Maryville University WEC

  1. 0
    Hello!
    I was just wondering if anyone is currently or has recently attended the WEC program at Maryville. I read a lot of past posts about not being accepted unless you've taken some courses there but when I talked to an advisor the other day, she denied this... So just looking for some insight as to what the application process is like/waitlisting and what the average schedule is. I'm looking into applying for fall 2013 while I finish prereqs at STLCC and have a 2 month old son so this WEC program seemed to be the best option!
    Thanks in advance!

    Thank you for inquiring about this former requirement. I am the Maryville Vice President for the School of Adult & Online Education. The requirement you mentioned was eliminated a few months ago. We look forward to having you as a WEC student. Continue to work with your assistant director of admissions.

    Well that's great news! Thanks for the fast response! I've also read a lot about people being dropped from the program due to not passing a single demo... so I was wondering how that worked exactly.

    I owe you a huge apology. The 20 credit rule is still effective. I made a mistake when I responded to your post. Your admissions advisor will assist you with identifying the appropriate 20 credits. As far as your question regarding the demos I suggest you ask yor admissions advisor. We look forward to having you as a Maryville student

    I am currently in the Maryville WEC program. I don't know about the prereqs needed but when I applied I needed 32. I actually got a psych minor just to be able to enter the program. The difficulty of the classes is the same as other nursing schools, however what you heard about the demos is true. Most students that fail seem to have failed because of demos- which really isn't the best way of evaluating skills if you ask me. The program seems to be catching on slightly and trying to make a few adjustments, as they are losing reputation amongst students and many students are moving onto UMSL's program which is less expensive and slightly easier to manage as it is over 3 years rather than two. Make sure to check into UMSL as well.

    I am a student at UMSL's Part-Time Evening/weekend BSN program (just completed my second semester), and really like it! The instructors are great and it is managable to both work and go to school.
