A Unique Degree

A Unique Degree

Students majoring in Interdisciplinary Studies work closely with an advisor to plan your own degree


Midway University’s Interdisciplinary Studies degree is a program that emphasizes the abilities most demanded in today’s workplace: oral and written communication, critical thinking, technology and information literacy, as well as global awareness.

The Interdisciplinary degree program is flexible and relevant. You will work closely with an advisor to plan your own courses of study, which can be broad or tightly focused on one or two disciplines.

No two student’s path are alike within the Interdisciplinary Studies program, it is truly a unique, self-designed program.

As an Interdisciplinary Studies student, you will also participate in research projects and/or internships to gain real-world experience and help you create a job-ready resume.

Do I need to submit my high school transcript to apply?

An admission decision can only be made with official documents. Transcripts are considered official when they are either mailed directly to Midway University from the issuing institution in a sealed envelope or sent electronically by a secured third party such at National Student Clearinghouse or Parchment.

How much will it cost?

Midway University works hard to provide quality degree programs at an affordable price for our students. Students can view our Tuition and Fees Schedule online.

Make sure you get the whole picture before making your decision. First, complete your FAFSA so you can see what financial aid you are eligible to receive and complete your application. Once you are admitted to Midway University, you can meet with our Financial Aid Office to discuss all the eligible aid (federal, state and institutional) that you have access to and apply for scholarships. This is the only way to figure out the true cost and if you will have any out-of-pocket expenses to cover.

Can I transfer credits from another school if I am accepted into this program?

Midway University accepts transfer credits from regionally accredited institutions that are 100-level or higher with a grade of “C” or better. At the time of admission, our Admissions Counselors will provide an unofficial evaluation of your transfer credit. An official evaluation will be completed by the Registrar’s Office after acceptance.

How do I register for classes or sign up for housing?

Once you have been accepted, the Admissions Office will communicate the Next Steps for you to sign up for an Eagle Prep Registration and explain the Housing Application Process if you plan to live on campus.
