Recently, SCS partnered with the International Yacht Restoration School (IYRS) to offer IYRS students a direct path to an Associate's or Bachelor's degree based on experiential learning.

IYRS students who have completed the Marine Systems or Composite Technology programs will earn 15 credits at RWU. IYRS students who complete the two-year Boatbuilding & Restoration program will be granted 30 credits toward the Bachelor of General Studies or an Associate program at RWU. The credits will be applied toward elective requirements.

IYRS students who enroll in the Bachelor of General Studies program will be encouraged to pursue the Technology Leadership and Management concentration. In order to apply the IYRS credits, students must apply and be accepted to the RWU SCS. The application fee will be waived for IYRS graduates
