Would Southwest ever consider a former student for a weather internship?

New Arrival

I am six classes from a BS in Meteorology but have above a Bachelor's Degree.  I cannot go back to finish the degree without starting over and won't have nearly enough financial aid to do so.  I have still kept up with weather forecasting, especially severe weather forecasting as a hobby.  I started a career shift because I was in a field I did not enjoy, and I am obsessed with weather.  

The weather internship position says must be a current student.  Would Southwest Airlines ever consider a former student who completed all but six required upper level meteorology courses for an internship if they have the passion and know how to forecast?  I want to apply, but it looks like I'd be immediately disqualified because of not being a current student.
