ACADEMIC POLICIES

Add/Drop: Students may not attend class or receive credit unless they have registered before the end of the add/drop period and have finalized their registration with the business office. Registrations will not be accepted after the official ending of the add/drop period.

Students may add or drop a course through the fifth business day of the semester in the fall or spring semesters. Permission of the college dean, the student’s adviser and the instructor are required to add or drop a class from the sixth day through the tenth day of the semester. Adds or drops are not allowed following the tenth day of the semester. Students may drop courses during the add/drop period with no entry on their academic transcript.

Withdrawing from a class: Students may drop courses during the add/drop period with no entry on their academic transcript. From the beginning of the second calendar week, students who withdraw from a course are assigned a W (Withdraw). The withdrawal form is available at www.dwu.edu/registrar/add_drop.htm

Grades and Grade Point System:
The grading system at Dakota Wesleyan involves letter grades that are assigned a quality point value per hour of credit as follows:

A Superior 4.0
A- 3.7
B+ 3.3
B Above Average 3.0
B- 2.7
C+ 2.3
C Average 2.0
C- 1.7
D+ 1.3
D Below Average 1.0
D- 0.7
F Failure 0.0

All A, B, C, D and CR grades earn credit. These grades may be used in the student’s degree program and toward the total hours required for a degree depending on specific policies described in this catalog. The F grade does not earn credit but is computed into the GPA. All grades will be recorded on your transcript and become a part of your permanent record.

Transcript: Your transcript is your academic record of all courses taken, credits and grades earned, and grade point average. In order to get a copy of your official transcript you must make the request in writing to the registrar’s office. A form with additional instructions is available on our website at www.dwu.edu/registrar/transcript_request.htm

These and other important academic policies are on our website at: www.dwu.edu/catalog/regulations.htm
