Graduation Rates: Right to Know

Six-Year Graduation Rates

In accordance with the Higher Education Act of 1965, as amended, Dakota Wesleyan University is pleased to provide information on the graduation rates of our full-time, first-time, degree-seeking undergraduates and student-athletes who received athletic financial aid.

While reviewing this information, please keep the following in mind:

  • All graduation rates are based upon six years of attendance which equates to 150% of the normal completion time of our longest program.
  • Our university’s mission does not include providing substantial preparation for students to enroll in another eligible institution without completing or graduating.
  • These charts do not identify the reasons why our students withdrew; therefore, students who withdrew for personal or medical reasons are included.
  • Graduation rates do not include students who left the school to serve in the armed forces, official church missions, foreign aid service of the federal government, or students who died or were totally and permanently disabled.
