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:
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.
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 here
