Student Right to Know
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 that received athletic financial aid.

While reviewing this information, please keep the following in mind:
  • All graduation rates are based upon 6 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 or on official church missions or with a foreign aid service of the federal government, or students who died or were totally and permanently disabled are excluded from the data.
