Admission Requirements

Be More Than You Are.

At Dakota Wesleyan University, we believe that you are more than just what you might be known for. You might be an athlete, but you’re also a student. You might have a 4.0, but you also love music. You might have a deep faith, but you also like to have fun. We want to help you discover who you are as a whole person, not just little pieces of your identity.

Important Admission Information

We also want you to know that no applicant will be denied admission because of race, color, religion, national origin, disability, veteran status, sexual orientation, gender or gender identity, genetic information, age or other impermissible factors.  The university reserves the right to deny admission or continued enrollment to any student who imposes an unreasonable risk of harm to the health, safety, welfare or property of the university, members of the university community or him/herself.

Please also note that some of our programs have special requirements for admission, and so if you are denied admission into athletic training, education or nursing, you may be eligible for admission into other programs.
