Can I utilize dual credit courses I have taken to substitute for portions of the 学习 & 获得项目?
而达科塔·卫斯理的学习 & 获得项目 does not accept dual enrollment credits toward the associate degree, we do apply them toward the completion of a bachelor’s degree.
达科塔·卫斯理认为学习 & 赚是一种身临其境的综合学习体验. Students will be asked to engage in a variety of communication, 定量, and problem-solving tasks throughout the course of the program. Students cannot be excused from engaging in those activities by virtue of having taken an English composition course or a public speaking course. 学生可能, 然而, apply dual credit courses toward the completion of a bachelor’s degree through Dakota Wesleyan (i.e. 一旦他们完成了学习 & 获得副学士学位).
我可以报名学习吗 & 获得项目 if I’ve already completed 50 or 75 hours of college course work?
这取决于这些学分是在什么领域获得的, 个人也可以注册学习 & 获得项目 and count a significant number of those earned credits toward a bachelor’s degree.
If there’s a certificate that I want to complete, can I simply enroll in that portion of the program?
Dakota Wesleyan enrolls students to complete individual certificates on a “seats available” basis.
我可以“测试”学习的任何部分吗 & 获得项目?
一般来说，没有. 达科塔·卫斯理认为学习 & 赚是一种身临其境的综合学习体验. As such, it is difficult to excuse students from particular portions of the program.
达科塔卫斯理学会 & 获得项目 makes every effort to place students in internships that match their professional aspirations and that they will find challenging and fulfilling. A part of growing and maturing as a professional means learning what we find rewarding and satisfying in our work and what we find less rewarding and satisfying. Dakota Wesleyan is not averse to allowing students to change internships (provided it has additional internship openings available), 但它鼓励他们在学期结束时退出.
简短的回答是“不”.” Dakota Wesleyan is seeking to provide a unique career preparation experience. Dakota Wesleyan encourages students who wish to continue working full-time to explore the many online programs available.
Can I work through the self-paced components of the program at a faster rate and complete the program early?
简短的回答是“不”.” Dakota Wesleyan is seeking to provide a unique career preparation experience. While some students may compete particular components faster than others, this will not enable them to accelerate the time it will take them to complete the program.
If I’ve already earned a degree and want to complete a certificate, 或者我已经用光了所有的经济援助, are there scholarships available to assist with the cost of the program?
如何录取学生 & 获得项目?
Students will submit an application and high school and any college transcripts. 在现场举行的一次学生活动中, students will be asked to attend to visit and learn about all the different aspects of the program. 接受将基于可用性和潜力.
需要参加实习. 所有的学习 & 赚 participants are strongly encouraged to participate in the internship portion of the program.
What if I don’t have transportation to get to an internship?
Dakota Wesleyan will work with students to place them in internships that that match their professional interests and that are conveniently located. The university does not, 然而, provide transportation to internships.
Am I able to work at different places over the course of the 学习 & 获得项目?
Dakota Wesleyan believes that more and deeper learning occurs and that a student builds a stronger resume when the student remains in the same internship for the bulk of the program. 然而, if a student changes their mind about his/her professional path, the university will work to place the student in an internship that more closely aligns with the student’s professional aspirations.
我必须在学校实习吗 & 赢得合作伙伴公司?
Dakota Wesleyan is willing to explore alternative internship arrangements provided that such arrangements provide students with ample opportunities to achieve program learning goals and the alternative site has someone willing to agree to the university’s supervisory expectations.
你所做的工作将与你的职业道路相一致. Dakota Wesleyan works with its internship partners to construct internships in such a way that a student’s internship responsibilities grow appropriately in breadth and complexity over the course of the internship.
是的. Students must maintain good academic standing to remain in the program and continue in their internships. Likewise, students must continue to perform satisfactorily in their internships to maintain them.
