Academic Information - Graduate Studies in Nursing
Academic Calendar - Graduate nursing courses are offered under the semester hour system but in a non-traditional academic calendar. Each major consists of required courses taught in an accelerated, modular format, and taken sequentially. Each major has an online component. The Nursing Administration and Nursing Education majors are 100 percent online. All online classes meet in an asynchronous environment through Blackboard. The Primary Care major has a significant online component, but also includes on-site classes in specified courses. On-site classes meet for four hours on a weeknight.
Catalog Governing Graduation - Students must meet the graduation requirements as stated in the university catalog under which they enrolled. Students who maintain continuous enrollment, who make normal progress toward a degree, and who earn their degree within a maximum of four years from the date of enrollment may meet the graduation requirements as stated in the catalog under which they enrolled. Students who withdraw from Indiana Wesleyan University for more than six months will meet the graduation requirements as stated in the catalog under which they resume enrollment. Students changing majors or programs must meet requirements as stated in the catalog that is current at the time they make such changes. The same holds true for students moving between schools and colleges.
Core Requirements - The integrity of the adult and graduate programs requires that the core courses be met at Indiana Wesleyan University. Students are required to complete the first course of the core program with a passing grade in order to maintain enrollment with their cohort. In general, no waivers are allowed for courses taken at other colleges/universities.
Final class dates as established by the calendar will be the final date for completion of the core curriculum. No compressing or doubling of core work is permitted to accommodate earlier completion or graduation schedules.
