The student's official transcript is prepared by the Indiana Wesleyan University Registrar's Office and will show the course, grade, credit and dates of instruction for each course. Requests for transcripts of coursework at Indiana Wesleyan University must conform to the Privacy Act of 1974, which requires that all transcript requests be submitted in writing and signed by the student, for protection of the student's confidentiality. A transcript is official only when it bears the university seal.
It is university policy not to release a transcript if the student has any financial holds on their record or if he or she is delinquent on any loan received through Indiana Wesleyan University. A $3 fee is charged for each transcript and must be enclosed, along with a complete address to which the transcript is to be mailed. Please provide a current address if request is to be sent to student's home.

Academic Terms - CAS and Pre-licensure Nursing
The regular academic year consists of a fall semester and a spring semester. Fall and spring semesters consist of 13 weeks of schedule classes and a two hour comprehensive final exam. As a general rule, a credit hour includes a minimum of 42 hours of coursework with 1/3 being classroom or equivalent instruction and 2/3 being outside course engagement. On average a three credit hour course requires a minimum of 126 hours of work. An equivalent amount of work is required for non classroom credits. An undergraduate student is classified as full-time when enrolled for 12-16 credit hours in a semester. Graduate students are classified as full-time when enrolled for 9 credit hours in a semester. Students may complete the 124 semester credits required for a baccalaureate degree with four semesters of 15 credits and four semesters of 16 credits.
Undergraduate students who wish to register for more than 16 credit hours must meet the following criteria:
Special sessions include:
Students may earn a maximum total of sixteen CAS credits during the summer terms (May, S1, S2 and S1T)
Academic Terms - CAPS, Post-licensure and Graduate Nursing, Seminary
College of Adult and Professional Studies (CAPS)
CAPS courses are offered under the semester hour system but in a nontraditional academic calendar. Each program consists of specific courses that are taught in a modular format and taken sequentially. Courses follow a block sequence, one course at a time, with cohort groups pursuing programs that continue year round, until the program requirements have been completed. Core groups meet on the same day for the duration of the program. Classes meet for four hours on weeknights or Saturdays (classes in the M.Ed. program meet for eight hours on Saturdays). Students are also required to complete project team assignments.
Students may only be active in one IWU college due to financial and academic credit implications and may not switch back and forth between the term and non-term programs. IWU students enrolled in IWU colleges other than the College of Arts and Sciences may not enroll in classes in the College of Arts and Sciences. Students in the College of Arts and Sciences can take designated classes in the College of Adult and Professional Studies elective offerings in the summer ONLY if the class begins after the first day of May term and has an end date of the last day of Summer 2 and if the course has been approved for CAS credit. Students who plan to change from programs and degrees in one college to programs and degrees in the other should carefully examine the ability to apply courses from one program to the other. Please visit the Registrar's Office for more information.
