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. Students requesting a transcript should write to the Indiana Wesleyan University Registrar's Office, 4201 South Washington Street, Marion, IN 46953.

The following table indicates the cumulative grade-point averages (GPA) that will result in the application of academic sanctions. The table also indicates term grade-point averages that may result in students receiving a letter of academic warning.
The sequence of levels of achievement is allowed in order to help students accommodate the graduation requirement of 2.0 for most programs (students should be aware that some programs require more than this minimum for graduation).
Undergraduate students who fall below the minimum GPA levels indicated above and who have been placed on "academic probation" status are ineligible to participate in campus leadership or represent the university unless such participation is connected with a credit bearing course required in the student's current major area of study. Ineligibility for participation includes, for example, cheer team, club teams, extramural teams, intercollegiate athletics, music performance groups, ministry teams, student organization officer, and theatre productions/performances. Students on academic probation are not eligible to enroll in courses offered through the College of Adult and Professional Studies. In addition, most undergraduate student leadership positions have requirements in addition to the minimum above. Please reference IWU Student Handbook. http://www.indwes.edu/Residence-Life/.
Undergraduate students suspended for academic reasons may reapply after one semester away. Readmission is not guaranteed; however, all applications will be reviewed by the Academic Standing Sub-committee. Students must complete the following to be considered for readmission:
Undergraduate students dismissed for academic reasons may reapply after two semesters away. Readmission is not guaranteed; however, all applications will be reviewed by the Academic Standing Sub-committee. Students must complete the following to be considered for readmission:
Attendance Policy - CAS and Pre-licensure Nursing
CAS undergraduate and SON Pre-licensure students are expected to attend all sessions of classes for which they are registered. Official excuses may be given by the Academic Affairs Office or the Dean of School of Nursing for absences due to university-sponsored activities* (see below), for illness requiring hospitalization, death of a first degree relative, or other emergencies. University and World Impact groups taking students on off campus trips which require those students to miss class shall notify and gain approval of the Academic Affairs Office/School of Nursing prior to final arrangements for the trip. Faculty may not give a penalty for a university approved absence. The student is responsible directly to the instructor for all classes missed and to see that all work is made up. A student failing to attend classes and not withdrawing officially will receive a grade of "F." Students may not attend classes for which they are not registered.
If a student registers for but does not attend any classes, the registration may be cancelled by the director of records if the student has not attended by the last day to drop classes.
* Policy on Excused absences for Organizational Activities
Students participating in one or more student organizations may receive only one excused absence per semester for each course (evening courses excluded) in order to participate in an approved activity.
Graduate students should consult their relevant graduate program handbook for applicable attendance policy.
Final Examination Policy
A final examination is required in each course. It should be comprehensive in nature, requiring the student to use the accumulated knowledge and skills of the whole course. The two hours of final examination are scheduled as part of the total hours required in the semester. As a general rule students may not take final examinations early. If a student has more than two final exams scheduled on one day, arrangements can be made with the professor to change the exam that falls in the middle. Whenever possible, the rescheduled exam should be given at a time later than the originally scheduled period. Request forms may be obtained in the Registrar's Office.
Certain kinds of courses such as clinicals, practica, student teaching, studio instruction, and seminars may be exempted from final examinations but must plan to meet for instruction in the scheduled time.
Scheduled final examination times are expected to be adhered to unless an emergency situation arises. If a student requires a makeup examination, it must be given at a time later than the scheduled period.
