Students who decide to transfer to Dakota Wesleyan University will receive an additional $2,000 in scholarship funds beginning in January of 2021.

In addition to the $2,000 transfer scholarship, students will also have opportunities to receive academic, athletic, fine arts and needs-based scholarships, according to a press release from the school.

“In a time of uncertainty, many students are questioning their path and struggling to know what to do next. This transfer scholarship encompasses what it means to have a fresh start,” said Fredel Thomas, vice president of admissions and marketing for the school. “Our whole campus community, from faculty and staff members to coaches and directors, will go above and beyond to make sure your experience at Wesleyan is one you will cherish for the rest of your life.”

The release states that DWU is transfer-friendly and promises to turn what can be an overwhelming and lengthy process into a smooth and easy transition for all new students. The school’s admissions team will work with each students individually from the time they apply to their first day of class and beyond.

“I transferred to SWU because I felt right at home as soon as I was on campus. DWU challenges and encourages students in a unique, effective and different way from all other universities. The professors go above and beyond to create personal relationships,” said Jadie DeLange, a DWU transfer student.


In-person classes for the next academic semester will bring Monday, Jan. 18. Students can apply for admission to DWU any time between now and Jan. 8.

“As we work to create the safest environment for each and every member of our campus and community, our goal is to keep students on-campus and in the classroom,” said Thomas.
