Dakota Wesleyan University has announced that it will enter into a Teach-Out agreement with Presentation College, becoming a South Dakota option for involved students. Presentation announced earlier this week that it will close operations at the end of the 2023 summer term.
A Teach-Out is an arrangement through which two educational institutions provide students with the opportunity to complete their course of study when one institution closes. Dakota Wesleyan will accept any currently enrolled Presentation student with automatic admission and no application fee. The agreement will ensure that all academic credits will be accepted and that students will be able to graduate on the same timeline. Additionally, new students to DWU who come from Presentation will be guaranteed comparable net tuition, ensuring that their net student/family contribution will be the same.
DWU President Dan Kittle was pleased with the agreement. “Although the closure of Presentation College is a difficult circumstance, as it would be for any institution, its faculty, staff and students, we at Dakota Wesleyan are positioned to assist students in any way we can. We are grateful to be selected for the Teach-Out and we will work with the students, their families and the supportive staff at Presentation to ensure that students’ transitions are as seamless and easy as possible.”
DWU will begin working with Presentation students immediately and will be present at a planned Teach-Out Fair to be held Jan. 30-31 on the Presentation campus. Questions about the Teach-Out agreement at DWU can be directed to Fredel Thomas, Vice-President for Enrollment and Marketing at 605-995-2650 or by emailing email@example.com.
