Admission to Texas Woman’s University is based on a number of criteria including academic achievement, academic preparation and standardized test scores. An offer of admission from TWU is valid for one academic year (fall to summer, spring to fall, or summer to spring), if the applicant has not attended another institution of higher education. If students do not attend TWU within 12 months, they must reapply, pay the application fee, and submit the appropriate credentials. Students wishing to change their application term should contact the Office of Admissions Processing or complete the Application Change form. Please refer to the admission categories at the left for specific admission requirements.
TWU defines a domestic applicant as an applicant who holds one of the following:
- A U.S. citizenship, permanent resident card, or naturalization document (U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services); or
- INS form Notice of Action I-797 stating that permanent residency is approved; or
- Permanent resident endorsement on passport.
These applicants should complete a domestic (freshman, transfer, graduate, readmit, or transient) application via ApplyTexas.
For admission purposes, Texas Woman’s University defines an international applicant as a foreign national who is or will be studying at a U.S. institution on a non-immigrant visa. These applicants must complete the ApplyTexas international application. This includes students who hold a non-immigrant visa/status and attend high school in the U.S.
