Transfer Admissions FAQ
How do my classes transfer?
We recommend that you obtain a copy of all your college transcripts and set an appointment with a Transfer Counselor who will complete an evaluation of your credits. We review your transcripts and input that information on an Advising Worksheet. This form has each student's personal classes applied to their desired degree plan. It lets a student know what transfers and what is needed to complete their degree and graduate from Texas Wesleyan University.
Do my grades transfer with my transfer course or just the credit hours?
- Both credit hours and grades transfer with the transfer courses.
