Student Location Notice

Professional licensure requirements vary by location and disclosures to students are required when a program does not meet the requirements within the student’s location. Determining student location is important to ensure Texas Wesleyan’s compliance with federal and state regulations requiring the University to disclose state-specific professional licensure information to students based on where they are located.

A student’s location is defined as the place in which a student is currently living (e.g. current address) at the time of enrollment in a professional or occupational licensure or certification program, not the student’s state of residency.

How To Make Changes To Student Location

Students may notify Texas Wesleyan University of a change in their location by changing their student record current address information. Students may change their current address information by completing the Student Address and Name Change Form and submitting it to the Office of Student Records (Registrar) in one of the following ways:

  • In person: Oneal-Sells Administration Building 3rd Floor
  • Fax: 817-531-4464
  • Email: registrar@txwes.edu
  • By mail: Office of Student Records, 1201 Wesleyan St., Fort Worth, TX  76105

For more information on student record information, please visit the Office of the Registrar’s website.
