Smarter U+ amounts are for students beginning in the 2022-23 academic year

Visit Campus

Picking a college is a huge decision — but we're here to help. Earn your first $500 by taking an official campus visit by July 15. You'll learn more about what makes Texas Wesleyan Smaller. Smarter. and meet an admissions counselor.

Submit your FAFSA or TAFSA

Getting financial aid starts with your FAFSA or TAFSA. It's a free application you'll send to the U.S. Department of Education to help get scholarships, grants, work-study and student loans. 

It's important to submit your FAFSA early so you have time to get your ducks (and dollars) in a row. Add our school code — 003645 — to your FAFSA app by our priority deadlines below and be on your way to an extra $500 per year.

  • Spring deadline: Dec. 1
  • Fall deadline: Feb. 1 for freshmen, April 1 for transfer students

Get started

Get accepted and meet with your admissions counselor
