Which academic transcripts are required?

Which academic transcripts are required?

Please submit via email as scanned attachments to, all examination results, marks, transcripts or grade sheets from your secondary school, as well as those from any post-secondary college or university attended.

While scanned documents are sufficient for admissions purposes, we require your original, official documents in hard copy when you arrive on campus and prior to your first semester at Texas Wesleyan University. Your original international transcripts will be returned to you after certified copying and filing with the International Programs Office.

If your documents are not issued in English, please provide an English translation. You can locate an accredited translator through the American Translators Association.

NoteWhile we do not require an ACT or SAT score for international admissions purposes, one of these scores is required for top-tier scholarship consideration.
