Admission Requirements

You've Got Two Ways To Apply

Admission requirements depend on if you apply with or without test scores. Check out which option is right for you.

No matter what you chose, if you're admitted, there is a scholarship with your name on it. Apply with your test scores to have the best chance at the biggest scholarships.

Applying With Test Scores
  • A GPA of 2.5 or above on a 4.0 scale--until further notice, we will accept unofficial high school transcripts
  • SAT score of at least 1,000 if taken after March 2016 
    • We only take two scores: 1) evidence-based reading & writing and 2) math
  • or an ACT score of 19

We'll accept both the new SAT (taken March 2016 and after) as well as the previous SAT.

We have good news. We'll take your best scores from every standardized test you've taken and average them together. That's called your "super score." Keep in mind; we can't create a super score with an old and new version of the test.

I Don't Meet Admission Requirements

If you don't meet the requirements, you can start the process for your application to be reviewed by the Committee on Admissions, Scholarships and Financial Aid.

  1. You must submit all of the following items to your admission counselor:
    • A personal essay about why attending Texas Wesleyan would be beneficial for you
    • Provide letters of recommendation
    • Submit a resume
    • Participate in a personal interview
  2. Once you have turned in all of your paperwork, your file will be sent to the committee on Admissions, Scholarships and Financial Aid for review and a second admission decision.
GED Requirements

If you did not graduate from high school, you'll need an average score of 500 on the GED exam. Once you've taken the test, mail a copy of the GED certificate and the official report of test with your application.
