Admission Requirements

How long does it take?

Your application is complete once you've turned in all your requirements – usually test scores and/or transcripts. You can expect to receive your decision letter in as little as one to two weeks.

What are the requirements?

Fewer Than 24 Credit Hours

  • High school diploma or equivalent
  • A GPA of 2.0 on a 4.0 scale
  • SAT score of at least 1,000 if taken after March 2016
    • We only take: 1) evidence-based reading & writing and 2) math
  • or ACT score of 19
  • or THEA score of 230 on the Reading and Mathematics sections and 220 on the Writing section
  • All college transcripts

Students with fewer than 24 credit hours must also provide a high school transcript(s), so an equivalent university GPA can be computed.

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."

If you took CLEP or AP tests in order to get ahead, we'll need your official test scores to give you credit at Texas Wesleyan.

24 Credit Hours or More

  • All college transcripts
  • A GPA of at least 2.0 on a 4.0 scale

Academic programs may have additional requirements for entrance, and students are subject to review by the dean of the appropriate school for admission approval.

What are the 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.

Office of Admissions
Texas Wesleyan University
1201 Wesleyan St.
Fort Worth, Texas 76105

Under 25 years old? You'll still need to take the SAT or ACT and have a 2.5 GPA. Over 25? You'll need to take the THEA test. Contact Karina Bretado at 682-478-8605 or to schedule a test date.

What if I don't meet the criteria?

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.

You must submit the following items to your admissions counselor:

  • A personal essay about why attending Texas Wesleyan would be beneficial for you
  • At least two letters of recommendation

You have the option of:

  • Submitting a copy of your résumé
  • Participating in a personal interview with your admissions counselor

    Once you have turned in your paperwork, your file will be sent to the committee for review.
