On Tuesday, July 21, the local health authorities and medical directors of Tarrant County and the cities of Arlington and Burleson issued a joint order affecting public and non-religious private pre-K through 12 schools in Tarrant County, the City of Arlington and the City of Burleson. This order prevents these pre-K through12 schools from re-opening for on-campus, face-to-face instruction or activities until Sept.28, except in certain narrow circumstances. This order does not apply to colleges and universities in Tarrant County.
Texas Wesleyan University remains committed to starting our fall semester on Aug. 17 with in-person classes in a hybrid format. This format enables us to accommodate social distancing during in-person class meetings and will help keep our students, faculty and staff safe.
As we described in our June 15, communication, in general, the new hybrid class format will look like this:
Some graduate-level courses, like those for nurse anesthesia, will not follow this hybrid schedule, but will have all the safety measures in place needed for in-person classes.
Students who cannot attend in-person classes, or prefer to attend classes remotely, will be provided recordings of lectures and class materials. Classes offered in real-time virtually will also be recorded for students not able to meet during the class time.
We are encouraged by the recent data showing a lowering in the rate of spread of the virus in Tarrant County as a result of the proper use of masks and social distancing. Our return to campus is built upon these effective protocols for safe interactions.
We continue to work with local public health experts and local governmental authorities to monitor current conditions and will continue to provide you updates on the effect of these conditions on our plans for the fall.
I’m registered for a daily visit. What should I do?
Currently, all daily campus visits are canceled through May 8. We hope you can join us at a later date. In the meantime, you can watch the videos to give you a virtual tour on our page. Look for the icons.
Will this affect the timing of my admissions decision?
No. This will not impact our admissions decisions and merit scholarship offers. Once your application is complete you should expect a decision within 1-2 weeks.
Will more visit dates be added later?
We hope so. We will continue to monitor our spring visit schedule to accommodate as many visitors as possible once the campus re-opens. Check your email for communication regarding visit programs as decisions are made.
Texas Wesleyan was supposed to visit my school. Will they still be here?
As of now, all admissions related travel is suspended. If you have questions, reach out to your enrollment counselor for a meeting!
Are other TXWES offices open?
Yes. We are continuing with business as usual though most of our staff are working remotely. You can still call and email offices with any questions or concerns. Use the links below to find the info you need – including contact info.
