Why do transfer students choose Texas Wesleyan?

10.21.2013 | By:

Nearly half of Texas Wesleyan’s incoming class comes from transfer students. This fall, we had 267 transfer students and 266 incoming freshmen.

So what makes Texas Wesleyan so appealing to transfer students?

Barry Grubbs, senior transfer admissions counselor, cites several reasons:

  • Convenient geographic location
  • Small student-to-faculty ratio
  • Classes taught by Ph.D faculty
  • Small campus
  • Texas Wesleyan’s academic reputation
  • Friendly family environment

“Transfer students choose Texas Wesleyan initially because of our attention to their needs,” Grubbs said. “They tend to stick around because they see the same individual attention from faculty in the classroom. At Texas Wesleyan, it’s personal.”

A smooth transition to Texas Wesleyan

With our transfer equivalency guides, it’s easy for community college students to see which of their credits will transfer.

What also makes the transition easy is that most of Texas Wesleyan’s classes are the same size or smaller than classes at community colleges. Plus, our admissions counselors are willing to sit down with students before they start classes at a community college to make sure the students don’t take any unnecessary classes and that they are on the right track to transfer to Texas Wesleyan.
