Application Process

  • Fill out online application for free
  • Submit transcripts through InCred (incredevals.org) or WES (wes.org)
  • Submit ACT or SAT test scores, as well as TOEFL scores if from non-English speaking country
  • If from a non-English speaking country, you will need to provide proof of English proficiency. You may do so through submitting your score from the following exams: TOEFL (79), Duolingo (95), or IELTS (5.5). You can also provide proof that you have completed a college level composition course and/or verification that you have completed an ESL program (if English is an official language of the student's country, or if the student has been enrolled at a U.S. institution where English is the language of instruction for at least a year, they are exempt from providing proof of English proficiency).
  • Submit scanned passport


Once accepted, students will fill out a form of financial certification, submit an immunization record form, and must pay their balance for the semester. After this, students will receive an I-20 in the mail and be ready to come to Athens!

International Student Admissions

You are welcome here!

One of the best parts about being a student at Tennessee Wesleyan University is interacting with others from all over the world. Our international students enrich the campus community and help us all expand our worldview. 


To apply, international students will have to meet certain academic and testing requirements. Details on testing may be specific to each student, so it is best to speak to your admissions counselor to ensure you're providing accurate needed information. 


The support you need from the beginning.

Studying internationally is exciting, but there are also challenges. At TWU, you'll find support from the moment you reach out to us. An admissions counselor will personally walk you through the application process, you'll meet Dr. Bocco - a dedicated faculty member invested in the success of international students and you can join the Multicultural Student Association where you can share and celebrate your culture with the rest of campus. 

You'll never be alone when you become a TWU Bulldog!
