COVID-19 Admissions Exceptions
The following exceptions apply only to the incoming class for fall 2020.
ACT or SAT Test Requirement
Due to the cancellation of ACT and SAT tests, the standardized test requirement will
become optional for students.
Students will be required to have a 2.75 unweighted GPA for acceptance without a test score.
A new matrix will be created to financially award students without a test score. Students with a 2.75 GPA will receive $8,000 on the new scale.
Students who were previously referred to the Enrollment & Academic Standing Committee will be accepted if they meet the 2.75 GPA requirement.
Students without a test score and with a GPA between 2.25 and 2.75 may appeal to the enrollment and academic status committee following the guidelines outlined for appeals in the Academic Catalog.
English Proficiency Requirement
Students will be allowed to use the current online TOEFL test to meet the English
proficiency requirement, so long as their country is offering the online TOEFL.
For this incoming class, Duolingo’s English Test may be used to prove English proficiency.
Transferring universities in the middle of your academic journey can be simultaneously exhilarating and overwhelming. At TWU, we work hard to make sure you feel supported and at home.
Who Can Transfer to TWU?
A transfer student is any student with 15 or more semester hours of college credit. Anyone may transfer to Tennessee Wesleyan, and there are no prerequisite courses.
Transfer applicants must have a cumulative transfer grade point average of at least 2.00 from all postsecondary institutions attended.
Your Previously Earned Credits Are Important
TWU’s Registrar's Office thoroughly evaluates all previously completed coursework to determine transferable credits. To see which of your credits will transfer in, get the application process started today.
Articulation agreements are equivalency tables for courses taught at local community colleges. With these agreements, TWU takes the guesswork out of how and which credits will transfer. These agreements also help simplify the process of figuring out what classes to take at a two-year community college when a student knows they will transfer to TWU to complete their bachelor’s degree.
