State Mandated Immunization Requirement
Effective January 1, 2012, State of Texas law requires that all new and transfer college students must receive a vaccination or booster against bacterial meningitis. This applies to both undergraduate and graduate students. Students who were previously enrolled at TWU but not enrolled during the Fall 2011 term are also required to receive the vaccination to enroll for Spring 2012. More Info.
Our Admissions Counselor, Jackie Smith, is available to help you gain a solid understanding of what is required for admission into TWU's different programs. For all populations including freshmen, transfers, and graduates, she is able to go through requirements, deadlines, and additional questions that may arise throughout the admissions process.
Please be reminded that certain programs have additional admissions requirements, and you must first be admitted to the University, and also to that specific deparment's program.
The Admissions Office serves as a starting point for any individual who desires to further their education with TWU. Prospective students and their families who wish to tour the campus and learn more about our programs are invited to join us for one of our Open Houses. Open Houses are held twice annually, typically on a Saturday in February and October. Additional tours may be scheduled, depending on the availability of the Admissions Counselor, though it is a limited tour without the access to labs that you normally see during an Open House event.
