What is a First-Year Student?

First-year applicants are those who:

  • Will graduate or have already graduated from high school. High school seniors accepted as first-year students before graduation must submit a final transcript verifying graduation prior to enrolling in TWU coursework.
  • Will complete or have completed a home schooling program
  • Hold a GED certificate of completion
  • Have attempted fewer than 12 credits of college work after High School Graduation.

TWU is one of the most affordable colleges in Texas, which as a first-generation college student is important to me and my family. I also appreciated how much the professors and staff are so supportive and help me with any questions I might have. Choosing TWU is the best decision I ever made.
