TWU is devoted to transfer student success
At Texas Woman’s, more than half of our undergraduate students start their education at a community college or other four-year university and transfer to TWU. We offer small class sizes, a welcoming environment and an easy transfer process. Our collaboration with the North Texas Community College Consortium (NTCCC) allows for pathways leading to a BAAS with the following community college partners:
- Collin College
- Dallas County Community Colleges
- Hill College
- North Central Texas College
- Tarrant County College
- Trinity Valley College
- Tyler Junior College
A private school education at a public school price
At TWU, we believe in a quality education that is affordable and accessible. This is why we offer more than $15 million in scholarships annually, including many just for transfer students. Most students are able to maintain their scholarships for up to two years.
TWU also ranks high in keeping costs low and education quality high:
- No. 2 in the state for adding value to a student’s earning potential, according to The Economist Magazine
- 9th among all Texas public universities at keeping college costs down, according to College for All Texans

TWU does more to build women leaders
The U.S. saw a record number of women CEOs in Fortune 500 companies in 2019. However, that record-high number was still only 6.6%. TWU is working to help change the disproportionately low number of women in leadership positions.
With more than 100 years of experience educating women, 70% of our faculty and staff being women and a 7th (tied) place ranking among US universities for diversity, TWU aims to increase female diversity and leadership roles on campus and in our communities.

As a TWU student, you also have access to the Jane Nelson Institute for Women's Leadership. The Institute is dedicated to preparing more women to take on successful roles in business and public service. Through its three specialized centers, we ensure women have the education to establish careers as successful C-suite executives, the skills for building entrepreneurial businesses and the framework needed to run for public office. Centers under the Institute include:
