Admission to the Program in Fashion Design & Merchandising
All applicants must meet the general undergraduate admission requirements.
- Admitted TWU students applying to the Fashion Design & Merchandising program will be admitted provisionally until the completion of FT 1013, FT 2013, and FT 2113 with a grade of “C” or higher during the first enrollment at TWU or any other collegiate program.

Possible approval for a second enrollment will be made by the Program Director after a face-to-face consultation with the student.
