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 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.  The only exception to this requirement is withdrawal from FT 1013, FT 2013, or FT 2113 during the first enrollment for a serious issue that prohibits successful completion of the course.  A second enrollment is allowed only if the issue had been documented by the student and submitted to the Division Head of Fashion Design and Merchandising prior to withdrawal from the course during the first enrollment.  Possible approval for a second enrollment will be made by the Division Head after a face-to-face consultation with the student. 
  • Students transferring into TWU who previously completed any introductory sewing/apparel construction FT 1013, fashion sketching FT 2013, and/or flat pattern FT 2113 courses at another institution of higher education with grades less than “C” are not eligible for admission to the TWU Fashion Design program unless granted approval by the Division Head after a face-to-face consultation with the student prior to the first semester at TWU.
  • Students will be granted full admission to the Fashion Design program once all provisional requirements are met.  
  • Students not given full admission to the Fashion Design program will be required to complete a change of major.
