Federation of North Texas Area Universities

Established in 1968 to promote inter-institutional collaboration, the Federation provides TWU degree-seeking graduate students access to the combined graduate course offerings of three major universities and the convenience of seamless cross-registration with the assistance of Federation Representatives in each graduate school. When taking courses through the Federation, TWU students earn TWU credit; the courses appear on their TWU transcript, and they pay TWU tuition.
