Admission into Texas Woman’s University is only the first step in helping you achieve your life goals. At TWU, pioneers aren’t just figures from history — they explore beyond the traditional classroom and laboratory, working side by side with faculty who are pioneers in their own fields. Our pioneers strive to make the world a better place.

To make life easier while you obtain your degree, we have listed important resources that pertain to new and current students. Keep in mind that success at the graduate level requires students to know all the resources and policies that pertain to them. You are encouraged to contact your department coordinator or advisor with any additional questions you may have. The graduate catalog also has important information that can help answer many of your questions.
