Admission of International Students

Texas Wesleyan University welcomes applications from international students. International students seeking admission to Texas Wesleyan University must hold the equivalent of a U.S. high school diploma and be proficient in English. Acceptance to the University may be granted on the basis of an academic record otherwise complete but pending final secondary school graduation. However, a final secondary school transcript documenting graduation must be submitted prior to the beginning of the student's initial semester at Texas Wesleyan University. For complete application instructions, international applicants should refer to the international admissions pages at

First-year applicants will be reviewed for regular admission according to a cumulative weighted secondary school grade point average (GPA) of 2.5 or above (on a 4.0 scale). Applicants with thirteen or more transferable college-level credits are reviewed for regular admission based on a U.S. equivalent cumulative GPA of 2.0 or above (on a 4.0 scale). GPA does not include remedial or non-college level work. Coursework taken in through a trimester system will be converted to a 4.0 scale.

For undergraduate admission consideration, international applicants must submit the following:

  1. Completed and signed International Student Application.
  2. Transcripts, marks-sheets, and other evidence of the applicant’s educational experience, including complete records from secondary schools and each college or university attended. Applicants with the equivalent of one year or more of college-level study may submit only college or university records. Records should include courses taken and grades received and must reflect degrees and diplomas awarded. Certified English translations must be submitted as requested and as appropriate. Texas Wesleyan University evaluates all records, determines equivalency per the U.S. credit system and, in certain cases, may require evaluation by a university-approved foreign credentials evaluator.
  3. Evidence of English proficiency through one of the following:
    1. TOEFL (Test of English as a Foreign Language) score of 68/190/520 (internet, computer, paper-based) minimum (scores must be less than two years old);
    2. IELTS score of 6.0 minimum (must be less than two years old) or 5.0/5.5 for full admission via the Linguistic Diversity Bridge Program (scores must be less than two years old); 
    3. Other official evidence of English language proficiency, as approved by Texas Wesleyan University.

      Note: The University is the sole judge of a student's English proficiency.

To be issued Form I-20, international applicants must be admitted to the academic program and must submit evidence of sufficient funding for the period of study in the U.S.

Prior to registration, proof of medical insurance approved by Texas Wesleyan University is required. If insurance is not submitted, a charge will be posted to the student account for a policy.
