Completion of Summer Classes

The timeline for the Gateway Program is very compressed and leaves little time for students to submit transcripts, attend orientation, and register for classes. It is recommended that you make an early request to have your transcript sent to the Office of Admissions Processing as soon as you complete your summer coursework.

Note: It is your responsibility to submit the Gateway Contract and college transcripts to the Office of Admissions Processing.

If you meet the eligibility requirements you will receive an email notifying you of your admissions to Texas Woman's University for the fall term.

If you do not meet the eligibility requirements, we encourage you to continue taking courses at a community college. Please re-apply for a future semester by submitting a transfer application once you have accumulated twelve college level credit hours.

If you have questions about program requirements or if a course will transfer please contact the Office of Admissions.
