Transfer: Apply

Southwestern evaluates all candidates in a comprehensive way using multiple factors to help us reach our admission decisions. Interested students should complete and submit either The Common Application for Transfer Students or the Apply Texas application by the posted deadlines.  

We do not require application supplements, but do, however, encourage the optional Instructor Recommendation and Parent/ Guardian Recommendation forms.
