Graduation Rate


Texas Wesleyan University graduation rate is below the national average.

41% of full-time students enrolled for the first time to Texas Wesleyan University completed the education program and got a degree in 150 percent of the expected time of completion.

The graduation rate value includes only programs that were completed less than six years for four-year degrees or less than three years for two-year degrees.

Graduation rate is the percentage of institution’s new-entering, first-time, first-year undergraduate students who complete their program within 150% of the published time for the program. Graduation rate excludes an extensive number of students. This index doesn’t consider students of nontraditional enrollments - part-time students, students who enroll mid-year, and who transfer from one institution to another. So graduation rate alone can create a misleading perception. Completion rate in the form of total number of students receiving any types of awards/degrees creates a complete picture. Combining this data with graduation rate is a better way to compare educational institutions.

Student Reviews and Ratings for Texas Wesleyan University

Overall Rating:

Overall Rating:

I never got to experience this campus because some of the recruiters who came to the TCC campuses were either; rude or what talk down about other four year campuses. I just did not care for the way Texas Wesleyan was presented to me by the recruiters. Maybe the University is a really good campus who needs better marketing by the recruiters they send out. And that is why I ended up and graduated from UT-Arlington..

Overall Rating:

Staff not very friendly. Checked the school out w my daughter after she was offered a scholarship. I know financial aid depts aren't the happiest/most fun place to be but I still expect to be treated respectfully & professionally. Was accused of lying on docs & questioned (interrogated) about how we are able to support ourselves (it was a VERY hard year for our fam). I left in tears. Humiliating experience. But, it all worked out. She is doing great at the other TWU (Texas woman's uni). TL/DR: bad experience. Wouldn't recommend based on fin. aid dept alone.

Overall Rating:

Not worth going to. Very over priced for what you get out of the school. Housing is terrible... ants everywhere, air conditioning doesn’t work and the building it self is very dirty. WiFi works like every other day. The school is just too old. The meal plan is too expensive for the same food you would eat everyday and is not sanitary... there was once a rat that a worker told me fell from the ceiling and they never closed down to fix the issue. This school doesn’t give a good actual college experience it just feels like being in high school all over again. Also, this area is not safe AT ALL. There’s been many assaults and robberies and you can even hear gunshots at night. I did not feel safe at the school at all and my parents were definitely upset about this campus. There’s always security on duty but yet, some how there’s always an incident that happens either on or near campus. They don’t even notify when some of the incidents take place. I personally wouldn’t recommend this school period.

If you want the best educational experience of your life, then go here! I went. My kids will go. I was never disappointed in the professors or the learning.

Overall Rating:

Such a great school. The clases are small enough that you don't get lost in the crowd. The professors are amazing, extremely knowledgeable in their area of teaching & passionate about teaching. Plus they really encourage students to get to know them, and are so supportive. The campus and students are not intimidating at all. Really feels like everyone knows everyone. It might be a small school but it has a huge impact on its students & staff.
