Academic Advising

Main Content

New Students

Academic advising provides crucial support for students, whether they are first-year college students or considering transferring to TCU. Their goal is to help students achieve academic success and encourage them to continue learning throughout their lives.

Transfer Students

Special consideration will be given to admission of students with special talents whose application profiles diverge from the general population of students admitted and enrolled. Special Talent admission decisions will be made by committees or admission officers empowered by the Chancellor.

Transfer Requirements

We have a checklist of things to make your transition to TCU seamless. You can also register for special campus events designed to introduce you to the university: our Frog Shadow program (about 3 hours) and/or the full-day Experience TCU.


TCU’s Transfer Student Experience hosts a variety of programs for transfer students to connect to TCU and other transfer students.
