Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, many colleges have suspended or relaxed some admitted student requirements and extended decision and enrollment deposit deadlines. We recommend that you contact the colleges to which you have been accepted directly for the most updated and accurate information.

Texas Christian University, founded in 1873, is a private, church-affiliated university. It is a major teaching and research university with the feel of a small college. It is large enough to challenge and small enough to care, an affordable, private university with a faculty that cares, friends who last, values you expect and viewpoints you don't. TCU attracts and serves those who want to lead and learn. Its 237-acre campus is located three miles from downtown Fort Worth.
