Destination WT is a partnership that West Texas A&M University has pursued with surrounding two-year colleges to help provide students with a way to transfer in the future.

Former FPC student Emily Martinez, who currently attends WT, said she recommends Destination WT.

“It ensures that you are prepared to handle classes at WT,” Martinez said.

To qualify for Destination WT students must be enrolled at Amarillo College, Clarendon College, FPC or South Plains College; have earned fewer than 25 credit hours; and, meet the regular transfer admission requirements that are posted on the WTAMU website. However, if a student does not meet the previous requirements they will need to fill out an Apply Texas Application.

The benefits to Destination WT include a waived application fee, early admission to a WTAMU and program of choice, and an assigned transfer counselor. Also, those in the program will receive invitations to sporting, cultural events at WTAMU free of charge and up to $1,500 in guaranteed annual scholarships upon transfer.

Gwynne Walker, WT transfer assistant director of admissions, said there aren’t really any drawbacks to participating in the program.

“A student can apply through Destination WT and if they decide to transfer early they can,” Walker said.

Those who are considering participating in Destination WT are highly encouraged to finish their associate degrees at a junior college. This better prepares them for university as well as saves money in the long run. For more information on this program, visit http://www.wtamu.edu/admissions/destination-wt.aspx
