Trans @ HWCs is the first trans-led organization and resource site developed to provide access to information and resources about trans life at historically gendered colleges. Dedicated to moving beyond numeric ratings that attempt to measure how "inclusive" a college is, Trans @ HWCs was created to imagine how we can transform educational institutions through education, advocacy, and empowerment by centering trans students.
Current Admissions Policies
Below, I have compiled all existing policies regarding transgender admissions at gender-selective colleges in the US (including women's, men's, and coordinate colleges), noting that these policies are inconsistent, perpetuate normative ideals, and create administrative barriers for trans students, and organizing identity into discrete categories of a table is both incomplete and problematic. As policies change, I will do my best to maintain and update this information.
For more information about these policies and resources, see TransAtHWCs.com-COMING SOON!
