The university was chartered on April 17, 1911 by the five Annual Conferences in Texas of what is now the united methodist chruch. Classes were originally planned to start in 1913 but were postponed until 1915.

SMU’s establishment was the result of an unsuccessful attempt to relocate Southwestern University from Georgetown, Texas to either Fort Worth or Dallas. The first relocation effort, devised by Polytechnic College president Hiram A. Boaz and spearheaded by Southwestern president Robert Stewart Hyer initially involved merging Southwestern with Polytechnic College, now Texas Wesleyan University. The post-merger university would retain the Southwestern name while occupying Polytechnic’s campus in Fort Worth.
