Academic Development

An integral part of the Complete Champion Approach (CCA) is to support student-athletes towards intellectual development and excellence during their time at Trinity Western University. Student-athletes are required not only to strive towards graduation but to take advantage of many academic support options so that they can achieve academic success along with athletic superiority.

Academic Services:

  • Academic Advising

Every Trinity Western University student is assigned an academic advisor in the department of their major (undecided majors will follow a slightly different protocol). Assigned academic advisors are required to guide students through their course selection decisions and are also available for questions pertaining to their major and field of study.

  • Athlete Academic Resources

"The CCA seeks to develop the student athlete in all areas of their life. Although the athletic program has drawn them to TWU, achieving academic success remains a top priority. The move from High School to University can be very challenging at various levels for the student athlete. Issues like time management, study habits, relationships and adjusting to new life style priorities can have an effect on academic success. The CCA program provides each Freshmen and Sophomore with ongoing support from the Academic Coach. This resource person meets with each athlete regularly over the 2 year span. The frequency of meeting varies with both the Academic Coaches and students' perception of the ongoing need. It should be emphasized that the goal of the CCA to academics is to assist each student to achieve to their potential not simply to meet minimum requirements for eligibility or scholarships. Team coaches are very interested in the success of each athlete and receive ongoing updates on each athlete." Brenda Keis, Academic Coach

  • Campus Study Halls and Collegiums

The University offers many studying and networking locations across campus including the study rooms at the Norma Marion Alloway Library, Fraser Lounge, the Atrium and Lower Cafeteria. Undergraduate student Collegiums are also offered which have lounge-like atmospheres also equipped with computers and kitchens for students to use. Collegiums are great places for students to gather, eat, socialize, network academically and get more involved in the University community. Collegiums are primarily for commuter students during weekday hours, with night and weekend hours available for students living on-campus. Students can visit the West Coast Collegium (located in the Douglas Center) and The Marlie Snider Collegium (adjacent to the Neufeld Science Center) to become members.
