Now that you're admitted to Trinity Western University, here's what you need to do next (and when): 

1) Apply for financial aid

Want to qualify for more than your academic scholarship? We offer need-based aid, which is determined by the difference between the cost of TWU and what you and your family can contribute. Learn more about (and apply for) TWU Financial Aid & Awards.

2) Pay your enrollment deposit

Save your spot and contribute to your first tuition payment by paying your deposit. Planning to commute? Your deposit is $200. Living in dorms? Your deposit is $400.

Enrollment deposits can be paid by cheque, secure online credit card payment, or other methods. Deposits are due by May 1. They are fully refundable until June 1. 

Nursing students: You will be informed about admission into the nursing program at the beginning of April. Once you're admitted to the Nursing program, an additional $500 deposit must be paid to hold your spot in the program.   

3) Sign up for dorms or register as a commuter

Planning to live on campus? You will need to fill out a housing application. Your deposit must be received in order to apply.  (Read our helpful hints before you register.)

Roommate assignments will be determined in July

Going to drive/bus/carpool/bike to campus?  Our commuter programs will make you feel right at home.

4) Upload your photo

Upload a photo for your student ID card, which also acts as your meal and library card, and gym pass. Sending us your photo before you show up in September ensures your ID card is ready when you arrive on Orientation Day so you can eat, check out books and use the gym right away.

Note: The photo must be a clear shot of your head and shoulders, similar to what's required for a passport photo.

5) Register for classes

Course registration for the September opens to everyone on May 16. After your deposit is paid, you can familiarize yourself with the process and your first-year classes

Note: Your deposit must be received in order to register for classes.

6) Apply for student loans

Planning to apply for student loans? You should begin the process in early June to allow enough processing time so the loan is ready for your first tuition payment. Processes differ between Canadian and American students. Keep a close eye on which details you need on the Financial Aid website.

7) Send official final transcripts to TWU

You need to make arrangements for all of your final transcripts (high school, post-secondary) to arrive at TWU as soon as possible. (Need more details?)

8) Confirm your TWU awards 

Confirming your awards online means they'll be applied toward your tuition payment.

Note: If you are expecting a Canadian Student Loan and would like to apply it towards your first payment, send (fax, email, or mail) a copy of your "Notification Of Assessment" or "Letter of Loan Confirmation to the Office of the Registrar. If your loan is not enough to cover all of your tuition and fees for the semester, you will be required to pay 50% of the remaining balance up front.

9) Make your first tuition payment

The first tuition payment for the fall semester is due Friday, August 5. Once your payment is received, you will be fully registered in your classes. (More details, including payment plans and options, available on Tuition Payments page.

10) Attend Orientation Week

Orientation Week is a fun tradition that'll make you feel right at home at TWU. O-Week begins Saturday, September 3.

Coming from the U.S.? When you travel to TWU for O-Week, you will need to acquire a study permit at the point of entry when you arrive in Canada. Once you arrive on campus, we will help you sign up for mandatory health insurance.
