Financial Aid Program

Need-Based Awards

Eligibility for need-based awards is determined by the student’s and his or her family’s financial situation. A standard formula is used nationwide to evaluate the student’s and family’s ability to pay for post-secondary expenses. This formula takes into account variables such as: family income, assets, taxes paid, family size, the number of dependent children in post-secondary studies, etc. The resulting figure is subtracted from an institution’s cost of attendance to determine a student’s total need. The amount of aid awarded may or may not meet the student’s total eligibility. The application is available at twu.ca/awards.
