Financial Information

Payment Help - Payment with Loans or Grants

Using Financial Awards and/or Student Loans for your payment? Once the Office of the Registrar has received confirmation of your TWU Scholarships/Bursaries, Government Student Loans/Grants, Torch Benefits, Staff Tuition Benefits and Professional Development Awards, these funds will be applied to your Registration Invoice which can be viewed on the Student Portal.  

Government Student Loans

If you are expecting Government Student Loans/Grants these funds may not automatically appear on your Registration Invoice. If the loan funds are not listed on your Registration Invoice, each semester, you are required to fax, email, mail or bring in 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.

In most cases, the Loan funds come directly to the university and we will confirm your course registration when the Office of the Registrar receives of your Notice of Assessment, even though funds are not released until the beginning of the semester.

In some cases, at time of loan application students can select the disbursement of their loan funds either to the university or to their personal bank account.  If you select the loan funds to be disbursed directly to the University, the Office of the Registrar will confirm your course registration on receipt of your Notice of Assessment even though funds are not released until the beginning of the semester.  If you select loan funds disbursed to your personal bank account we will NOT confirm course registration based on loan funding and you must make the required payment by payment deadlines.

If you do not confirm your negotiated loan documents (via the post office) or arrange to have the loan funds arrive at Trinity Western in time for the stated deadline then you must make payment by other means by the Payment Date in order to maintain your class registration and avoid interest charges and late payment fees.

Once the loan funds are deposited in Trinity Western’s bank account, they will then be applied to your student account and you will receive an email confirming the receipt of the loan funds.
