Resources for Parents and Families
Going to university is a significant milestone. It's a life adjustment - not only for students, but also for parents and families. Supporting your student as they transition to university life will greatly contribute to their success.
The university your student chooses will play a significant role shaping who they become. We take that responsibility very seriously. And that is why TWU is an outstanding investment.
On these pages you’ll find information on tuition & financial aid, admissions, visiting campus, as well as next steps for admitted students. For any questions you have about Trinity Western, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
