Requirements for maintaining eligibility

As a recipient of TWU financial aid, you must remain in good academic standing and make satisfactory progress toward your degree. Below are the eligibility requirements to receive any undergraduate financial aid.

  • Eligible Program: Students must be enroled in a traditional undergraduate program. Degree Completion, University Transitions and language training programs are ineligible for TWU financial aid.
  • Full-time status (12 or more credits per fall and spring semester): Courses taken simultaneously at another post-secondary institution will not be used to calculate full-time status at TWU.
  • Minimum 2.00 cumulative GPA.

Certain awards may also have additional criteria and higher GPA requirements for continued eligibility. To view your individual awards’ criteria, click here.

Exceptions to Eligibility Requirements

Students with senior status (90+ earned credits) who do not need or are unable to enrol in 12 credits in one of their final semesters may submit a “Senior Appeal” to awards@twu.ca to receive prorated TWU financial aid.

Students who are unable to meet eligibility requirements due to extenuating circumstances may request Financial Aid Appeal Form in person at the Financial Aid Office in the Mattson Centre.
