*It is important to note that the charts below represent resources that students and families are often able to save before students enter their first year at TWU during a typical year. The estimated student savings in the below charts may be less this year as opportunities to work have been limited due to COVID-19 restrictions. Once again, students are encouraged to use this link to view the TWU page that outlines government financial support as students and families navigate the financial impact of COVID-19.

Summer employment: Following your first academic year at TWU, your summers will be four months long!  If you work 40 hours per week at $13.85 per hour, you could make just over $8,000 over the summer.
