Loan options for Canadian and US Students

Loan options for International Students

International students can access most forms of financial aid administered by TWU.  However, Canadian Government Student Loans are only available to Canadian citizens and permanent residents.

International students may qualify for government student loans granted by their home country.  Students should refer to the foreign school policies for their student loans in their home country. Banking institutions in Canada offer student lines of credit to those who have a credit history in Canada.  Otherwise, it is recommended to research options in their home country.
