PAY YOUR DEPOSIT
Your deposit is $9990 less your academic scholarship for one semester. Check with your admissions counselor to determine the exact amount. Your deposit can be paid via Flywire.
APPLY FOR A STUDY PERMIT
Getting a Canadian study permit is a crucial part of the application process. It can take months to learn whether you’ve been approved. Get started by applying online once you paid your deposit and have your official Letter Of Admission (LOA). You may also need to apply for an Electronic Travel Authorization (eTA).
SIGN UP FOR DORMS OR REGISTER AS A COMMUTER
Planning to live on campus? You will need to fill out a housing application in the application portal. Roommate assignments will be determined in July.
UPLOAD YOUR PHOTO
Upload a photo for your student ID card, which also acts as your meal and library card and gym pass. Sending us your photo before you show up in September ensures your ID card is ready when you arrive on Orientation Day so you can eat, check out books, and use the gym right away.
Note: The photo must be a clear shot of your head and shoulders, similar to what’s required for a passport photo.
REGISTER FOR CLASS
Course registration for September opens to everyone on May 15. Familiarize yourself with the process and your first-year classes on our website.
SEND YOUR FINAL OFFICIAL DOCUMENTS
If you haven’t already, please make arrangements to send official copies of any required documents (e.g. transcripts, language test results, etc.) to Trinity Western.
CONFIRM YOUR TWU AWARDS
Confirming your awards online means they’ll be applied toward your tuition payment. Learn more on our Financial Aid website.
MAKE YOUR FIRST TUITION PAYMENT
The Enrollment Deposit will be applied to the cost of your first semester enrolled at Trinity Western University. (More details, including payment plans and options, available on Tuition Payments page.)
CROSSING THE BORDER
Have the letter confirming your study permit in hand when you land in Canada. It’s also recommended you have all of your acceptance and financial documents (preferably the originals) available, too.
Once you land, please expect the process of going through customs and settling any immigration issues to last approximately 1 - 2 hours. (If you haven’t already, please send a quick email to inform your admissions counsellor about your travel plans.)
GETTING TO CAMPUS
If you need a shuttle to campus, we encourage you to make arrangements with Airport Link Shuttle. Directions to campus are available on our website. If you’re travelling with your family, we also have a list of nearby hotels where they can stay.
SETTLING IN DORMS
Travelling with bedding isn’t ideal. We can sort out arrangements to help you get to a local store to pick up what you need once you arrive. Find a full list of everything that is (and is not) needed in dorms on our website.
HEALTH INSURANCE: Every TWU student must sign up for health insurance during orientation.
EMPLOYMENT: A study permit allows full-time students to work off-campus part-time during the school year (max. 20 hours per week) and full-time during summer and breaks. You will need to apply for a Social Insurance Number.*
BANKING: It is recommended to open a Canadian bank account.*
THE GLOBE: It’s a lounge and set of living apartments created to build community among TWU’s international students. Come for a visit when you arrive on campus!
ATTEND ORIENTATION WEEK
Orientation Week is a fun tradition that’ll make you feel right at home at TWU. O-Week begins Saturday, September 1.
*Can be completed when you arrive on campus.
