Next Steps

Congratulations and welcome to Texas Woman’s!

There are a few things you need to do as a first-year or transfer student before getting to class.

1. Create your Pioneer Portal account

Your Pioneer Portal account must be set up before you can access your TWU Gmail account. Pioneer Portal is where you will accept your scholarships and financial aid, sign up for housing, register for classes and more.

From Pioneer Portal you can access your TWU Gmail. Your login information will be the same as your Pioneer Portal.

Example: JPioneer@twu.edu

SelfService is where you can view your degree plan and schedule of classes.

For help with set up, contact servicedesk@twu.edu or call 940-898-3971.

2. Check your TWU Gmail account regularly

We recommend checking your TWU Gmail account daily or once a week. This is where communication from the TWU will be sent, including scholarships and financial aid award letters, housing selection and enrollment information, so it's important to check it often.

For help, contact servicedesk@twu.edu or call 940-898-3971.

3. Apply for Financial Aid

You may be asked to submit additional documents by TWU to complete the FAFSA process. Requests will be sent to your TWU email, so remember to continue checking your email account. If you receive a request for additional documents, it’s important you respond as soon as possible so your potential financial aid isn’t affected.

  • Applications open: Oct. 1
  • Renew FAFSA each year to qualify for more types of financial aid
  • TWU's FAFSA priority deadlines:
    • Summer & Fall: Jan. 15
    • Spring: Sept. 1

TWU's school code: 003646 

4. Apply for Scholarships

  Submit the TWU General Scholarship Application and automatically match with scholarships you qualify for.
  • Fall deadline: March 15
  • Spring deadline: Dec. 14

5. Register for Orientation

6. Housing

Housing is required and guaranteed for students under 21, or with fewer than 60 credit hours.

7. Pay Tuition & Fees

  • Pay by the posted deadlines to avoid deleting your course schedule.
  • Review your tuition charges and fees.
  • Learn how to sign up for installment payment plans.

8. Submit your Immunization Records

Texas requires all students to provide proof of immunization.
