First-Year & Transfer 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 classes start.
Step 1: Your Pioneer Portal Account
Pioneer Portal is where you will accept your scholarships and financial aid, register for classes and more. Your Pioneer Portal account must be set up before you can access your TWU Gmail account.
SelfService is where you can view your degree plan and class schedule. Use it to sign up for classes and make sure you are on track to graduate. For help with set up, contact firstname.lastname@example.org or call 940-898-3971.
Step 2: Your TWU Gmail Account
Step 3: Apply for Financial Aid
Step 4: Apply for Scholarships
- Fall deadline: March 15
- Spring deadline: Dec. 14
Step 5: Attend Orientation
- First-Year Students: Register online (required)
- Transfer Students: Register online (recommended)
- Dallas Campus Orientation
- Houston Campus Orientation
- International Student Orientation
Step 6: Housing
Housing is required and guaranteed for students under 21, or with fewer than 60 credit hours.
Step 7: Pay Tuition & Fees
Pay by the posted deadlines to avoid deleting your course schedule. Review your tuition charges and fees and learn how to sign up for installment payment plans with the Bursar's office.
Step 8: Immunization Records
Texas requires all students to provide proof of immunization. Find instructions on how to submit your immunization records here.
