Graduate Next Steps
Congratulations and welcome to Texas Woman’s!
There are a few things you need to do as a graduate 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
- Go to gmail.twu.edu and log in with your Pioneer Portal login. The first login must be on a desktop or laptop computer. Your email login information is the same as your Pioneer Portal. Example: JPioneer@twu.edu
- Follow the prompts to add your account
- You can access your TWU Gmail account anytime from gmail.twu.edu or logging into your Pioneer Portal account at portal.twu.edu
We recommend checking your TWU Gmail account daily or once a week. This is where communication from TWU is sent, including scholarships and financial aid award letters, housing selection and enrollment information, so it's important to check it often. For help, contact email@example.com or call 940-898-3971.
Step 3: Apply for Financial Aid
- Applications open: Oct. 1
- Renew FAFSA each year to qualify for more types of financial aid
- TWU's institution code: 003646
- TWU's FAFSA priority deadlines:
- Summer & Fall: Jan. 15
- Spring: Sept. 1
Step 4: Apply for Scholarships
- Fall deadline: March 15
- Spring deadline: Dec. 14
Step 5: Meet with your Advisor
Step 6: Register for Classes
Step 7: Attend Orientation
You'll learn vital information about TWU's graduate school at orientation.
Step 8: 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.
