Harvey Resource Guide - Students


Academic Support

  • Your instructors are committed to providing you with a quality academic experience in your courses, despite the delayed start of the semester. Our faculty also will work with students affected by Hurricane Harvey on an individual, case-by-case basis to accommodate your needs. Faculty will determine how to best deliver their courses, so if you have questions about your classes, please contact your instructor directly.
  • Houston Nursing students who have requested transfers to the Dallas campus: please see Dean Anita Hufft's message.
  • Online classes are occurring as scheduled, and we are asking faculty to be flexible and work with students affected by Harvey. Please contact your online instructor directly for individual questions or contact Academic Affairs at (940) 898-3301 or email jmartin@twu.edu.
  • If you’ve lost academic materials such as books, scrubs, or other class supplies or equipment, please contact Student Life at (940) 898-3602 or email sbrown60@twu.edu.
  • Students with questions about academic support, should contact their faculty member directly or contact Academic Affairs at (940) 898-3301 or email jmartin@twu.edu.

Financial Aid Support

  • Most student financial aid was disbursed 10 days prior to the official start of classes, Aug. 28. These students should have received financial aid to their debit cards or bank account prior to Hurricane Harvey. Hurricane Harvey has not affected TWU’s ability to award or disburse financial aid to students.
  • Please be sure to document should you choose to withdraw from the university. You may be responsible for immediately repaying all or part of your financial aid package if you withdraw prior to completing 60% of the semester.
  • Any financial assistance received as disaster relief will not affect a student’s financial aid eligibility or financial aid award.
  • Students who experience difficulty in completing a financial aid application due to the disaster should contact Financial Aid for guidance and assistance.
  • We are committed to assisting you with your financial aid questions and issues that may arise. For questions about your individual financial aid options, please contact Financial Aid at (940) 898-3064 or email finaid@twu.edu.
