About Distance Education

TWU offers various degrees, programs, and courses online through Distance Education (DE). Distance Education allows students to take courses through the Internet without coming to campus. Online courses are delivered through Canvas. Students must have access to a computer and the Internet to participate in online courses.

TWU provides support for online students, whether you need help with technical issues, tutoring or other needs. Distance Education courses cost exactly the same as face-to-face courses. Bills may vary from semester to semester and from other students depending on residency status and academic level.
