Cost of Attendance

Although TWC charges program and housing fees, the more relevant consideration is the total you will owe your institution and/or TWC. You may find that a semester or summer with TWC is comparable in cost to what you’d pay for the same term on campus.


Take these steps to see how much it will cost for you to participate in TWC’s academic internship program:


  1. Contact your liaison to see how TWC will work for you. Many colleges and universities ensure that their students do not pay both tuition on campus and TWC fees, but arrangements vary at each institution. If you need help contacting your campus liaison about the arrangements at your institution, email
  2. See if your financial aid package can be applied toward TWC costs (or adjusted to account for any increased cost of attendance). We also encourage you to ask if additional support is available at your college or university.
  3. Review scholarships on TWC’s website. You may be eligible to receive funding through a state grant. There are also private scholarships available for campus leaders, students from diverse backgrounds, members of honors societies and programs, students with disabilities and more.
  4. Apply to the program. You will be able to select the scholarships you’d like to be considered for in your application, but we also recommend contacting to ask about additional support from TWC.

Note: Some scholarships are contingent on staying in TWC housing. Students will be notified of scholarship awards on a rolling basis after the regular deadline for any given term. If you are selected to receive a scholarship, you will be informed by email.
