For parents and families

Each Tennessee Wesleyan orientation has a family track that will provide sessions to inform families of the variety of services that TWU has to offer students. Parent and family attendance is not required, but we strongly encourage participation. Parents and students will have the opportunity to meet one-on-one with Financial Aid during orientation.

 

For first-time students, there is a two-day family schedule, and the personalized financial aid meeting occurs on day two.
