NEW! Ask TWU knowledgebase

Do you have a question about TWU or do you wonder how a certain process works? Try out the new Ask TWU. Ask TWU is a knowledge base where you simply type in any question you have about the University and the related answer will be returned to you. If the knowledge base does not have an answer to the question you ask, your question is added to a list of new questions to be answered and entered into the knowledge base. You also have the option to have your question emailed to the appropriate department. Give it a try! You can find the Ask TWU button on the TWU home page at http://www.twu.edu/ or on the Distance Education homepage at http://www.twu.edu/dl.
