CPC enjoys a unique partnership with Trinity Western University, providing students with a solid foundation in the liberal arts, taught from a Catholic perspective, as they work their way towards an undergraduate degree in any one of the 45+ undergraduate majors offered by TWU. Students at CPC can concurrently pursue a Catholic Theological Studies Minor while undertaking their course of studies at TWU.
CPC's sections of TWU courses are taught at our building, nestled next to the Salmon River creek near historic Fort Langley. Over a hundred students currently call Catholic Pacific College home as they pursue their choice of degree programs at TWU. The CPC building has been affectionately nicknamed by students as the Catholic Pacific “cottage”, because of the cosy old house where we come together as a community.

Understanding the Relationship Between CPC and TWU
How does CPC work with TWU?
Catholic Pacific College is a teaching institute for Trinity Western University and is located right at the entrance to the university. CPC provides Catholic courses for the core curriculum, various concentrations, and a Catholic Studies Minor at Trinity Western University. However, at CPC, we offer more than just academics. We have an amazing community of Catholic students who are centred on Christ, and nurtured by the Sacraments on campus. Our Chaplaincy, under Fr. Lawrence Donnelly, provides Mass on Campus from Monday to Thursday at 11am, as well as Confession, spiritual direction, adoration, and catechesis. The student association provides activities and events to foster community and encouragement in individual growth in faith.
How do I apply to CPC?
First - Contact CPC Admissions (Scott Roy) to connect with us and let us know you're interested. We will answer any questions you have and walk you through the process. We are here for you from your first questions to your graduation and beyond. At any point in this process, we invite you and encourage to come down to our CPC building and meet with us! We would love to give you a tour of the place and help you understand all of the benefits of studying at CPC/TWU
Second - The entire admissions process happens at TWU, so we will connect you with the right TWU Admissions Counsellor, or you can find them here.
Third - You will need to apply to TWU. Your TWU Admissions Counsellor can help you do that, or you can start the application here. We strongly encourage you to connect us right before or right after you apply if you have not already. We will be able to help you find the right Catholic courses for your program.
Fourth - You will need to place a deposit before you can begin choosing your courses. That deposit is handled through TWU. When you are ready to register for CPC courses, you will find them in the same place you register for all of your TWU courses. You are simply looking for ones marked with a 'CP' after them (ie. RELS 160 CP).
Fifth - Join us on campus! At the beginning of the academic year, join us at our table on O-Day (Saturday before school starts). Then, come out to our Wednesday Socials to meet other Catholic students. Next, sign-up for our Fall Retreat, the perfect way to begin your time with CPC/TWU. Finally, just be a part of our community and bring a friend!
