Advising, Services + Resources

Trinity IDP provides advising and services geared to adult learners, together with full access to all of Trinity’s academic resources.


Because entering IDP students are transitioning to academic life at Trinity, we have created a comprehensive advising system. Each new student is assigned a faculty adviser who is a member of the IDP Council, which makes all IDP admissions decisions. Your faculty adviser will be familiar with your background from the admissions process and will help you identify the resources you need to succeed at Trinity. Your adviser will oversee your academic progress until you choose a major, when you will have an adviser from your major department. In addition, current IDP students serve as peer mentors.
