A college education is one of the most important investments you will ever make. Here is a breakdown of the undergraduate tuition costs and associated fees for an academic year. Remember, Trinity meets the calculated financial aid need of every student, so apply early.

We want to make sure that all of our fees are fully transparent. Here is what you’re paying for:
- General Fee – This recurring fee helps finance the operations of the student center and covers student lab fees, vocational testing, and admission to all Trinity athletic events.
- Student Activity Fee – Trinity has more than 100 student clubs and organizations. The activity fee helps cover the budget for these groups, plus student publications, admission to the Austin Arts Center, and WRTC, the campus radio station.
- Transcript Fee – This one-time fee entitles you to unlimited transcript production services.
All Trinity first-years are required to sign up for the Mather Traditional meal plan, which provides 19 meals a week and $50 in flexible “Chartwells Dollars.” You also have the option to beef up your meal count or allocate more money to flexible spending. Seniors, commuter students, and those living in buildings with kitchens can sign up for lighter meal plans.
Visit our Dining Services site (by Chartwells) for more information on meal plans and on-campus dining options.
Every Trinity student is required to have adequate health insurance coverage. We offer a comprehensive student health plan through Aetna Student Health. If you already have health care coverage, you can waive the student health insurance fee by completing a form. More details about the rates and the waiver form are available here
Trinity operates several international program sites around the world where students receive a Trinity-caliber education. While away, we ask that students pay a comprehensive fee to cover tuition, room, board, and all associated program cost.
