Standardized Testing Waivers

Trinity will waive the standardized testing requirement for transfer applicants who have a minimum of eight (8) completed full-credit courses (or the equivalent).  In certain cases, the Office of Admissions may request standardized test scores from a transfer applicant if, after an initial review of the application, we determine that such testing is necessary to complete our decision process. 

Standardized Testing Requirements

If an applicant does not qualify for the standardized testing waiver described above or is asked to submit standardized test scores after an initial review of a transfer application, that applicant must submit one or more of the following standardized testing options:

  • any two SAT II Subject Tests
  • the SAT I Reasoning Test
  • the ACT (writing is recommended)

(Submission of any one option satisfies our standardized testing requirement.)

English Proficiency Testing for Non-Native English Speakers

The TOEFL is required for all non-native English speakers.

  • The TOEFL is waived for students whose language of instruction has been English for the last three years.
  • The IELTS will be accepted in lieu of the TOEFL.

Trinity Score Choice Policy 

Trinity’s Office of Admissions considers an applicant’s highest section scores from all testing dates as part of our final admissions decision.  (This policy includes both the SAT I and ACT.)  Each time an applicant submits new scores, we will update his or her record with those scores.  We strongly encourage applicants to submit his or her entire testing history because of this policy.

It is the applicant's responsibility to have test scores sent to the Admissions Office. Trinity's CEEB code is 3899; our ACT code is 0598.​​​​​​​​​
