Early Decision Applicants

Students for whom Trinity is the first choice college, and who agree to attend if offered admission, may choose to apply under the Early Decision Program.

Early Decision: Option 1

  • All application materials (except the mid-year secondary school report) must be received no later than November 15.

  • Candidates will be notified of admission decisions by mid-December.

 Early Decision: Option 2

  • All application materials must be received no later than January 1.

  • Candidates will be notified of admission decisions by mid-February.

  • Candidates applying through Option 2 are permitted to apply to other institutions, but are expected to withdraw those applications if admitted to Trinity College.

Both options require a signed statement affirming the candidate's commitment to attend Trinity if admitted. Candidates may submit the Early Decision Agreement online through the Common Application site or the Universal College Application site, or print and fax a signed Early Decision Agreement (Common Application) or Early Decision Agreement (Universal Colllege Application) to 860-297-2287 by the application deadline.

Candidates will receive one of three decisions: acceptance, deferral, or denial.

Those denied admission under either early decision option will not be reconsidered during the regular season.
