Financial Aid

A Trinity College education is one of the most important investments you will ever make. It is an investment not only for today but also for a lifetime. While you and your parents are making a financial commitment to your education, Trinity has made its own commitment to meet the full, calculated need of all of our newly admitted first-year financial aid candidates. Together, we can make it possible for you to attain a Trinity College degree.

Because we are committed to meeting the full, calculated financial need of all the financial aid applicants we admit, we encourage applicants to apply for aid if there is any doubt that they and their families have the ability to finance their education.  Approximately 40 percent of our students receive need-based financial assistance from Trinity, and an additional 5 percent receive further financial assistance from federal, state, and private funds. Each year, the College commits more than $30 million of our own funds to financial aid.

Whether you are a prospective student or a continuing student, we stand ready to answer your questions about both federal and institutional guidelines and assist you through the application process. The information on these Web pages will help get you started.
