Timing is the most critical element in the financial aid process. Trinity will meet the calculated need of all financial aid applicants whose files are complete by April 15th. Late applicants will receive $300 less grant per month until all required documents are received by the Financial Aid Office. To complete your file by our deadline, you need to adhere to the following:
U.S Citizens Living Abroad
- Please follow the application instructions listed here
- Please file the CSS/Profile and submit your Canadian tax returns
All Other Passport Holders
- All other passport holders: Please file the CSS/Profile, the Certification of Finances, and foreign tax returns translated into English with US dollar equivalencies (or income statements from employers if foreign tax returns are not filed)*.

Special note to non-financial aid recipients
On occasion, international students who were admitted to Trinity without institutional grant assistance inquire if they may apply for financial aid in a subsequent year. In light of the College’s commitment to continue to meet the calculated needs of students receiving institutional aid, it is unlikely that resources will be available for enrolled students not currently receiving institutional funds. Enrolled international students who wish to submit a first-time application for institutional aid should meet with the international aid administrator to discuss the application process and to review the list of required documents. All applicants must adhere to our published April 15th deadline.
