Your financial aid is based on the number of new credits you take each semester for federal aid and on half-time enrollment for institutional aid. When completing the IDP Independent Verification Worksheet, try to anticipate the total number of new credits you will take in both the fall and spring semester (include anticipated study units in your estimate).
You must be registered for at least two new credits per semester (the equivalent of half-time status; see chart below) to be eligible for federal loans and institutional funding.
|Less than Half-Time

Once Trinity has determined your student contribution and your calculated need, we will provide you with financial aid funding from a combination of state, federal, private and/or College sources. The amount and types of aid provided are known as your Financial Aid Package. Typically, your aid package will include a combination of loans, grants and employment opportunities. If you are already working full time, employment will not be built into your package. You must notify the Financial Aid Office if this is the case.
You will be billed for courses at the beginning of each semester. Bills are due in October for the Fall semester and in early February for the Spring semester. If you expect a refund of financial aid monies after direct expenses, you must complete a refund request in the Office of Student Accounts and Loans.
Note: Your financial aid award is not final until after the Add/Drop period ends and your credits have been verified by the Registrar’s Office.
