Canadian citizens
Please file the CSS/Profile and submit your Canadian tax returns.
All other passport holders
Please submit the following forms:
  1. CSS/Financial Aid PROFILE
  2. Certification of Finances Form
  3. Foreign tax returns translated into English with U.S. 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‚Äôs 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.
