J-Start Students

Starting Out - January 2018 

Starting Out is a communication system, using a variety of media, created to tell incoming first-year students and families what they need to know to “start out” at Trinity College. At the heart of this communication system is this website which you should consider your centralized location for materials that you need to read, reflect, and act upon before you arrive on campus in January. 

​Trinity Email and Account Login Information 

Information Technology Services will send incoming J-Start students new credentials for Trinity online services once your accounts have been set up. (Note: your new username and password will be different from your admissions login.) This confidential information, along with instructions to access the various services, will be sent in early November via the email address you provided on your admissions application. All Trinity students are provided a Trinity College email account through which the campus community will correspond with you. You should begin using it as soon as you receive your account information.
