Non-Trinity Summer Programs

Non-Trinity Summer Programs

There are so many amazing ways to spend your summer and so many programs available.  Trinity College generally approves summer programs offered by provider organizations and institutions that appear on Trinity’s approved list of study away programs for the academic year.  This list can be found in the Guidelines for Study Away link below or available at 66 Vernon Street. Please refer to the guidelines to assist you in identifying  international summer options or come in for an appointment.

If you are considering a non-Trinity summer program, please read the information below on how to fulfill the following steps for participation on your program of choice.  All students going on a non-Trinity summer program must complete the following:
 

1) Make an Appointment with an Advisor

If you are tring to decided or HAVE decided which Trinity Summer Program to apply to, the first step is to meet with Zachary Macines, Summer Program Advisor in the Office of Study Away. You can set up an appointment online by going to this link.
 

2) Submit the  SUMMER REQUEST to STUDY AWAY

 Any Trinity student planning on attending a non-Trinity Summer program, from another college or University or through a Study Abroad Program provider, MUST complete the SUMMER REQUEST to STUDY AWAY form. Once this form is completed and approved, you can then complete the following steps.   You will also work directly with your program of choice and submit to them the application for your program. 
 

3) Submit an  Application for Transfer Credit to the Registrar's Office

The rules for transfer credit outlined in the Student Handbook and the Guidelines for Study Away also apply to summer study away. If you wish to transfer credits back to Trinity from a summer program, you must submit an Application for Transfer Credit form to the Registrar’s Office prior to departure at the end of the spring term.  

The Application for Transfer Credit is available from the Registrar’s Office, an online copy is available above or you can get one from the OSA.  The form must be submitted to the Registrar's Office and, although not required, we would appreciate a copy of this form at the OSA.

Students should know that neither Trinity College nor the OSA oversee non-Trinity programs directly. After selecting a non-Trinity College program, students should work with their advisor, the registrar, and the program provider.

As always, if you are interested in gaining credit toward your major or minor, you must get documented approval for any course taken abroad by the department chair prior to departure of your program.  This rule for major or minor credit applies for Trinity as well as Non-Trinity Summer Programs!  If you have any questions, please contact the OSA at x 2005. 

If you are looking for major/minor credit, this must be documented BEFORE your participation on your summer program by the chair of your major/minor department.


4)Apply to your program of choice

Once you have met with the Summer Advisor and your Summer Request has been approved, go ahead and apply to your summer program.  Keep deadlines in mind as the application for summer programs tends to be consolidated!


5) Officially Confirm Your Program or Submit a Withdrawal Form

Once you have been accepted by a program, there is one more step -- you must confirm that you are accepting your place.

To Confirm

For Non-Trinity Programs, go to this link, log in with your Trinity email and password, click on "start a new application" and complete our brief confirmation form (you must also follow any confirmation instructions provided by your program).

6) Have an amazing experience!  It will be a wonderful, enriching summer - make sure to enjoy your academic and travel experiences!
