How to Apply

Trinity College requires that students interested in studying away have a minimum cumulative grade point average of 2.5 and be in good academic and social standing at the college.  All eligible students who meet these requirements will automatically be enrolled in a Study Away "course", not for credit, in the Moodle system.  For those students who are interested in possibly studying away, this  will walk them through the steps required which include watching a video on the study away process at Trinity, meeting with an advisor, completing a Request to Study Away and then submiting a program-specific application.

The Request to Study Away is an on-line application for students to obtain approval from the College to study away in general and a link to it is in the Moodle presentation.  At this time, students are asked for their first choice program and also the semester and year they would like to study away.  Based on this information, they are assigned to an advisor in the Office of Study Away who will work with the student through the application process and will continue to be a resource while the student is abroad and also when they return to campus.

The Request to Study Away is not a program application so after the Request is approved, students must then apply to the specific program they are interested in.  Students interested in Approved External Programs must apply directly to the program.  Every program has different eligibility requirements and application deadlines and it is the responsibility of the student to know what these are.  The Trinity Office of Study Away strongly encourages students to apply to their program as soon as possible and to not wait until the application deadline.  Many programs accept students on a rolling basis so waiting until close to the deadline to apply can result in a rejection if the program is already full.

Most applications are are online and can be found by going to the website for the program provider but ay questions can be directed to the Trinity study away advisor for that area.
