Domestic Programs

There are a number of domestic study options included in Trinity’s List of Approved Study Away Programs.  This is a great opportunity for students to take a semester or a year to enrich their Trinity College academics with other opportunities that may not be offered on our Hartford campus. 

Studying at a college or university outside of these programs is not considered studying away. Students who choose to do this must voluntarily withdraw from Trinity and apply directly to their institution of choice.  Students cannot petition for domestic programs not on Trinity’s approved study away list, and financial aid CANNOT be used for domestic study on a non-approved program.​​

12-College Exchange

The Twelve-College Exchange Program is a cooperative program for residential student exchange between Trinity and the following colleges: Amherst College, Bowdoin College, Connecticut College, Dartmouth College, Mount Holyoke College, National Theater Institute, Smith College, Vassar College, Wellesley College, Wesleyan University, Wheaton College and the Williams-Mystic Seaport Program. For more information, please contact the Office of Study Away.
