Non-Trinity Students

Application + Fees—Visiting Students (non-Trinity) Fall and Spring Semesters

Note that successful applicants will generally have a GPA of 3.0 or better and will have a good academic reason for studying at the Rome Campus. Also, please note that we have early admissions deadlines (see below), and the program is generally less competitive for students who apply early.

Spring 2016:

Early Admissions Deadline: August 28th, 2015
Final Deadline: October 2nd, 2015

Students who apply by August 28th will have their applications reviewed first.

The 2016 Spring semester will begin January 22nd, 2016 and end on May 6th, 2016

Nuts and Bolts

  • Payment schedule: A nonrefundable $500 deposit toward the comprehensive fee is due upon acceptance of admission (if you are a financial aid student and the deposit would be a hardship, we can work with you). The balance is due in early August (for Fall students) and mid-December (for Spring students).
  • Acceptance: Accepted students must confirm that they would like to accept their spot in the program no later than the deadline given in their acceptance email. Upon acceptance, each student must pay the deposit and return the signed legal release agreement.
  • Passports: Each participant is required to have (a) a passport that is valid at least six months beyond the end date of the program and (b) a student visa. The passport is required for the visa application. Therefore any participant without a suitably valid passport must obtain one immediately upon acceptance of admission to the program. Instructions for obtaining or renewing a passport may be found at the state department web site.. Instructions for obtaining a visa will be provided after acceptance of admission to the program. Orientation materials are provided to participants prior to departure.
  • Students must enroll full-time: a minimum of four course credits, a maximum of 5.5 course credits. Every student must enroll in a course in Italian language or literature in Italian.
  • Exceptions to established charges cannot be granted.
