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.

Fall 2015: We are not yet accepting Fall 2015 applications (our online system will not allow you to select Fall 2015 as a term yet). If you wish to be notified when we are open to Fall 2015 applications (we expect the application to go live in early December), please email us at tcrc@trincoll.edu and let us know so we can put you on our notification list.

Fall semester will begin on September 4th, 2015 and end on December 18th, 2015.

Spring 2016: We are not yet accepting Spring 2016 applications (our online system will not allow you to select Spring 2016 as a term yet, and you should not have any hard copy materials for that term sent to our office yet). If you wish to be notified when we are open to Spring 2016 applications (which will be by May 2015), please email us at tcrc@trincoll.edu and let us know so we can put you on our notification list.

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.
