Application Deposit Policy

A non-refundable $150 deposit is due at the time of application. Applications are accepted on a rolling basis and no application is processed without the deposit. The deposit is applied to the program cost and is not an additional fee. The application deposit is non-refundable unless the student is not admitted into the Trinity College Summer Study Away program or the Trinity College Summer Study Away program is cancelled. Failure to complete the application does not warrant a refund of the application deposit.


A limited amount of scholarship funds are available for Trinity students studying on the Rome summer program. However, students are only eligible to apply AFTER their acceptance into the program, and will be provided with a scholarship application in the post-acceptance materials. Unfortunately, visiting students from other colleges are ineligible for scholarships at this time.

Enrollment Requirements

Students must enroll and complete the courses required for their program.  For the five week program this is enrollment and completion of two courses.  For the three week program this is one course.  Add/Drop is permitted ONLY for the five week courses by the end of the second day of class. 

Withdrawal from a course once on-site is NOT permitted except in the case of serious illness or family crisis.  No refunds will be issued.
