The comprehensive fee for the 2014-2015 academic year is $31,570 per semester. This includes tuition, fees, food stipend, furnished accomodations (including bedding), excursions, study tour to Costa Rica, cell phones, medical insurance with HTH Worldwide, internet access, transportation to internships, 24 hour student support by Trinity staff and activities. It does not include meals, airfare, local transportation, books &supplies, laundry, phone calls, personal items, entertainment, or personal travel.
Since everyone has different spending habits, it is difficult to estimate what other expenses students should budget for but it is generally recommended that students bring or have access to a minimum of $1000 to pay for books and supplies, toiletries, clothing, souvenirs, entertainment, phone calls, postage, and local transportation. Former students recommend bringing $2,000, but state that you can get by with less money, if you are careful. If you plan to shop and travel a great deal, you may wish to increase this amount.
While students live in dorms on the university campus, there is no meal plan but they do receive a meal stipend from the Trinity staff in Trinidad.
