Enrollment Information

Open to adults of the community-at-large, the Academy of Lifelong Learning presents a series of mini-courses on diverse and stimulating topics. Enrolled students have access to many Trinity College resources, including use of the Library for research, discounts at Cinestudio, and most of the theatrical and musical performances at the Austin Arts Center, as well as College athletic events.

Courses cover a wide range of stimulating topics and are taught by distinguished former and current Trinity faculty members. The hallmark of a Trinity education has long been the close interaction between professors and students, and the Academy of Lifelong Learning continues that tradition. Courses are taught in an engaging, collaborative manner, and there are opportunities to meet with fellow students and professors. Classes are conveniently scheduled for the late afternoon and early evening. Classrooms are easily reached from the center of the Trinity campus. Well-illuminated, secure parking is available on campus, within walking distance to classrooms.
