Note that graduate students often pay for their courses through employer tuition remission programs; ask your employer, if they offer a tuition benefits plan.

Payment Options

Students in a degree program can pay tuition bills online through TrinBillPay.  For Summer Sessions, they can be billed only if they register by May for Session I and June 1 for Session II.

For other students, registration is processed only after payment is made. Checks should be made payable to "The Trustees of Trinity College" and submitted to the  Office of Graduate Studies, 300 Summit Street, Hartford, CT 06106.

For complete information about payments and billing, visit this page.

Automatic Payment Plan

​​Students in a degree program can enroll in an automatic payment plan, allowing them to register early without having to pay the bill at the time of registration.  Bills can be paid over the course of a few months.  This program, available via e-cashier, charges a $25 per semester nonrefundable fee, without interest.  This option is not currently available for Summer Sessions.


Students admitted to Trinity who expect to receive Veterans' benefits should communicate with their local Veterans Administration Office and request an application for educational benefits.  The benefits application process should be initiated at least six weeks prior to the beginning of classes.  For additional information, please contact the Registrar's Office​ (860) 297-2118.
