We won’t let financial need stand in the way of you and a Trinity education.

Now, more than ever, cost may be on your mind as you think about college. At Trinity, we refuse to wait for government efforts to transform financial aid. We lead meaningful, bold change.

  • We’re among a select group of schools in the United States that meets the full, demonstrated need for all students we admit.
  • We’ve created four-year aid awards for low-income students.
  • We’re exploring ways to expand financial support to middle class families.

Our financial aid efforts are an investment in you and a commitment to fostering a diverse and vibrant community.

Like you, we are navigating a rapidly changing environment. In an effort to maintain the health and safety of our community and to help control the spread of Coronavirus-2019, the Office of Financial Aid has suspended all on-campus appointments.

We remain steadfast in our commitment to working with you as you prepare for a Trinity education. Our staff members are available via phone and email to answer your questions. Meet the team.

If you’re not sure whether or not you will qualify for aid, we strongly encourage you to submit documents for financial aid consideration. Recently, the median income for Trinity students receiving aid was $83,000. The process of filing for financial aid can seem daunting, but many families find that the results make a difference in affording college.

We look forward to collaborating with you on your college plans and hope to see you in person when campus re-opens.

Our goal is to remove the anxiety, confusion, and complexity from a process that discourages low-income students from applying to and persisting at institutions of higher education.

Four-Year Financial Aid Program

As part of Trinity's commitment to improving access and affordability in higher education, any student who is Pell-eligible and whose family has an adjusted gross income of $60,000 or less will be presented with a four-year financial aid package, with first-year financial aid accompanied by estimates for future years. This award will outline costs, scholarships, and grants for the entire four years, and remove the barrier of submitting multiple complex financial aid forms each year.
