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

That means we refuse to wait for national or government efforts to transform financial aid; we lead meaningful, bold change.

We’ve created four-year aid awards for low-income students, and our financial aid program is among the most generous in the country: we meet the full calculated financial need of all accepted financial aid applicants, and we continue to increase both the amount of aid provided and the percentage of students receiving aid.

As we continue to advance our financial aid program to ensure Trinity is accessible for all, we remain equally focused on providing a relevant, valuable, and sustaining education that doesn’t lead to heavy post-graduation loan payments.

Thank you for your interest in Trinity College. The health and well-being of our community members and prospective students is of paramount importance to us. In an effort to protect our community, and to help control the potential spread of Coronavirus-2019 (COVID-19), the Offices of Admission and Financial Aid have suspended all on-campus tours, information sessions, admitted student events, and walk-in appointments effective March 14, 2020.

We understand that this news may come at a critical time in your college search process. Our website, campus map, Instagram channel @TrinityCollege, and student blog are all great resources to help you navigate and explore the Trinity community.  Please know that our team is prepared and excited to connect with you in other ways too; our admissions counselors, financial aid staff, and student admissions staff members are available via phone, email, and video chat to answer your questions. Meet our team.

We look forward to meeting you in person when we resume campus visits.

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.
