Admitted Students

Congratulations & Welcome To Trinity!

The Office of International Students and Scholars (OISS) along with the international students and entire college community, want to congratulate you on your admission to Trinity. You made a great choice and we look forward to you joining and contributing to our global city here at Trinity! We hope that this website will help you navigate through the initial process of obtaining a U.S. visa, arriving here on campus, and any questions you may have during the academic year. 

The arrival date for international students in the Class of 2023 (the year of Trinity's bicentennial!) and exchange students for the 2019-2020 Academic Year is Wednesday, August 21, 2019.  We will organize a shuttle for students from John F. Kennedy International Airport in New York to Trinity's Campus on this day. We ask that students book their flights to arrive before 2 pm to allow time to go through Customs and Immigration in a timely manner and be able to catch the shuttle to campus. International Student Orientation will be held on Thursday and Friday, August 22 and 23. We will also hold an orientation for parents on Thursday, August 22.  Please note that International Student Orientation is mandatory for all new incoming international students. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact the International Student Advisor at We are looking forward to meeting you!
