Is it possible to defer enrollment to Trinity College for one year if I am admitted?
Yes, each year a number of students request a deferred enrollment and receive approval. In order to secure enrollment, the non-refundable $500 admission deposit must first be paid. Upon approval, Trinity will grant deferred admission for one year. In order to obtain approval, applicants must submit a plan for their “gap year.” Deferred enrollment requests must be submitted in writing (letter or email) to Anthony T. Berry, Director of Admissions, at Anthony.Berry@trincoll.edu by June 1. Should you decide to apply to other colleges during your gap period, you must reapply to Trinity as well. Once the student’s request for deferment is received and approved, a formal letter acknowledging their deferred status will be sent to the student’s home address on file. An essay briefly describing deferral activities is required by February 1 of the deferral year.
