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. In order to obtain approval, students must submit a plan for their “gap year” through the Gap Year Request Form by the July 1 priority deadline. Should students decide to apply to other colleges during a gap period, they must reapply to Trinity as well. Once the student’s request for deferment is received and approved, a formal letter acknowledging the deferred status will be sent to the student’s home address on file. An essay briefly describing deferral activities and reaffirming intention to enroll at Trinity is required by February 1 of the deferral year. Please direct any questions about deferred enrollment to Assistant Director of Admissions Jason Klem at Jason.Klem@trincoll.edu.
