More than ever, college affordability plays an essential role in a student’s decision to attend colleges and universities. Trinity College is committed to ensuring students receive robust financial assistance through the generosity of our need based and merit based programs. We appreciate the sacrifices students and families will need to make in order to invest in a Trinity education. It is our belief that our investment in you will foster a more diverse and vibrant Trinity community.

  • We are among a highly selective group of schools in the United States that meets the full, demonstrated need for our admitted students.
  • We have established four-year aid awards for our low-income students.
  • We continue to strategize new ways to expand financial support to our middle class families.

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.

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.

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