Trinity College is a member of the Tuition Exchange, Inc., a consortium of over 660 colleges and universities that offer scholarships to the dependents of eligible employees at member institutions.

As a member of the consortium, Trinity has agreed to maintain a balance between the number of dependent students certified for participation in the program (“exports”) and the number of Tuition Exchange (TE) Scholarships awarded to admitted Trinity students certified by other member institutions (“imports”).

In some instances, students are selected for verification. We utilize a third party company called Inceptia. Our partnership with Inceptia is beneficial to our students and families as the verification process can be completed fully online. Families selected for verification will be notified by our office and introduced to our partners at Inceptia for next steps.

Verification Policy

On occasion, students who were admitted to Trinity without institutional grant assistance inquire if they may apply for financial aid in a subsequent year. In light of the College’s commitment to continue to meet the calculated needs of students receiving institutional aid, it is unlikely that resources will be available for enrolled students not currently receiving institutional funds. Students are encouraged, however, to apply for all federal and state financial aid for which they may be eligible to receive. Enrolled students who do wish to submit a first-time application for institutional aid should meet with a financial aid administrator to discuss the application process and to review the list of required documents. All applicants must adhere to our published deadline.
