Applying for Financial Aid

The application process for financial aid can seem overwhelming and confusing. We are here to guide and support you through the necessary forms so to maximize your aid eligibility.

Applying for financial aid and applying to college happen concurrently. Timing is critical, as deadlines are fast approaching. We ask that you submit our required financial assistance forms prior to receiving an admission decision. This will ensure that we have ample time to work with you each step of the way.

Required Steps for Domestic Graduate Aid Applicants

If you are not certain whether or not you will apply for financial aid, it is best to indicate that you will be applying for aid on your admission application.

The FAFSA becomes available each year on October 1st. Our school code is 001414. Submitting the FAFSA enables us to evaluate your federal aid eligibility. At the graduate level, this is limited to Federal Unsubsidized Student Loans.

Whenever possible, we encourage you to use the IRS Data Retrieval Tool when completing the FAFSA. This tool allows information to be electronically entered into the form from the IRS on your behalf. It also shortens the amount of time it will take to complete the application.

The FAFSA form is a required annual application for student aid recipients at Trinity. 

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.
