Applying for Federal Financial Aid:

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 before receiving an admission decision. This will ensure that our financial aid team will have ample time to work with you each step of the way.

Your financial aid is based on the number of new credits you take each semester. When completing the Graduate Federal Loan Information Sheet, try to anticipate the total number of new credits you will take in both the fall and spring semesters.

You must be registered for at least two new credits per semester (the equivalent of half-time status—see chart below) to be eligible for federal loans.

Less than half-time ​1-1.75 credits
Half-time 2-2.75 credits
​Full-time ​3 or more credits

Once Trinity has determined your “calculated need,” we will meet your need with a combination of Federal Loan funding. The amounts and types of loans combined to meet your needs are known as your Financial Aid Package.
