Financial Aid & Employer Benefits
To learn about federal aid, visit the Federal Student Aid website. For information about the availability of student loans, please visit the Financial Aid information page for Graduate Students. Students who enroll in two courses per term in the degree program may be eligible for financial aid. Contact the Trinity College Financial Aid Office for additional information.
Financial aid is not available for the non-degree and certificate programs.
Note that graduate students often pay for their courses through employer tuition waiver programs; ask your employer if they offer a tuition benefits plan.
Students in a degree program can pay tuition bills online through Nelnet Campus Commerce. For Summer Sessions, they can be billed only if they register by May 1 for Session I and June 1 for Session II.
For other students, registration is processed only after payment is made. Checks should be made payable to “The Trustees of Trinity College” and submitted to the Office of Graduate Studies, 300 Summit Street, Hartford, CT 06106.
For complete information about payments and billing, visit this page.
Automatic Payment Plan
Students in a degree program can enroll in an automatic payment plan, allowing them to register early without having to pay the bill at the time of registration. Bills can be paid over the course of a few months. This program, available via e-cashier, charges a $25 per semester nonrefundable fee, without interest. This option is not currently available for Summer Sessions.
Students admitted to Trinity who expect to receive Veterans’ benefits should communicate with their local Veterans Administration Office and request an application for educational benefits. The benefits application process should be initiated at least six weeks prior to the beginning of classes. For additional information, please contact the Registrar’s Office (860) 297-2118.
