Cost of Credits Beyond the Standard Course Load

For 2019-2020, $28,190 is charged for full-time study per semester, which is defined as 3.0 to 5.75 course credits per term. Since standard course credits carried per term are 4.5, the College allows for 1.25 additional course credits to be carried without charge. Students who register for 6.0 course credits are charged an additional $6,264. For enrollment over 6.0 course credit please contact

Part-Time Study

Students approved for and enrolled in less than three (3) course credits per term will be billed $18,793 per term, which represents 2/3 of full tuition. Written notification of approval of part-time study by the Dean of Students must be submitted to the Office of Student Accounts.

Repeat Courses

A fee of $6,264 per credit will be charged for each repeated course if that course brings the student’s course credit hours over the 5.75 limit.

Study Away Fees

A study away fee is charged by the College whenever a student attends a program that is not administered by the College. The fee for Affiliated programs is $1000 for one semester and $1200 for a full year or two consecutive semesters. The fee for non-Affiliated programs is $3500 for one semester or $4000 for a full year or two consecutive semesters. The fee is charged through the regular college billing process and is charged to cover the administrative cost incurred by Trinity throughout the study away process.

Residential Life Cancellation Fee

In order to ensure that students who select rooms in the housing lottery have the intention of residing in those rooms, the Office of Residential Life has instituted a room cancellation fee policy. This policy allows the College to better manage occupancy and vacancy issues and provides students on the housing waiting list a realistic estimate of whether or not housing will become available.

The cancellation deadline is 4:00 pm. on April 30, 2017 to withdraw without penalty. Any student who withdraws from housing after this date will be assessed the following fee:

  • If withdrawal occurs between April 1, 2019 and June 30, 2019, the cancellation fee is $500
  • If withdrawal occurs between July 1st, 2019 and July 31, 2019, the cancellation fee is $750
  • If withdrawal occurs after July 31, 2019, the cancellation fee is $1000

These fees will be charged to your student account.
