​Visiting students to Trinity should first read through Information for Visiting Students​ and submit a visiting student application. Visiting Student registration is on a space available basis in remote courses only and you will be contacted with registration information once your visiting student application has been reviewed. ​​

Course Cancellations

Courses may be canceled if they do not meet a minimum enrollment; you will be notified by the week prior to the session start date if the course you selected is canceled. If that occurs, you will be given the option of selecting a replacement course, subject to the availability of seats. If you decide not to take a replacement course, you will receive a full refund and not be assessed the drop fee.

Withdrawing From a Course

You may withdraw from a summer session course and receive a grade of “W” prior to June 4, 2024 for Summer 1 and July 10, 2024 for Summer 2. After this date, you will receive a grade of “F” if you choose not to complete the course; and withdrawing will require petitioning the Academic Affairs Committee for approval.  In order to withdraw from a course, you must notify the Registrar’s Office in writing/by e-mail. A phone call is not accepted as notice to withdraw, and failure to attend the class will not drop you from the course.
