2021 Summer Session II Frequently Asked Questions

Will the summer classes be held over Zoom? I am not in the same time zone as Trinity and it may be difficult for me.

Summer session II courses will be offered as either in-person or via remote instruction. Refer to the course schedule for mode of instruction. What remote courses will look like may vary by course/professor. Some courses may be taught synchronously/live via Zoom, but we understand that this could be challenging for students who are in many different time zones across the world. You should contact the professor for course(s) you are interested in and see what the expectations are.

What is the tuition for summer classes?

Summer session II course tuition is not included as part of your combined 2021 spring and summer session I bill. Summer session II course tuition is $2,955 per course credit and $700 for an exploratory internship, for internships added after the May 27, 2021 internship deadline. For more information about internships for credit please visit: Earning Academic Credit for an internship.

In 2021, there are no registration or application fees.

Is Financial Aid available for summer courses?

Trinity College students who receive financial aid during the academic year (fall and/or spring) may be eligible for grant support for summer courses. Please contact us via email Financial Aid Office or via phone at 860-297-2046 for further information.

How do I register for a summer course?

Registration for summer courses is available on TCOnline.

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 and you will be contacted with registration information once your visiting student application has been reviewed.

How many courses can I take at Trinity during the summer sessions?

Students may enroll in a maximum of two courses per summer session. All summer session II courses must be taken for a grade, not on a pass/fail basis.

What is the last date students can register for summer session II courses?

Students can enroll in summer session II courses through the end of the add/drop period, on Wednesday, July 7, 2021.

Can I take online courses at another college/university this summer for transfer credit to Trinity?

Yes. In order to transfer an in-person course from another institution, the student should submit an Application for Transfer Credit through the Registrar’s Office and will need a statement of support from the associated Department Chair. Additionally, in the situation that a summer course is needed to stay on time for graduation AND that the course is not being offered by Trinity in summer 2021, students may submit an Application for Transfer Credit and petition the Curriculum Committee to count a remote learning course at an alternate, accredited institution toward the requirements for graduation and/or the major.

For both in-person and remote transfer courses, it is highly recommended that students submit an Application for Transfer Credit and wait to be notified of approval by the Registrar’s Office prior to any final registration.
