Because Trinity offers rolling admission, we do not have a set application deadline and you should receive your admissions decision within a few weeks of submitting all required materials.

High school students are encouraged to apply during the first semester of their senior year, as priority for new student scholarships is given to students who are accepted by the scholarship priority deadline of December 1.

Interested in taking courses for credit at Trinity without receiving a degree? Complete the Unclassified Student Application. If you are no longer in high school, transcripts are not necessary.

If an unclassified student decides to work toward a degree, the student must apply for admission as a degree seeking student. Financial aid is not available for unclassified students.

Current high school students that have a cumulative GPA of 3.0 (4 point scale) may enroll as unclassified students and will receive a tuition waiver equal to 50% of their tuition charges (excludes summer semester). Complete the Unclassified Student Application and contact the Admissions Office for more information.
