Over 98 percent of Trinity students receive financial aid. Learn more.

All students with accepted financial aid in excess of charges billed by the College may request a book voucher from the Business Office in order to purchase books and supplies from the College Bookstore, starting 10 days prior to the start of the term.

Students receiving a Federal Pell Grant can receive a book voucher even if they do not have an anticipated credit balance. Students are advised that any amount of Federal Pell Grant used to purchase books and supplies is no longer available to pay tuition, which in effect increases the student’s balance due to the college.

Students who are convicted of a drug law violation while receiving federal student aid (grants, loans, work-study) may have their eligibility for federal financial aid suspended.  Students who lose their eligibility can regain it early by successfully completing an approved drug rehabilitation program or by passing two unannounced drug tests administered by an approved drug rehabilitation program.  Students who are convicted of a drug-related offense after submitting the FAFSA might lose eligibility for federal student aid, and could be liable for returning any financial aid received during a period of ineligibility.  Information about the College’s programs and policies for the prevention of drug & alcohol abuse are outlined in the Student Handbook.
