Financial Aid Quick Questions

Do you offer financial aid? We offer financial aid to cover 100% of an admitted student’s calculated need.

How many students at Trinity receive financial aid? We have a 39.5 million dollar financial aid budget and almost 40% of our enrolled students receive some form of financial aid.

I am interested in applying early, but I am not sure that I can afford Trinity. Should I still apply early decision? No, if you feel that you need to be able to compare financial aid award packages from multiple schools, then applying early decision would not be the right choice for you.

Do you have merit scholarships?  Whereas the majority of our funds is allocated to need-based financial aid, we do have a limited number of merit scholarships.  All students are considered and there is no additional application.


Please note that the Financial Aid Office is a separate office from the Office of Admissions.  If the student/parent has extensive questions about financial aid at Trinity, encourage them to contact their office directly: 860-297-2046 or

Trinity College’s 22nd President

Trinity College has found a dynamic new leader who is committed to honoring the traditions of Trinity College while focusing on ensuring its relevance and preeminence in the changing liberal arts landscape of the future.  With the selection of Joanne Berger-Sweeney as Trinity’s 22nd president, the Board has found a leader who personifies the value and continued relevance of the College’s commitment to an excellent liberal arts education. An accomplished teacher, scholar, neuroscientist, and administrator at Tufts and at Wellesley, Dr. Berger-Sweeney has demonstrated her ability to be a change agent, making key decisions to further the mission and success of these institutions. With this experience, she is a natural fit for Trinity and Trinity for her. We are excited to have someone of her professional caliber and personal warmth joining the Trinity family.

Welcome to Trinity College Class of 2017 Video

I love when the academic year starts! Personally, I especially love the sounds from the athletic fields that I can hear through my office window. The tempting smells from the Bistro is a welcome (unwelcome?) return as well. Hopefully, our new class enjoys campus as much as I do.  A member of the Admissions team made a welcome video for them. Check it out!

Welcome to Trinity College (CT) Class of 2017!
