When applying for an off-campus program, you must remember that there are two applications with two separate deadline dates.
By DECEMBER 1 of the year PRIOR to your attendance in the program, you must file a pre-application form with the office of Off-Campus Programs. The purpose of this pre-application is to assure that you will be approved to receive the financial aid that is applicable to that specific program.
For example, if you intend to go to an off-campus program in fall 2014 or spring 2015, you must file a pre-application by December 1, 2013.
After pre-applications are approved, which typically occurs within one month after the December 1 deadline, students are given clearance to apply to the relevant program. Deadlines for this “second” program application vary by program, so consult the website for precise dates.
Participation in off-campus programs is only permitted by approval of Trinity. The minimum grade point average (GPA) required to apply is 2.50. For students to receive any institutional financial aid for endorsed programs, they must have a minimum GPA of 3.00. Additional GPA requirements may apply in specific programs. Consult their websites for more information.
To be eligible for any financial aid, you must complete a pre-application by DECEMBER 1 of the academic year prior to the academic year of attendance in the program.
See Costs & Financial Aid for important information about the parameters for eligible financial aid.
