Work with an enrollment guide to determine how much institutional aid you can receive.
4 Pay Reservation Deposit
The reservation deposit is a $150 investment that reserves the following for NEW students:
  1. Scholarship Package: Because institutional aid is limited, the only way to reserve an institutional scholarship package after institutional aid is offered by the college is with the reservation deposit. Without the reservation deposit, funds from the scholarship package may be transferred to another student.
  2. Dorm Room: Students who pay the reservation deposit are guaranteed a room for the upcoming semester (on a first come first serve basis).
  3. Waiver of Payment Plan Fee: Trinity offers both 4 month and 5 month payment plans. To take advantage of these plans, Students are charged an additional $50.00. Should a student pay a reservation deposit, this fee is waived.

The reservation deposit is non-refundable for accepted students, but is applied towards the student’s account and subtracted from monies owed to the institution. Should the student receive scholarships and grants other that institutional aid and in excess of monies required, that student shall receive a refund in the appropriate amount of excess monies.
