A college education of Trinity's quality is an invaluable, yet significant investment. The dedicated staff of Student Financial Services is committed to working in partnership with students and families in navigating the financial aid process.
Typical college costs include tuition, fees, living expenses, books and supplies, as well as personal and transportation costs. At Trinity University the Cost of Attendance (COA), or the estimated budget, reflects the costs associated with enrollment at Trinity in a given year.
The tuition charge incurred by students and families is 36% less than the true cost of tuition thanks to Trinity’s endowments and giving from alumni and friends. Trinity’s tuition is banded, which means that all students pay the same rate and are able to enroll in 12-18 hours each semester without incurring an additional tuition charge.
Trinity is a residential campus, and students are required to live on-campus and carry a meal plan through the junior year.
In order to provide a seamless data experience, students are charged a technology fee each semester as well as a student activity fee. Any other fees, such as a parking permit or yearbook, are elective.
An allowance for these expenses is added to tuition, fees, and the standard residence hall room and meal plan charges to establish the cost of attendance.
