#5Academic Advising

Trinity University’s Academic Advising Center is committed to a holistic and developmental advising model focused on your personal and academic curiosity, growth, and success. Early in the summer, you will be assigned a discipline-specific professional academic advisor who will help you get acclimated to your new campus, review general university requirements, Pathways’ curriculum requirements, preliminary major/minor degree requirements, the course bulletin, and the class schedule. Your academic advisor will also teach you how to navigate Trinity’s automated student system and our registration process. Additionally, together you will explore course options and will build your fall course schedule in preparation for registration.

Ultimately, your academic advisor will work closely with you to facilitate your seamless journey to graduation during your first few semesters at Trinity until you declare your major (at which point you will be assigned to a major-specific faculty advisor). For questions, please don’t hesitate to reach out to the Advising Coordinator in the Office of Academic Affairs, Dr. Lapetra Bowman, at lbowman@trinity.edu.

#3Prepare for your student visa

After you submit your deposit, you’ll receive an email from International Student and Scholar Services (ISSS) with instructions for securing your immigration status/visa in order to attend Trinity University.

If your intention is to attend Trinity University on F-1 visa/status, then Trinity University ISSS will need to issue you a Form I-20, Certificate of Eligibility for Nonimmigrant Student Status. In order to start this process, ISSS requires the following:

1. A new and completed Trinity International Student Financial Certification Form, with supporting financial documentation (bank statements, etc.). This form is separate from any financial documents you have previously submitted to the Office of Admissions.

2. A scan or photocopy of your current passport

Please return the completed Financial Certification form and all materials requested to ISSS.

International students who are not intending to attend Trinity University on F-1 visa/status and therefore will not require a Form I-20 do not need to provide any financial information to our office. Instead, you must provide copies or scans of all your current immigration information, including your passport ID page, current visa, electronic I-94, and Notice of Action.
