While academic preparation and performance are the most important factors, Trinity also weighs class rank (if reported), standardized test scores, writing, recommendations, contributions to school and community, special talents, and demonstrated interest.

What is the difference between a preview program like Trinity In Focus and an individual campus visit? (BACK TO TOP)
Attendees of Trinity's two Saturday preview programs, Trinity In Focus (for all prospective students) and Trinity 360° (for admitted undergraduates), get a comprehensive one-day look at the University and all it offers. They have the opportunity to meet with current students, faculty, and admissions representatives and can choose from an assortment of informational sessions, specialty tours, and sample classes. There are five Trinity In Focus and two Trinity 360° programs offered annually, always on Saturdays.
Students can make individual campus visits on nearly any Monday through Saturday. Visitors can tour campus and attend an information session year-round. Additional options are offered during the school year, including attending a class or meeting with a professor or coach. Details are available on the Visit Options page.
How do I register for a campus visit? (BACK TO TOP)
Reservations should be made two-weeks in advance, in order to best accommodate your requests. They can be scheduled online using the Visit Calendar & Registration page or by calling 1-800-TRINITY. You may wish to first determine the activities that best suit your needs on the Visit Options web page, then select the date that works best for you and go to our Visit Calendar and Registration page. Click on the date you'd like to visit and fill out the form. You'll receive a confirmation email letting you know we've received your campus visit request.
Are there different options to choose from during a visit? (BACK TO TOP)
Yes, there are a myriad of different sessions and activities to choose from both during preview programs and individual visits. For details see the Visit Options page.
Can I stay overnight on the Trinity campus? (BACK TO TOP)
During the academic year (approximately September through April) a limited number of spaces are available for senior prospective students to stay on campus on Friday or Saturday nights during preview programs or Monday through Thursday during individual visits. These spaces are available on a first come, first served basis.
What do I wear, and do I need to bring anything? (BACK TO TOP)
Dress comfortably and wear walking shoes if you are going on a tour. There is no charge for campus visits, but you may want to bring money to purchase goods at the bookstore or for snacks. Lunch is included during Trinity In Focus and Trinity 360° programs, and for some individual visits.
Can I audition for a music scholarship while I'm on campus? (BACK TO TOP)
Yes! Auditions are available during all Trinity In Focus programs and some individual visits when the audition is scheduled directly with the Music Department.
Can I meet individually with an admissions counselor? (BACK TO TOP)
While Trinity does not require interviews for admission, we do offer (on a first come, first served basis) individual appointments for seniors, and occasionally juniors, with an admissions counselor. This is a way for us to get to know you better, and is an open dialogue session to allow prospective students to ask questions and learn more about Trinity's academic and social opportunities. Unfortunately, we are unable to accommodate individual appointments on preview program days. However, admissions counselors will be available throughout the programs to answer questions.
Are the Trinity 360° programs for admitted students different from the Trinity In Focus Saturdays? (BACK TO TOP)
Yes! While there are some similar sessions, most of the program is unique and alternatives are provided for any repeated activities. Parents and students attend different sessions for most of the day, and students have the opportunity to get to know some of their future classmates. Program topics may include:
- Academic Faculty Advising - Find out about academic advising and how Trinity assists students in course selection and registration
- Residential Life - Everything you need to know about your student living on campus
- Outcomes - Learn from faculty what students do after Trinity
- Sample Classes - Try out a class from such departments as philosophy, history, or business administration.
- Reflecting on the First Year - Hear from first year students what to expect during the transition to college life.
- 10 Different Extracurricular Panels - Talk with current students about the activities you want to do...volunteering, performing arts, intramurals, multicultural organizations, and Greek life...just to name a few.
- All these in addition to some of the popular sessions offered at the other TIF programs.
