Policy: Deposits & Refunds

Reservation Deposits for College of Arts and Sciences Students

Upon acceptance to Trinity, Weekday students who wish to enroll must make a confirmation deposit.

For residential students, the total deposit is $200, $100 of which is applied toward tuition charges. The remaining $100 is a damage deposit to be refunded less damage fees or other charges when the residence hall is vacated. For commuter students not living in a Trinity residence hall, the deposit is $100, which is applied toward tuition charges.

Accepted students who intend to enroll should pay the confirmation deposit by May 1. After May 1 the deposit is not refundable. Students admitted after May 1 should make the confirmation deposit within two weeks of admission.

Tuition Refund Policy

Tuition, fees, and room and board charges will be refunded according to the schedule below.

Within the schedule adjustment period: 100%
After the schedule adjustment period: No refund

Room charges are incurred in full each semester once the room is occupied. For a student who withdraws from all classes, board charges will be refunded on a prorated schedule depending on the number of weeks on the board plan. Changes in the board plan will not be accepted after the last day to reschedule courses. The Academic Calendar lists specific deadlines each semester.

The effective date of withdrawal is the date on which the Office of the Registrar receives written notice. No refunds will be made prior to the end of the add/drop period each semester.

Financial aid recipients (including those receiving Federal Student Loans) who drop or withdraw from all classes are subject to refund requirements set out in federal regulations, which may differ from the schedules set out above. (See also Federal Refund/Repayment Requirement When a Student Withdraws).

Students receiving financial aid should contact the Office of Student Financial Services to determine how a withdrawal affects their financial aid eligibility. Trinity grants and scholarships are not refundable to the parent or student.

If applicable, refunds will be made payable to the party responsible for the student’s account. Requests for exceptions to this policy must be made in writing by the responsible party.

Refunds and Financial Aid

Financial aid recipients (including those receiving Federal Student Loans) who drop all classes are subject to refund requirements set out in federal regulations, which may differ from the schedules set out above.

Students receiving financial aid should contact the Office of Student Financial Services to determine how a withdrawal affects their financial aid eligibility. Private grants and scholarships are not refundable to the parent or student.

Students who have borrowed from the Stafford Undergraduate Student Loan Program will return to the lender(s) any portion of the refund allocatable to the loan(s). Remaining refund amounts will be returned to student aid programs rather than to the student or parent.

If applicable, refunds will be made payable to the party responsible for the student’s account. Requests for exceptions to this policy must be made in writing by the responsible party.
