Other Things to Consider

Choosing Roommates

If you don’t already have a roommate picked out, don’t worry! Trinity makes it easy by pairing you up with a compatible roommate based on your unique personality (all you have to do is fill out a brief survey that you will receive once accepted). Of course, if you do have a roommate already chosen you can always room with them.

Feel free to contact your Admissions Counselor to discuss housing options.

Do you know what you want to study? Do you have no idea? Do you plan on trying a few different classes before deciding? A lot of students take core classes, as well as a combination of general education and major/elective courses during their first semester of college. If you know what you want to study, great! But if you’re unsure, don’t sweat it. Your Admissions Counselor can help you choose and put you in touch with our amazing professors.

Part of the New Student Registration Form asks you for your course preferences. Based on the course preferences you chose on the Registration Form, the Associate Academic Dean will individually review and register you for fall classes.

We can’t always register you for all of the courses you request, but we do our best to put you into courses that you will enjoy. It may be helpful to look at the requirements for your major and/or course descriptions while you are filling out the registration from. These will be available in the most current Academic Catalog.

The Records office will process your course registration and email you a schedule. You will have the opportunity to make changes to your schedule during New Student Orientation.

Registration for Fall 2019 classes will open on June 1st. Your enrollment counselor will contact you regarding the registration for the Fall 2019 semester.


Immunization Record Requirement

These immunizations should be documented on the Immunization Certificate. Records are due two weeks before New Student Orientation.
