In order to allocate resources wisely and fairly, Trinity has engaged the help of the TADS service. We invite families interested in paying a prorated tuition amount to complete a TADS application, which provides a comprehensive need analysis.
The TADS report includes a recommendation of the amount that a family should reasonably contribute toward tuition. The Flexible Tuition Committee keeps these recommendations in mind as it carefully assesses Trinity’s resources and determines the level of award for each family, taking into account each family’s unique financial circumstances.
A family’s financial need does not affect a student’s admission decision, which is made by an Admission Committee and is independent of a flexible tuition decision. The Flexible Tuition Committee communicates decisions about flexible tuition alongside offers of admission.
No faculty members are involved on the Flexible Tuition Committee, and they do not know which students in their class receive flexible tuition awards.
