Trinity University First Year applicants are defined as students enrolled in their final year of high school or students who have completed high school and not yet enrolled in college. When the Trinity University Admissions Committee evaluates candidates, four main areas are assessed: academic record, essay, extracurricular activities, and recommendations from guidance counselors and teachers. Submission of standardized test scores is optional. Trinity will continue to review and consider test scores for those applicants who want to submit them, but any applicant can also choose to be evaluated only on high school grades, curriculum rigor, essays, recommendation letters, achievements, interviews, and contributions to their school and community.
Trinity University Transfer applicants are defined as students who have completed at least 12 credit hours of full-time or part time college work post high school graduation. Typically, in order to be considered competitive for admission, students should have at least a 3.0 in full-time college coursework. Transfer applicants must submit a final official high school transcript, SAT or ACT test scores (or TOEFL, IELTS, or Duolingo for international students), and an official college transcript, plus instructor evaluation, registrar’s report, and mid-year report (if applicable).
One of the best ways to determine if Trinity is the right school for you is to visit our campus when you are able to do so. Noted for red brick buildings, native live oaks, beautiful grounds, and sparkling fountains, Trinity University encompasses 125 acres overlooking downtown San Antonio. There's nothing like being on campus, but until you can visit, taking a virtual tour is a close second!
We invite you to experience our campus via a virtual information session, which are hosted by an admissions counselor and offered weekly. Check gotu.us/visit often for new ways to engage with our community and learn about the many opportunities available to students who study and live at Trinity University.
Trinity University seeks students of intellectual promise who have demonstrated a distinguished academic record throughout their secondary school career. In our holistic application review process, we consider all aspects of an applicant’s candidacy, as we strive to attract students who will engage, serve, inspire, and influence within our cohesive community and beyond our campus.
