My Course Information
With the exception of the non-credit courses (Praxis test preparation, health training), all courses are worth 3 hours of graduate credit.
Classes are held on Trinity’s campus in Northeast Washington, DC, Elizabeth Seton High School in Bladensburg, MD, and Parkdale High School in Riverdale, MD. Visit our directions page for more information.
We do not provide adjunct faculty’s information to students prior to the first day of class. Our Adjunct faculty work on a contract basis and begin working at the start of each course. They will provide contact information at the beginning of the first class meeting.
You will need a parking permit to park on Trinity’s campus. As of Fall 2013, parking permits are free. All students who register for a course at Trinity will receive a parking permit from their instructor on the first day of class. A permit is not required for parking at our off-site locations.
No. Trinity degree programs have a set curriculum of courses that are not offered through the Office of Continuing Education. In rare cases, students who need to meet general education prerequisites are able to take Continuing Education courses to meet these requirements; however, students wishing to use these credits for their degree program should get approval from their advisor prior to registering to ensure the Continuing Education course will meet their curriculum requirement.
The Office of Continuing Education does not offer degree completion programs, therefore, they do not offer academic advising. To be sure that you are taking the classes that you need to meet your certification requirements, please contact the staff development or certification office in the county or district where you wish to certify.

The letter must state the total amount that your employer is responsible for paying. If you are paying a portion of your tuition, you must pay your portion upon registration. Your grade will not be released until Trinity has received payment from your employer. If your employer does not pay before the start of the next semester, your signature on the registration form indicates your responsibility to pay for the course. Students that will be submitting a billing authorization letter must submit a paper registration
