Why Choose Trinity?
More Individual Support
Trinity keeps class sizes small: your professors know your name and work with you individually on any challenges.
Trinity’s tuition is the lowest among private schools in the area, and financial aid options, lower costs even further. Many DC residents pay nothing out-of-pocket!
Our beautiful campus is five minutes away from all the opportunities offered in downtown Washington, DC, like top-notch internships and fun things to do.
Simple Transfer Requirements
