Financial Aid

We are committed to working with you in order to make your education as affordable as possible.  Applying for aid is both important and easy, where completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), using Trinity’s school code of 001772, is the first step in the process.  The entire process is listed below for those looking to complete the application process for financial aid at Trinity International University.  A financial aid offer will be made once a student is accepted.  You will be surprised how reasonable the cost of your education can be when you find out all of the possibilities.

You will receive notice from the Financial Aid Office through email when your award is ready to be viewed on myTIU.

  • Complete a Direct Master Promissory Note.  If this is the first time you are requesting a Direct Loan while at Trinity, you will need to complete a Master Promissory Note. Please complete this at https://studentloans.gov.
