Federal aid eligibility for study abroad programs:

  • If you enroll in a study abroad program approved for credit by TIU, those credits can be considered as enrollment in TIU for purposes of applying for federal student aid. To apply for federal aid, a student must submit a FAFSA here. Please contact the TIU Student Financial Services office at [email protected] for additional information.

Student body diversity information for Pell Grants:

If you are selected for “Verification” by FAFSA:

  • Up to 30% of applications are selected at each school by the Department of Education for verification. A student whose FAFSA is selected for this process cannot receive any federal or state aid until the verification is completed. If your FAFSA application is selected for verification by the Department of Education, the Student Financial Services Office will provide you with documents explaining the procedures. View information regarding verification here.

Private (alternative) loan information:

  • View full information of private education loans here
  • A private/alternative loan is a variable-interest, credit-based loan taken out under the student’s name. Depending on a student’s credit history, many students will need a parent co-signature, which could impact the parents’ credit report. This loan type has variable interest rates that could change monthly or quarterly. Most do not have an interest rate cap. Repayment generally begins six months after the student graduates or if the student drops below half-time status. You can read further about private/alternative loan options by visiting the website of the lender of your choice or by checking our list of TIU historical lenders.
  • Self-Certification Forms are generally available from the private/alternative loan lender. They are also available upon request from the TIU Student Financial Services Office.

    Athletic Program

    Equity in Athletics Disclosure Act Survey & Report:

    The Equity in Athletics Disclosure Act (EADA) requires co-educational postsecondary institutions that participate in a Title IV federal student aid program and offer an intercollegiate athletic program to prepare an annual report to the Department of Education on athletic participation, staffing, and revenues and expenses, by men’s and women’s teams. The Department will use this information in preparing its required report to the Congress on gender equity in intercollegiate athletics. EADA is designed to make current and prospective students aware of a school’s commitment to providing equitable athletic opportunities for its men and women students. The Department of Education has provided a website that provides data from thousands of college and universities in a convenient searchable form.

    To access information for our institution, please visit and click on ‘Get Data For One School’, enter ‘Trinity International University – Illinois’ in the Name box and choose ‘Continue’, select ‘Trinity International University – Illinois’ and choose ‘Continue’. Copies of the current EADA Survey and EADA Report are on file in the Athletic Business Office (Meyer Sports Center, Office 109), and are available upon request to students, prospective students, and the public.

    Complaint Resolution

    General procedures:

    • Trinity International University strives to provide a high quality education, consistent with our mission of educating men and women for faithful participation in God’s redemptive work in the world by cultivating academic excellence, Christian fidelity, and lifelong learning. If concerns arise regarding grades, interpretation of policies, and/or other matters, students should follow the appropriate appeal process, as outlined in their school’s catalog (for academic matters) or student handbook. Questions about finances or fees should be addressed to the Student Financial Services office.
    • If a concern cannot be resolved through the aforementioned processes, the student may make a formal complaint to the appropriate Dean’s office. Formal complaints should be addressed in writing, and be dated and signed. If resolution cannot be reached with the dean, the student may choose to submit the formal complaint to the Provost/Chief Academic Officer or the university president. Here is our Formal Student Complaint Policy:
