We encourage our students to anticipate an estimated $200 for books and supplies for each course; an average of $600 per semester. These costs are estimated as book lists differ for each class. For tips and tricks to save money on your books, contact your admissions counselor.
The Net Price Calculator is intended to provide estimated net price information to prospective first-time freshman undergraduate students who will be enrolled full-time in a degree-seeking program at Trinity.
