Online Program Admissions

Admissions Requirements – Online Undergraduate Programs

Trinity offers four majors completely online. These programs allow students to complete a Trinity degree with a convenient online delivery.

Admission to Trinity online programs is available to those who have met the following requirements:

  • Proof of high school graduation or GED certification (i.e. an official high school or GED transcript)
  • High school grade point average of 2.5 or GED score of 165 or higher in all four subject tests. (Those with high school grade point averages of 2.0 to 2.49, or GED scores of 145 - 164 in one or more of the subjects, may be admitted on academic probation.)
  • If applicable, official transcripts from all previous college/university study indicating an overall cumulative grade point average of 2.0 (using 4.0 scale)

Applicants who do not fully meet the admissions requirements are considered if there are factors that point to probable success. Additional materials may be requested.

Confirming your admission

If you are offered admission, confirmation of your acceptance of admission is required. A $125 enrollment deposit fee, payable to Trinity International University, must be received to confirm your acceptance of admission and intent to register. Deposit is applied to a student account during the first semester of enrollment. Deposits are fully refundable if Admissions receives notification of cancellation by two weeks before the start date of the session subterm for which the student applied. You can submit your enrollment deposit in your application status portal.

Writing Placement 

The Online Undergraduate program is writing-intensive. Students are expected to achieve a level of writing competence early in their Trinity experience to excel in their studies. In an effort to ensure the success of all students, a computerized writing evaluation will be administered by The Thrive Testing Center for students who do not meet all of the following criteria: 

  • Have 15 or more college credits (technical credits are not considered in meeting this
  • Have been enrolled in school within the last five years
  • Have a cumulative GPA of at least 2.5 from previous college work
  • Have completed English Composition 1 and 2, or the relevant equivalents, achieving a
    minimum grade of B-

The results of the writing assessment will determine what, if any, writing course(s) students will be required to complete with a “C” or better within the first 24 credits of the Online program. If students have met all their writing general education requirements and achieve a satisfactory score on the assessment, no further writing courses will be required. If, however, the score is below the determined level on the assessment, students will be required to take the course(s) most appropriate to their level, regardless of whether all general education requirements have been met.
