Message Regarding Electronic Student Financial Responsibility Form
Written by Webmaster   
Monday, 31 March 2014

As part of the College’s ongoing efforts toward good stewardship we’re replacing the paper-based student financial responsibility agreement form with an electronically completed form. The completed form is not a new requirement, just a new way of collecting the completed form.

Rather than signing a paper document students will execute the electronic form maintained on the student portal. This will be required before they can register for courses for SU-14 and FA-14. If a student attempts to register before accepting the agreement, an alert will appear and state, “’Financial Hold – Agreement – You must accept the Student Financial Responsibility Agreement before registering. The agreement is found on the left side of this page in the ‘My Student Life’ section.” 

Although the form is not new, there is a new type of financial hold called the Financial Hold—Agreement. It only prevents registration. If a student has a financial agreement hold they will just need to accept the agreement before registering for courses.

The other type of financial hold, Financial Hold—Balance, will continue to be used, but only when the student has a past due balance. If a student has a financial balance hold, they should contact the Business Office to resolve the past due balance.

The use of the electronic form will be phased in. Initially it will apply only to continuing, traditional students. After it is determined that the electronic form is functioning as intended, it will also be applied to continuing students in Adult Studies and in Graduate Studies, and finally for incoming students of all types.

The student financial responsibility agreement is currently available on the Student Portal. Students can review and accept the agreement at any time before they wish to register.

2014-15 Academic Year Tuition Information
Written by President's Office   
Monday, 17 February 2014
Trinity is committed to offering quality education, which includes annual improvements that enhance the learning experience. During the last two years, students have experienced a variety of new benefits at Trinity, including improved facilities, such as the renovation of residence lounge spaces, computer upgrades or replacements, a state-of-the-art nursing lab; increased student activities and other events; and improvements to and the development of new academic programs. This coming year, we plan on increasing student wages.    
Between 2011-12 and 2012-13, the tuition increase remained the same at 3.9% and was lowered slightly for the 2013-14 academic year to 3.8%. Yet, increases do become necessary to maintain current benefits and provide additional services. In light of this, the tuition for the 2014-15 academic year will increase by 4.5%, which is $ 1,080. A similar percentage increase of 4.5% is also planned for room and board, relative to the meal plan choice.
We believe that Trinity’s increases are in line with increases at similar colleges. Over the past few years, our increases have been modest in comparison to most schools. Trinity remains dedicated to preparing our students for careers and callings of significance.
