Federal Student Aid (FAFSA)


As part of applying for financial aid at Trinity, you must submit a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). You can fill out your FAFSA online by leaving this site and going to the U.S. Department of Education web site. The address is www.fafsa.ed.gov.

If you don't already have a PIN, apply for one now at www.pin.ed.gov. You'll need a PIN to electronically sign your FAFSA. Your PIN is confidential and should not be shared with anyone. The Financial Aid office prefers you file your federal taxes first so that you may access them with the FAFSA data retrieval tool.

There is no cost to apply for federal student aid, and free help is available. If you need help completing your application, click the "CHAT" link on any screen to chat online with a Customer Service Representative, or Call 1-800-4-FED-AID to speak to a Customer Service Representative. Once you've completed your application, review your answers carefully and, if necessary, correct them before submitting your FAFSA. Sign your FAFSA. You can sign electronically with your PIN, print a paper signature page to sign and mail in, or wait for a signature page to arrive in the mail. Submit your application by selecting the "Submit my FAFSA now" button on the very last page of the form. Once you submit your application, you'll be taken to a Confirmation Page that shows your confirmation number and estimated Expected Family Contribution (EFC). Your school will use your EFC to determine the types and amounts of aid you're eligible to receive. Print a copy of the Confirmation Page for your records.
