General Recommendations & Requirements for Admissions
Trinity College applicants are reviewed based on personal character and community involvement as well as academic achievement. High school transcripts should reflect satisfactory completion of at least four years of English, three years of foreign language, two years of laboratory science, history and algebra, and one year of geometry.
You will also need to submit three letters of recommendation. One should come from your high school counselor. The other two should come from teachers who instructed you during the final two years of high school. Students are no longer required to submit ACT or SAT scores, but you may do so if you believe your scores will improve your chance of acceptance.
