Financial Aid

The goal of the financial aid program is to help remove the economic barriers to higher education for all individuals in our community. Trinity College attempts to provide financial assistance for students through scholarships, grants, loans, veteran's certification, and federal work study, or in various combinations. The Financial Aid Office is open Monday through Friday 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. You may also call 309-779-7740 for assistance.


Financial Aid is the available federal, state and /or scholarship funding that a student may receive to be used toward educational expenses. Financial aid is not intended to cover a student's total educational expense. However, it is intended to act as a supplement to the family's contribution to the student's education expenses. Educational expenses are considered the responsibility of the student and, if dependent, their parents. All questions and concerns should be directed to the Financial Aid Specialist in Student Services.
