Admissions

      

Located on the beautiful Gulf Coast, Trinity College of Florida remains a premier institution for Biblical higher education.  Trinity College students are equipped to serve the Lord as they study under professors who integrate a Biblical perspective into each course.  The Word of God stands at the core of all training and instruction. 

BIBLICAL.

Deeply rooted in gospel-centered teaching, Trinity College is dedicated to equipping students to rightly handle the Word of God.   Earn your Bachelor of Arts in areas such as Church Ministry, Theology, Business, Elementary Education, Counseling, Psychology, or General Studies.  An education at Trinity College will equip you to begin your career with confidence that you have been well-prepared academically, spiritually, intellectually, and professionally. 

TRANSFORMATIONAL.

The experience at Trinity College of Florida is life-changing.  Whether you’re building friendships in the residence hall, engaging in challenging Biblical texts in the classroom, or traveling with one of our ministry teams – you will experience personal and spiritual growth.  As a student you will have various opportunities such as participating in NCCAA DII athletics, joining a student group, or being a part of the worship ministry team.  These outside-the-classroom opportunities will prove to be an exciting part of the Trinity College experience. 

RELATIONAL.

The low student-to-professor ratio (9:1) will allow you to receive the one-on-one attention you deserve from experienced professors.  Trinity College of Florida is a place where students and faculty form a strong community, extending beyond the classroom.  It’s a place where numbers don’t replace names and everyone is valued.  It’s a place where life-long friendships are forged and a foundation on God’s Word is laid.  It’s a place where lives are changed and the world is changed as a result. 

We seek applications from students who are personally committed to Jesus Christ and express a desire to study in a Christian college environment.  Prospective students should show potential for academic success and evidence of outstanding Christian character.

The Admissions Office is dedicated to helping students and parents navigate through the complex and often daunting process of entering college. From application to new student orientation, our admissions counselors walk each student through the admission process while maintaining regular contact to answer questions, offer encouragement, and help in any way possible.
