Students will also need to submit a completed Undergraduate Application for admission by January 1, 2019.
Trinity students will be guaranteed a merit scholarship of at least $14,000 and a Catholic Higher Education Achievement Grant of $3,000 per year.

Trinity students seeking admission to programs with heavy math and/or science requirements, including accounting, biology, computer information science, mathematics, and nursing/other health professions programs must also have earned excellent grades (A's and B’s) in those courses. Due to space limitations, Gwynedd Mercy University cannot guarantee admission to the University’s Occupational Science, Radiation Therapy, Radiologic Technology, Medical Laboratory Science, and Respiratory Care programs, but strongly encourages interested Trinity students to apply for admission.
