Program Information


Requirements for admission to early childhood (EC) degree program. Include admission requirements

Candidates for admission should complete a secondary school program that includes 16 academic units from among the basic academic disciplines: English, history, second language, mathematics (algebra, geometry, and trigonometry), science (biology, chemistry, and physics), and social science. Beyond meeting the requirements for high school graduation, academic areas of special interest or importance should be pursued in greater depth.

Trinity strongly recommends (although does not require) that every candidate for admission as first-year student take either the Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT I) or the American College Testing Assessment (ACT). Trinity reserves the right to request the results of additional achievement tests if deemed necessary.
