Step 1: Complete an Admissions Application
   • 
Visit Triton’s website to complete our fast and free online application.
 
   Note: You should receive an acceptance packet within 7-10 days after submitting your application.
 
Step 2: Apply for Financial Aid (if desired)
   • 
Many students seek outside funding to help pay for school with Financial Aid. Apply online at www.fafsa.gov and be certain to enter Triton’s school code: 001773. Begin as early as possible after Oct. 1 to maximize your aid opportunities. Learn more at www.fafsa.gov.
 
Step 3: Submit Official Transcripts and Documents
   • 
All documents should be dropped off in the Admissions and Records Office, Room B-110, or mailed from your school. You may also submit official college transcripts and ACT scores, if applicable, to be evaluated. Contact Admissions to request an evaluation.
 
Step 4: Take Placement Test (or Submit Waiver) and Complete Success Navigator
   • 

Testing is mandatory for all new students enrolling in credit courses. You may be eligible for a placement test waiver based on your ACT/SAT/AP/IB scores, Seal of Biliteracy in English, or completion of college level English/Math courses with a “C” or better.

Learn more about test preparation and waivers at www.triton.edu/placementtesting.

Note: You must have your scores or transcripts (unofficial documents sufficient) evaluated by a counselor in order to be granted a placement test waiver.

 
Step 5: Complete New Student Orientation/Destination Success
   • 
This mandatory step can be completed online, but it is encouraged you come to an in-person session. Visit www.triton.edu/destinationsuccess for more information and available sessions.
 
Step 6: Register for Classes
   • 
Classes fill quickly, so it is important to register early for the best selection of courses and class meeting times. If you completed orientation online, you must meet with a counselor to register for class. Otherwise, you have the option of registering online via MyTriton Portal, at our Welcome Center or over the phone by calling (708) 456-0300, Ext. 3130.
 
Step 7: Make Payment Arrangements
   • 
Payments can be made at the Cashier’s Office (Room A-202) or in the main hall of the Student Center
   • 
Payment options:
   •

   • 
FACTS Tuition Payment Plan (via MyTriton Portal)
   •

   •
