Trinity Student Information

  • As Capital University and Trinity Lutheran Seminary continue integrating operations, our student experience remains at the center of our decision-making. We’ve established the Student Experience Integration Team to support all students and ensure the best possible learning and living experience throughout this transition, and into the future. The team includes members of all the functional areas of both institutions, with particular focus on student-facing offices. It meets on a weekly basis.

    As the team establishes new, integrated processes to serve all students, we will share the information on this page by providing answers to frequently asked questions. As always, if you have a question that’s not addressed here, please send it to integration@capital.edu, and the team’s co-chairs, Susan Kannenwischer, assistant vice president for enrollment services (Capital); Jennie Smith, dean of students (Capital); and Kayla Aspeslagh, national recruiter (Trinity), will respond directly.

    Have questions?

    As Capital University and Trinity Lutheran Seminary make plans to reunite, this Q&A can help explain the institutions' commitment to a renewed connection and shared mission.

    Feedback Welcome

    Your feedback matters. Inquiries and general feedback about the Reunion should be respectfully submitted to integration@capital.edu. Thank you!

      E-mail Communication
      Trinity students will now have both a TLSOhio.edu and a Capital.edu e-mail address. We will be providing instructions on how to set up mail forwarding so that any messages sent to the Capital e-mail address can automatically go to the Trinity e-mail account. This will minimize the number of accounts students have to check leading up to January when all e-mail will be switched to your Capital.edu account.

This access will be functional by August 1st and will allow secured access to the buildings and monitoring by Capital’s Department of Public Safety.

      • Capital IDs: All Trinity students and employees need to obtain Capital IDs. Capital IDs will enable use of the automated door access at Trinity, as well as access to Capital auxiliary benefits such as Blackmore Library, work-out facilities, and CapBucks for purchasing food on campus (and at select off campus establishments in Bexley).

        Trinity faculty and staff will be notified when their Capital accounts have been created and then they can come to the Capital IT helpdesk to obtain an ID card. Trinity students will receive an email with directions for obtaining a Capital ID. Students will have the opportunity to submit information for their IDs prior to fall semester or at orientation on August 25.

      • Parking: All Trinity students and employees will need to obtain parking hang tags, which will permit access to parking in university and Trinity parking lots, consistent with the university’s parking regulations which can be found here: http://www.capital.edu/Safety/. Students will be issued student parking permits dependent upon their status as resident or commuter. Trinity faculty and staff will be issued parking permits for the northeast section of the Trinity lot, which will be reserved through December 31 for Trinity faculty and staff parking only. View the campus parking map (PDF).

        Consistent with Trinity’s current practice of not charging for parking, the fee for purchasing a parking hang tag will be waived for the 2017-18 academic year. To obtain a parking permit, Trinity students and employees will need to fill out the application form and turn it in to Capital’s Public Safety Department located in the house at the corner of Mound and College Avenue. Parking permits can be obtained beginning on July 17. A permit will be necessary for parking in all university lots beginning August 21.

      Q. Will I be able to access Capital’s Wi-Fi and other IT systems and services?
      A. Information Technology is working to install Capital’s new wireless and wired internet service.
