Middle College Campus Experience students register for current courses held on the campuses of Trine University (including online). These courses are regular college classes with full-time students enrolled. Middle College students are either given leave from their high schools to attend these classes during the regular school day or they attend in the evening and online.
This program is called the Campus Experience, because it is just that – a total Campus Experience! Middle College students earn college credit, are taught by full-time and adjunct college professors, work in groups with college students, attend classes on a college campus, receive Trine University IDs to attend college events, have access to their own personal student e-mail accounts, and can participate in all the academic support services available through the university.
Middle College staff members are trained in helping you and your parents or guardians transition between high school and college. After high school graduation, we hope that you will choose to stay at Trine University as a full-time student; however, we can also choose classes that are transferable to other institutions.
