Pay It Forward

As a TSC/TSU/Trine University alum you know first-hand the benefits of attending a smaller university where you knew your professors (often they were even your advisors), could participate in numerous activities, and were known as an individual not as a number. Hopefully this left a lasting impression on you.

We are now asking you to help share that experience with others. Do you know of a high school Junior or Senior who would consider Trine University?  If so, we would love to hear about them. It is impossible for us to know the names of every high school student so we have to rely on direct mail, college fairs and ACT/SAT or other name acquisition services to identify potential future students. However, we feel the best way to attract the interest of a prospective student is to hear about them from alumni. We still believe in recruiting students the old fashioned way, with personal attention, care, and concern for them as individuals.

Legacy Awards are available for incoming freshmen who are the children, grandchildren or siblings of graduates (or currently enrolled siblings). The Legacy Award is valued at $2,000 annually (undergraduate only).

New for Incoming Freshmen in the Fall of 2017, Alumni Referral Awards will be available to any new prospective student officially referred by an alumnus of the University who applies, is admitted and enrolls at Trine University.  The future Trine University alum will receive a $250 annual Alumni Referral Award. This award is renewable up to a total value of $1,000 over four years (undergraduate only).  NOTE: Legacy Award recipients are not eligible for the Alumni Referral Award.
