Trine University students, beginning with students entering in the fall of 2009, are required to live on campus. Students who are married, responsible for a dependent child, living at home with a parent or legal guardian (within 40 miles of Angola), or 21 years of age on or before the first day of fall classes may be waived from this requirement. Students with a cumulative GPA of a 2.0 or higher and have completed 48 credit hours and lived on campus for four semesters may be approved to move into a University recognized Sorority / Fraternity House or Christian Campus House.
Students are required to be enrolled full-time (12 credit hours per semester) to reside in university housing. Students must have the written approval from the Dean of Student Life prior to moving off campus. Failure to receive approval or providing false information may lead to expulsion from Trine University.
All residential students: A signed Residential Room and Board Contract, Housing Information Form, and Housing Deposit are required before arriving on campus. The Residential Room and Board Contract is binding for the entire academic year. If the Residential Room and Board Contract is broken or if permission from the Dean of Students has not been given to be released from the contract, the Housing Deposit is forfeited and a contract release fee will be assessed.
Additionally, any student leaving on–campus housing without a contract release may be subject to billing for the entire contract period. Falsification of housing arrangements may lead to expulsion from the University. For those students with an on–campus portion of the Trine University Merit Scholarship it will be withdrawn once the student is no longer an on–campus residential student. The academic merit portion will remain. The student is eligible for other types of financial assistance, and as always it is recommended that the student continue to complete the FAFSA by the March 10th institutional deadline.
