Trine filling funding gap
University shoring up SSACI shortfall
Trine University has announced a plan to offset a gap in State Student Assistance Commission of Indiana (SSACI) funding for incoming fall students whose financial aid has been impacted by the recent reduction in state assistance. SSACI awards need-based grants to those attending public, independent and proprietary colleges.
“Since we had anticipated reductions in SSACI funding due to the higher-than-usual number of state-wide recipients, we took aggressive, proactive measures to ensure our students’ financial needs would still be met by the university,” said Scott Goplin, Trine’s Vice President for Enrollment Management.
Trine students enrolled for the fall semester received notice earlier this week of the university’s provision of stop-gap funding for their education.
Trine provides over $12 million a year in scholarships and financial aid. Although the university expects record enrollment this fall, additional funds remain for students who have not yet finalized their college plans. Those still determining their college destination can receive information about funding by contacting Kelly McGuire, Trine associate director of financial aid, at 260.665.4130 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
