Parents of Prospective Students
Welcome to Trine University, a close-knit community of 1,350 students, dedicated faculty, and staff. We understand you may be anxious about the upcoming stage in your child’s life. It’s only natural.
Here at Trine University, you’ll find a safe, supportive, respectful environment dedicated to your child’s intellectual, personal, and professional growth. It’s something we’ve been doing since 1884. As a small, private university, we get to know our students personally. You’ll also discover supportive resources for parents as well. The Trine Parents’ Association provides meaningful ways for parents to get involved in their sons’ and daughters’ education.
Our excellent academic programs focus on hands-on learning as well as theoretical study. That’s because Trine faculty are not only experts at teaching, but they bring on-the-job experience from their fields of expertise into our classrooms. Our professors spend time mentoring students and helping them achieve their goals and dreams.
Residence life at Trine creates a community that feels like home. Students live in comfortable, new apartment-style residence halls. Our active campus offers more than 60 student organizations, intramural and intercollegiate sports, Greek life, and campus-wide activities such as Bingo for Books and Library Putt-Putt.
Our moderate tuition costs are off-set by generous financial aid and scholarships. More than 95 percent of our students receive financial aid, including nearly $9 million in Trine scholarships and grants. U.S. News & World Report ranks Trine University students as graduating with the least amount of college debt.
The best proof of an excellent education and great life preparation is the success of our graduates. Ninety-two percent of Trine graduates find employment in their careers within six months of graduation. And they earn starting salaries that exceed the national average in every category.
