Student studying in the Bean Counter

Dual Enrollment

Dual Enrollment courses are designed for high school students who are looking to expand their academic horizon. At Trine we offer many different delivery options for classes, giving students the ability to choose the platform that works best for them.

  • The campus experience is when high school students take university courses on our campus or online.

  • The academic experience is a program in the high schools taught by fully qualified adjunct/hybrid instructors who are also high school teachers. These courses are offered at your high school campus during the regular school day.

Dual Credit Priority List

Core Transfer Library

  • The transferability of these credits within the state of Indiana can be guaranteed if they are listed on the Core Transfer Library. Any student wanting to take dual credit courses and planning not to attend Trine University for undergraduate study is encouraged to contact their intended school for confirmation of transferability.

Degree Applicable

  • Time is precious, so we encourage our students to ensure the courses they are taking will apply to their intended degree program. Universities list degree requirements on their website. Students should research universities and degree programs to confirm courses will transfer and are applicable to their degree program. If unsure about transferability, reach out to a college representative for assistance.

The 1098-T tax form is necessary if you will be claiming the American Opportunity or Lifetime Learning Credit. This information is for tax reporting purposes only and meets Trine University's obligation for reporting per IRS guidelines.
