Main Campus Application Requirements

In addition to your application, we will need the following items for admission consideration:

Sending your scores each time you take the SAT/ACT can benefit you by allowing Trine to consider you for all available merit scholarships and enrollment opportunities. You may send in your College Board Score Report for FREE to your counselor at any time.
