Of course, students can still choose to submit their test scores, however, those scores will be considered to be only part of the student’s overall academic record. 

High school students can take the American College Test (ACT) and/or the Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT) and request that scores be sent to Trine.

  • The University's code numbers are 1250 for the ACT and 1811 for the SAT. 
  • Test scores can be submitted via mail, fax, Parchment, screenshot, or e-mail and may be sent FREE from College Board to your counselor at any time.
