Trine enrollment jumps more than 50% for 2nd straight year
September 25, 2023
For the second year in a row, Trine University has experienced a more than 50 percent increase in its official fall enrollment numbers.
Trine has 12,711 students enrolled throughout its campuses, education centers and online, compared to 8,446 recorded in the fall 2022 headcount and 5,392 in fall 2021.
“Trine University’s academic programs are designed to equip students with the skills they need to succeed, lead and serve. Our continued growth demonstrates that we are doing just that,” said John Shannon, Ph.D., Trine University president. “We look forward to continued expansion by meeting the needs of our students as well as business and industry.”
The university enrolled a record 2,425 students at its Angola campus this fall, including a record class of more than 750 new students.
Trine also retained more than 85% of its fall 2022 freshman class.
“We’re pleased that an increasing number of Trine University students like what they experience,” said Kim Bennett, vice president for enrollment management. “We’re always looking for ways to improve our campus amenities as well as our academic programs to give Trine students the best college experience possible.”
To accommodate increased growth in its Rinker-Ross School of Health Sciences, Trine University opened a 36,000-square-foot expansion to Best Hall this semester. Work continues on the 110,000-square-foot Brooks College of Health Professions facility in Fort Wayne, which will house Trine’s health professions programs.
The total also includes more than 7,500 hybrid students enrolled in graduate programs in Detroit and Phoenix. Trine will further expand those programs with the opening of an education in Reston, Virginia, in October.
