Wallet iconCost savings for you and your employees 

  • No application fee and no hidden fees. 
  • Free unofficial transfer credit evaluation.
  • We accept up to 90 credits toward a bachelor's degree program. Your employees' transfer credits can include prior college credit, company training and/or certificates and even life experience. This means fewer classes to complete a degree, resulting in lower reimbursement expenses for you, the employer.
  • We offer more than 45 courses using Open Educational Resources (OER), meaning zero costs for textbooks and materials for employees taking these courses.
  • We offer two "Z degrees," the national designation for programs that use free resources. These degrees allow your employees to complete them without paying for textbooks in their core courses.
  • Custom invoicing and payment options with signed agreement.
  • Course discounts available with signed agreement with Trine (minimum enrollments may apply).
  • Your employees can earn graduate credits while working on their bachelor's degrees. We offer combined degree programs where students can complete both a bachelor's degree and master's degree in as few as four years. This means fewer classes, in turn a lower reimbursement expense for the employer.
  • Trine proudly assists companies and students in discovering grant and scholarship opportunities - eliminating some reimbursement expenses altogether for our partners.

People iconFlexibility

  • Enroll any time! New classes start every 8 weeks.
  • Trine welcomes all shifts, at all hours, in any time zone – classes are online and asynchronous, meaning there are no set class times. Students can do coursework when it's convenient for them.
