There’s nothing stronger than family. And we know that for many of our prospective students, their family is very involved in the decision-making process when it comes to picking the right college. So whether you’re a parent, aunt, uncle, guardian, sibling, or friend of someone considering Trine, it’s important for you to know that when he or she leaves your family to go off to college, when they get here, they really do become part of another one.

With 4,500 students and a student-to-faculty ratio of just 13 to 1, ours is an environment in which every individual matters and is supported. That support is demonstrated by mentoring, nurturing and empowering each student  to make the most of his or her potential. And with the generous financial aid programs available, ours is an exceptional, private college experience that is much more affordable than you might think.

Our Support 

Our top priority is the safety, security, and support of our students. We provide an extensive network of support services—from health and wellness, to disability services, to campus safety, to issues related to housing or dining. And students enjoy personalized guidance and mentorship from their professors, advisors, and resident assistants to make sure they stay on track academically and have a seamless transition into the college experience. 

Our Value

Each year we award more than $24 million in institutional scholarships and grants to our students. Our students generally graduate in four years, and with scholarships, grants, loans, and co-ops, our annual tuition and fees often amount to less than what you’d find at large, public, state universities. It’s no wonder that U.S. News & World Report has ranked Trine as one of the best colleges in the Midwest for students graduating with the least amount of debt.

Our Results 

Our more than 25,000 alumni are succeeding at the highest levels at places like GE Aviation, Honda, Cummins, Rockwell, BAE Systems, Chesapeake Energy, and Caterpillar, among many others. Approximately 98.8 percent of Trine graduates find employment or are in graduate school within six months of graduation. Our graduates’ starting salaries exceed the national average in every category, and have been accepted into graduate programs at institutions such as Stanford, Yale, Michigan, Notre Dame, Virginia Tech, the Air Force Institute of Technology, and more.

Trine University remains committed to cultivating diversity, inclusion and fairness. As a leading private institution of higher education, Trine fosters a culture of understanding, growth and inquiry; values the diverse qualities of its students, faculty and staff; promotes an inclusive environment free of discrimination and intolerance; and welcomes everyone.

Trine will not allow discrimination and will continue to grant admission and provide educational opportunities without regard to race, age, disability, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, marital status, national origin, religion or veteran status. The culture of Trine University dictates that these same standards of acceptance apply to all faculty, staff, alumni and community members.
