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 3,700 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 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.
Each year we award more than $23 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 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 91 percent of our graduates are employed in a position related to their major within six months of graduation, with a 95 percent placement rate for our engineering graduates. 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.
Our top priority is to keep students safe and protect life and property.
