First steps are always the most interesting. Especially when you know that, in the end, it’s going to lead to something huge. And at Trine, we don’t believe in small dreams. We doubt you do either. So our staff of seasoned admission and financial aid professionals is ready and waiting to personally guide you through the admission process and make sure you get all the information you need—whether it’s deadlines, FAFSA help, transferring credits, housing, or anything else. We work with some of the best and highest caliber students from public, private, and home schools from around the country and around the world; no question is too small or too big.

The first step is a big one. We’re here to help ensure that it’s also the right one.

An online platform is available to all Trine University students to showcase their accomplishments in and out of the classroom through a service called Merit. The setup is simple: Trine University publishes your accomplishments (like making the dean’s list, joining a choir or receiving a scholarship) to your own personal Merit page. As new achievements, in the form of badges, are awarded, you are notified via email.

Once you claim your page, you can choose to share your accomplishments through Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and a variety of other platforms and a link can be included on your resume as it provides a verified list of achievements that were awarded during your college career. Merit also creates personalized press releases that are sent to local newspapers and websites across the country promoting achievements in students’ home areas.
