Going one step further

Academic Opportunities

No two people are the same—and neither are their educational experiences. What happens in the classroom is important. But sometimes, what happens outside of it—that little extra something you do to make your education solely your own—is just as significant.

Trine encourages you to own your education. Challenge yourself at every opportunity. Your future will thank you.

Take advantage of programs for high school students

Enhance your college experience

Honors Program

There's always more to know. Find out what it is in Trine's rigorous honors courses. Students in the program interact inside and outside of class for academic and social activities—and receive priority registration, recognition at graduation, and a leg up on the competition.

Pathways and Guarantees

With a Lifetime Guarantee that features a four-year graduation guarantee or fifth year of free tuition for students who start their freshman year with Trine to a Four Plus One or Three Year Full Throttle degree pathways, you choose how you want your academic experience to take shape.

For students interested in legal students, Trine offers the Legal Education Academic program which partners with law schools in order to have a shorter, more cost-effective path to a Juris Doctor (J.D.) degree

Study Abroad

Position yourself as a future leader in our global economy by gaining a worldview only firsthand experience can create. At Trine, you can study in more than 30 different countries on six continents for a semester, year, summer, or even during spring break.

 ROTC 

Gain leadership skills in Air Force ROTC training classes—and earn scholarships while doing it—through a partnership with the University of Notre Dame.

 Cooperative Education

Immediately use what you learn. You can alternate semesters of classes with semesters of employment related to your field of study. Not only will you graduate with a Trine degree but also at least 45 weeks of field experience.

Summer Session

Perfect for anyone who wants to graduate sooner rather than later, Summer Session enables you to take classes over the summer, accelerate your education, and get that diploma in your hand even sooner.
