Trine Hits Record Summer Enrollment
Trine University has set a new record for summer enrollment. The university says nearly 1,300 students have signed up for summer courses, about one-third of whom are graduate students.
Trine says 628 students are taking summer classes on the main campus, which is a 15 percent increase from last year. More than 600 students are taking courses in Trine’s School of Professional Studies, which is a 45 percent jump over the previous year.
"Summer classes provide a convenience at a discounted cost, both for Trine students looking to graduate early and for students from other colleges looking to catch up while they’re home for the summer," said Trine President Earl Brooks. "The continued growth in the program speaks to the value this educational service provides."
Trine adds the number of graduate students taking summer courses more than doubled on the main campus and more than tripled at the SPS. Thirty-five students are also taking classes at Trine’s campus in Arizona.
The university says it expects graduate school enrollment to grow this fall as well. It also expects continued growth in the number of dual enrollment students.
