Trine corporate partners receive tuition break

April 19, 2022

In addition to enhanced professional development, academic support and recruitment opportunities, corporate partners of Trine University will receive an additional benefit beginning this summer: reduced tuition.

Employees and employee spouses from Trine’s corporate partners will pay only $375 per credit hour for tuition in undergraduate TrineOnline courses.  This is a savings of up to $2,900 for a bachelor’s degree through TrineOnline. 

“Trine continues to deepen its relationships with an increasing number of companies and organizations, and this is one more way we can add value for our corporate partners,” said Jason Watson, assistant vice president and dean of enrollment for TrineOnline.

The reduced tuition applies toward any undergraduate courses taken through TrineOnline, including associate and bachelor programs.

Dependents of those who complete degrees at Trine qualify for the university’s Legacy Award, which provides $2,000 per year toward tuition.

Area businesses and organizations including Black Pine Animal Sanctuary, BrightStar Care, Cardinal IG, Metal Technologies Inc., Blue Jacket, Bowen Center, Master Spas and North Star BlueScope already have corporate partnerships with Trine, allowing them to provide employees more options for professional development and easier access to degree programs.

Trine’s corporate partners receive a complimentary professional development course and access to customized courses, available both online and on-site. Employees of corporate partners receive additional support in obtaining access to available educational grants and scholarships, reducing tuition reimbursement expenses and allowing partners to maximize its impact on staff education.

Employees of corporate partners may apply for enrollment and receive an unofficial transfer credit evaluation for no charge. TrineOnline also offers more than 45 courses using open education resources, eliminating textbook and materials costs.
