Trine sets another enrollment record, topping 9,500 for spring

February 14, 2023

Trine University continues to set enrollment records, with its recently completed official spring enrollment report of students topping 9,000 for the first time in university history.

Trine has 9,520 students enrolled in all programs for the spring 2023 semester, a nearly 70% increase from a year ago, when 5,493 students were enrolled.

“At a time when many higher education institutions are struggling with enrollment, Trine University’s innovative offerings are continuing to attract students into programs that equip them with in-demand skills and prepare them to succeed in their lives and careers,” said Earl D. Brooks II, Ph.D., Trine University president. “These incredible enrollment numbers are a testament to our curriculum, our faculty and to the planning and efforts of everyone on our administrative team.”

Enrollment in hybrid graduate programs at Trine’s Detroit Education Center has now exceeded 4,000 students, and enrollment at its Phoenix center is now almost 800.

The university also saw year-over-year increases in traditional undergraduate programs on its Angola campus and in dual enrollment.

A key factor in Trine’s continued enrollment growth is the university’s success in career outcomes for its graduates. In November, Trine University announced that 99.5% of its Class of 2022 had obtained their desired career outcome within six months of graduation, lifting the placement average for Trine graduates to more than 99% over the past decade.
