Angola, IN (PRWEB) August 14, 2012
Trine University’s School of Professional Studies recently implemented changes that will save adult learners at its regional learning centers branch and virtual campuses thousands of dollars over the course of their education. In addition, reports from 2011 show that Trine students saved nearly six figures on textbooks as eTextbooks were adopted.
Officials reported that 12 degree programs were strengthened while reducing the number of required credit hours per degree, saving an average of over $1,500 per student.
The School of Professional Studies will further the savings by allowing each new student to take his or her first class for free. Beginning this fall, adult students will not pay tuition or book fees for their university experience course, which is required in all degree programs. This change represents another $1,000 savings in tuition and book fees.
“We are committed to making an affordable, quality education attainable for working professionals,” said Trine president Earl D. Brooks II, Ph.D. “We are continually evaluating our programs and degrees to make sure they are viable and that they will lead to our graduates finding jobs in their field of interest.”
The School of Professional Studies’ mission is to provide quality, continuous higher learning opportunities for adults who want to begin or advance in careers, enhance lifelong learning, and keep pace with the growing complexities of today's world.
