Angola, Indiana (PRWEB) August 16, 2012
Trine University’s School of Professional Studies is off to a rolling start and making changes to better accommodate adult and online students, officials announced today.
Trine’s Virtual Campus students can now start degree programs on one of 12 start dates, rather than waiting for two to three months to begin pursuing their educations. The process, commonly referred to as a rolling start, allows students to begin a new program near the first of every month. Research shows that adult and online learners who decide to continue or pursue a degree want to start classes as soon as possible and institutions offering rolling start dates and quick application review are often more likely to meet their work and life needs.
Trine adult and online students can also take advantage of the school’s policy on transfer credits, which, with no expiration dates and credit for life-long learning, shortens the time to degree completion and decreases the amount of debt post-graduation.
“While our student population continues to grow at our nine regional learning centers and at our virtual campus, it is important that we provide new and engaging opportunities for these students,” said Trine president Earl D. Brooks II, Ph.D. “By providing flexible education models, we can help our students earn their degrees in a cost-effective, timely manner.”
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.
