Flexible Study Options


Study at Your Own Pace

Trinity gives students a variety of options for academic success that fits their lifestyle and goals. If you want to take a few college courses, but aren’t looking to complete a full degree, then consider becoming a visiting student. If you want to learn about a certain subject but are not sure you’re ready to enroll as a student, then audit a class or two! Are you in high school but want to get a head start on college? Our dual enrollment program could be just what you’re looking for. Do you want the opportunity to get a full degree from the comfort of your own home? Trinity offers several undergraduate majors like Business, Christian Ministries and Criminal Justice that can be completed with our online studies program. And finally, enrich your Trinity College experience by studying overseas for a semester. Studying abroad exposes you to other cultures, languages, and experiences—make the world your classroom! 

No matter where you are in life or where you want to go, Trinity wants to help you get there! 


“Our various study options are great opportunities for personalized experience and growth.” 

—Fabio Fernandez, Admissions Counselor


Study Opportunities

AUDITING STUDENTS
If you’re interested in seeing what college is all about but aren’t sure you’re ready to enroll, then try auditing a class! As an auditing student you can enroll in a course without being required to complete the study and class assignments normally required of that course when taking it for credit. Although no credit is granted, the audited courses will still be recorded on your official transcript. Also, fewer admissions requirements are necessary for auditing students. Learn More.

DUAL ENROLLMENT
If you’re a high school junior or senior who is interested in earning college credit now rather than later, then consider attending Trinity College through our dual enrollment option. This is an exciting way to find out what taking a college class is really like! Plus, you are earning college credit, which can count to your final degree someday. Dual enrollment students need to apply and be accepted into the program, but there is a simplified admission procedure used for them. Registration for dual enrollment students takes place after Trinity College students register. Learn More.

VISITING STUDENTS
One way to be a part of student life at TIU is to enroll as a Visiting Student.  A Visiting Student is someone who is not pursuing a degree program but who wants to be admitted for part-time studies (a maximum of 6 hours of credit per semester or one course per May Term session). You might decide to enroll as a Visiting Student in order to take certain classes while enrolled at another college or university or to take classes for personal growth and development. There is a simplified admission process used for Visiting Students. Visiting Students at Trinity are not considered to be enrolled in a degree program. However, students wishing to enroll in a degree program but only take six (6) hours or less are classified as “regular part-time students.” Learn More.

ONLINE STUDIES
Earn your degree at home! One of the most convenient ways to study is through our online program. A flexible online degree means you get the enrichment of college in a way that fits your life. Advance your current career or prepare for a future one with any of our 100% online degrees through Trinity Online.

OVERSEAS STUDY EXCURSIONS
Watch your education come alive in the context of another country! The stories you’ll listen to and the places you’ll see will change the way you view the world. In addition to semester-long overseas study options, Trinity professors lead their own short-term study abroad trips in conjunction with their classes. Whenever possible, Trinity wants to provide its students with the option to travel internationally and experience the broader world for course credit—and for roughly the same cost as studying at our Deerfield campus.
