Trine plans aid as college closes
Trine University is offering a quick transfer for former Harrison College students, the university in Angola announced Monday.
On Friday, Harrison College announced it will cease operations. University of Saint Francis said last week it will accept displaced Harrison students and offer an annual $10,000 tuition scholarship.
Students wishing to transfer to Trine will be able to start classes as early as Oct. 22, the university said in a statement.
Trine will transfer up to 89 semester credits from Harrison College or any accredited college or university, with no expiration date on transfer credits and credit offered for lifelong learning, the statement said.
Students who were in associate degree programs at Harrison will have the opportunity to complete one of Trine’s associate degree programs, with the option of continuing on to earn a bachelor’s degree.
Trine University also will work with Harrison College students who were in technical programs such as veterinary technology or respiratory care to help them earn a customized applied management degree.
“Trine University will do everything possible to smoothly transfer earned credits for students who were attending Harrison College,” Ryan Dombkowski, dean of the university’s College of Graduate and Professional Studies, said in the news release.
“We are a not-for-profit university where the needs of our students always come first, and we will treat our new students from Harrison the very same way.”
