It’s official: Trine University’s new Peoria campus has earned accreditation and is rolling out the red carpet to prospective students in the West Valley. The Higher Learning Commission (HLC) approved Trine to conduct business in Peoria. Trine had planned to offer its classes on the new campus in Peoria this fall and can begin offering seated classes this summer. “We had planned to enroll 200 students this fall; now we’re ready to push that ahead and start enrolling students for this summer,” said Earl D. Brooks II, Trine president.
Trine University, Peoria will offer 34 areas of study with bachelor degrees in biomedical, civil and mechanical engineering, applied management, business administration, communication, computer science, criminal justice, emergency management, engineering technology, general studies and psychology. Trine will offer master’s degrees in criminal justice, engineering and leadership.
