Our program is designed for students who seek the challenging, substantive academic experience Trinity is known for, together with the support and services adult learners need and want.
Trinity’s Individualized Degree Program (IDP) welcomes all applicants at least 24 years old or self-supporting, and our community of non-traditional students includes veterans, second bachelor’s degree candidates, and international students.
