Statement of Rational
There is great intention behind the unique fee and payment structure of the Trivium Institute programs. Our goal with this financial arrangement is that students graduate debt-free from the Institute. To that end each module must be paid-in-full in advance of commencing the module or have a 12-month payment plan established with the Trivium Institute through direct ACH debit from your bank account or through the use of a debit card. No credit cards may be used for course registration, fees, etc.
Why do want graduates to be debt free? Student debt is a growing problem in the United States with more than $1.2 trillion dollars owed by students, many who never graduate from the programs in which they enroll. It is the largest single category of personal debt in our nation. Many Christian students have been prevented from fully and passionately pursuing their God-given calling in vocation and mission due to such debt load.
The development of the Institute has been a labor of love from a team of professionals engaged in real-world activities represented by each school. They have sacrificed and donated their time, knowledge, creative abilities and experience to keep the cost to the student at a minimum. In addition artisans, technical staff and donors have partnered with us to make The Trivium Institute for Leader Development a reality, seeking to provide to you the student the development and education you need to pursue your calling while freeing you from the burden of debt. Your response to God’s gracious gift to you through these people is to be diligent to keep your financial obligations in the program and work hard at your coursework.
