First Time Students 

Those student candidates who have been invited to participate in The Trivium Institute will receive from the Registrar and Bursar’s Office: 

  • An email with confirmation of the Letter of Invitation from the Mentor 

  • Transcript Request Instructions 

  • A request to complete a Student Information Form (SIF) 

  • An invoice for the Application Fee 

  • The Trivium Course Catalog 


Candidate students should complete the SIF, and complete payment for the application fee. Each student candidate is to request an official transcript from their high school or GED program, and have the transcript forwarded directly to the Registrar. The Trivium Institute will not make the request. Upon receipt of all transcript documents, the student candidate’s records will be reviewed by a member of The Institute Faculty/Staff. 

The Bursar will send the student candidate an invoice for the Pre-Entry Module fee. Once the Registrar has received the Pre-Entry Module fee, student candidates will receive instructions to access the assessments, via email. The fee covers the cost of the assessments and the two Pre- Entry Module Courses. The fee is the same, even if the courses are waived. 

Student candidates are to complete the assessments, and send the results to Registrar. A Profile of the student assessments will be completed and placed in the student’s permanent academic record. Copies of the Profile will also be given to the student and the mentor. 

Once all transcripts, assessments and fees have been received, the candidate student will receive a Welcome Packet which includes a letter with a transcript review, information to access courses (Pre-Entry Module courses), the Student Covenant, and how to set up payments. 

Once the Pre-Entry Module courses have been completed satisfactorily, the student will be granted Enrollment.  

Transfer Students 

Those student candidates who have been invited to participate in The Trivium Institute who have had prior college credits/degrees will follow the same process for Admission as stated above. A student who wishes to receive credit for a course taken at another college or university must receive approval from the Office for Undergraduate Studies. Courses must be taken at an accredited university. Only the credits transfer, grades do not, and will not be included in your cumulative GPA. Note: The Office of Undergraduate Studies and Deans reserve the right not to approve transfer credit for courses.

Transfer Credits 

The Trivium Institute will transfer-in credits from other globally-accredited institutions as long as the course material is evaluated to be equivalent to The Trivium Institute course and the grade received in the course(s) is a C or above. You will receive a Transfer Credit Evaluation indicating which courses will transfer into your selected Trivium program of study. 

Non-Credit Students 

Those individuals who would like to take a course(s) from the Degree Programs or Continuing Education Course Listing as part of your life-long learning plan without receiving credit must complete a Non-Credit Student Registration Form. Upon completion of these forms and payment of the course fee (see Fee Schedule), you will have access to the online content and course syllabus; however, you are not required to complete any course work nor will any coursework be graded.

Continuing Education for Credit 

Students who wish to take courses from either the Degree Programs or the Continuing Education Course Listing for credit may do so. The student must complete a Registration Form. Upon completion of this form and payment of the course fee (see Fee Schedule), you will have access to the online content and course syllabus. 

Student Seeking Re-Admittance 

Individuals who were previously enrolled in The Trivium Institute and have either voluntarily withdrawn or been dismissed, but desire to be considered for re-enrollment, must reapply through their mentor. Upon receipt of a letter from the mentor, a letter of explanation from the student, a new Student Information Form (SIF), a new Student Covenant and a non-refundable application fee, the student candidate’s request for re-enrollment will be reviewed by a member or members of The Trivium Staff. Each request will be considered on a case-to-case basis, and may include an Academic Review and/or Ethics Review.
