This combination of classroom learning and practical experience will prepare you for a life of leadership and service.

Make college affordable: The cost of college is a big concern, but Trevecca’s Office of Financial Aid will help you find scholarships, grants and other financial resources.

Trevecca students have cultivated a positive reputation as dependable employees, and that reputation will help you. Additionally, some internships come with pay.
