American Trinity University’s founders selected the not-for-profit religious exempt corporation for the simple reason that it is the most affordable way to keep tuition low. ATU has a ground presence in Belize and in Moreno Valley, California.
In addition to providing one of the best educations possible, ATU is the seminary arm of The Reconciliation of Science and Religion Organization located in California. www.Rel-Sci.org. As such, students may become ordained ministers, called Deans, or may become a Deacon in order to perform weddings.
ATU teaches using the original authors of the Greatest Books of the World. ATU focuses primarily on students from India, Brazil, Malaysia, Singapore, Indonesia, and Africa. Over its history, ATU has given 100% scholarships to select students from Pakistan, India, Ghana, and Nigeria who could prove they cannot afford to attend. To others that can afford it, ATU offers very low tuition rates (depending on the local economy) and accept payment plans.
We do not offer degrees based solely upon life experience. We do not offer engineering or medical degrees. ATU does offer credit for life experience for only a stated percentage of the overall degree and still requires that the student requesting such credit complete and submit essays for grading.
