Degree: MBA
Graduation Year: 2016

For those that have full time jobs and can't do the traditional classroom learning, this is your program. Rigorous learning for the adult student. I learned and retained more than when I was attending traditional schools. Lots of commentary on here claims a negative experience. If you are disciplined this program will work for you!!

Degree: Non-Profit Management
Graduation Year: 2016

This "University" and I use the term loosely is a both a joke and a waste of time. They claim to give you all the materials required for the course you are taking. What they fail to mention is that the materials provided include wikipedia links and youtube videos, Non of which are considered academic references or resources to another accredited University or College. During my 6 week course I emailed my "professor" a total of 3 times and she responded a total of 0 times. She only had 2 jobs to grade the work and respond to emails. Seeing that there is no real instruction being provided. You watch the videos read the links and attempt to do the assignments to the best of your abilities. . I would call this a "google degree" or "self taught university" because I spent more time Googling the information than using there "academic" references and my "professor" never responded to emails. I now have a full understanding of the meaning of a for profit institution. When i was being recruited I heard from the staff multiple times a week. However once enrolled it became nearly impossible to get in contact with anyone. Please do yourself a favor and do not waste your time and or money.

Degree: MBA in Accounting
Graduation Year: 2015

I attended Trident after years of regretting not completing my undergrad. I'd all but given up figuring that at 41 and already well engaged in my career that perhaps it wasn't necessary to complete my degree anymore, this all came crashing down when I was given a promotion at work on the condition that I obtain a certification which required a degree within 2 years. After scouring the Internet looking for schools which would accommodate my other responsibilities my wife found trident. This school was excellent, great tuition rates and after being out of the military for several allowed me to feel reconnected with my "band of brothers". I enjoyed trident so much that I decided to push through and obtain my MBA. This school gave me a sense of confidence and pride after years of discomfort and frankly being ashamed. Remember, it's never too late

Degree: Business Administration, Management and Operations, Other
Graduation Year: 2016

A very excellent choice of university which has impacted and influenced my life tremendously. It definitely helped me to understand my dynamic purpose which was fulfilled with persistence in pursuit of a worthy goal of receiving my MBA.. I originally set out to complete my degree with the University of Maryland; due to rigorous demands of my job and attending night courses, I decided to give Trident University a try. It is one of the best decisions I could have ever made!

Degree: Homeland Security
Graduation Year: 2016

I was a transfer graduate student. When I was in the process of transferring to this university I was told by two admissions counselors that both of my graduate classes would be accepted by Trident. This was a lie. Both counselors told me what I wanted to hear so that I would choose Trident. I used Trident's complaint resolution system to no avail. I spoke to many people up to and including the vice president of admissions and all I received was excuses so what I was promised never happened. I will transfer to another university. I would give zero stars if I could. I recommend not to attend this university

Degree: Business Administration
Graduation Year: 2016

I am having a difficult time with the lack of curriculum and being forced to interact with students on the lowest levels of the academic spectrum. This school has used more YouTube lectures and Wiki-type references than I thought possible. In response to their accreditation being threatened, they decided to make the assignment’s harder and longer. The problem is the instruction is still the same. The classes lack references to actual academic sources of information. Investment Analysis should not be taught using Investopedia. I had to use other online libraries to gain access to Harvard Business Review articles. I joke that my degree is a Google Education because I am self-taught. My accounting professor said I had to use his elementary PowerPoint references in my paper. Instead, I found an MIT textbook with better information. As far as the other students go, I feel as though I am at the top of the bell curve because of the exponential downturn in the IQ of other people enrolled. For a prime example, read Lavenia Taylor’s comment. I believe she meant to write the following: I have lost all hope with my education. I no longer qualified for financial aid because I earned a B- , which lowered my GPA to an unacceptable level. I cannot pay out-of-pocket, I have no money. I will now be forced to apply for a private loan. I already messed up my BA. College is not worth it. College got me nowhere in life, and I am almost 30. The fact that I am forced to interact with college students possessing the grammar skills of my kindergarten son is enough to lower the school’s ranking. Sorry Lavenia, but you are the reason my “college” education is being diluted to an expensive online extension of high school. Overall, they will gladly take $1,000 per class. They were definitely helpful when I needed to complete a FAFSA application for a grant. You will teach yourself and occasionally be smarter than the professors. Your experience in the discussion boards with crush your soul with the immense stupidity of other enrolled members. A quote from my last discussion board, “I lik that government keep us wit the money baked by gold.” I believe this person was trying to say our currency is still backed by gold, and I proceeded to correct the ignorance in a 400-level course. This was a response to a question about the feasibility of long-term quantitative easing with fiat currencies. P.S. We probably got the same score for the discussion points.

Degree: Business Administration and Management, General
Graduation Year: 2016

TERRIBLE SCHOOL! - Very bad experience ... twice! The first time was several years ago and was a communication snafu facilitated by all reps being in Military - must have had four reps in the three months I was enrolled. This last time, either through design or incompetence, the portal to class slammed closed on midnight of last day - not just limited to read-only but barred from entering "classroom". I learned about a week later that I had earned an A- in that class, but I was given no feedback for the last two class projects - nor was I allowed to renter class to copy down "Discussion" posts - of which I was a leader in the class and very prolific. IT was unwilling to help; Instructor was unwilling to help; Customer Service was unable to help; Dean was unwilling to help. The week-long struggle to obtain closure on this created so much stress and anxiety for me that had to drop my then current class. Although it was prior to due date of first project it was apparently not prior to last date to drop - so they called it a Withdrawal and levied a $750 fee. I did not learn about that issue until my transcript request was late getting to my prospective school - two weeks later. Terrible school! Terrible Customer Service and Terrible Curriculum! Their is absolutely no intellectual Property at TUI. Their entire curriculum is based on other scholars' works. The "Projects" consist of terse directions that appeared to be Cut & Pasted from previous projects. Barely intelligible due to their disjointed nature. Terrible School and terrible Online Application. Their Discussion App is very poorly written - they actually said I should write discussions in Word and copy into the app to bypass some of the app's failings - this suggestion came too late. Read the Wikipedia article about their finances - you'll be lucky to graduate before they go under - or they lose their accreditation.

Degree: Educational Leadership
Graduation Year: 2016

I once loved this school. However, the FA department is so disorganized that they have caused me more pain than I can tolerate. My VA benefits wore off but I specifically stated that I wanted FASFA as a second option. They waited AFTER my classes were finished before they told me that my student loans/grants didn't go through, even though I had fixed the problems long before they even knew about them. What's really screwed up is that they didn't allow me to finish my course extensions. So, the work that I did was for nothing...and I failed. I'm dropping it for another college. Don't waste your money nor time.

Degree: Information Technology
Graduation Year: 2018

This college changed my entire existence. My entire being is dependent on how incredible these classes were, just beyond amazing. The instructors were incredible, beautiful, lovely, brilliant, and SO helpful for everything I needed. I appreciate them for saving my life. I was going to commit suicide, but this changed my life so much I reconsidered. That's how incredible they are. THAT incredible.
