"Trident was purchased by American InterContinental University and thus they have become: Predatory, misleading and incompetent. Seriously consider your options, especially if you are affiliated with the military. Attend this school at your own peril."

"The Dean of the School of Business, Dean of the Doctoral Student, my Chair and Dissertation Committee are top in their field, dedicated to assist me and other Doctoral Student and have a genuine interest in Students success.

"DO NOT ATTEND THIS UNIVERSITY. I read other horror stories about this university and still chose to attend because of the increased JST credits they gave me, which was a terrible mistake. The degree is not worth the paper it is printed on, they are impossible to work with, and their "military friendly" tagline is an absolute lie. There are MANY other excellent options. PLEASE do not attend."

"Trident like most other schools is simply guided self learning. The courses require alot of writing and you develop a great understanding of the material. Grading seemed to vary alot between professors, some were easy and some were very difficult. All professors were responsive and offered detailed feedback. Advisers and financial aid office were very open and helpful. Advisers will call you during courses just to check in and see how you are doing. I've been to several school including a top ranked public university, and Trident provided a better quality of education. There are very few quizzes or tests and alot of writing."

"Don’t expect this to be easy, but the journey is worth it. You must be a good time manager and must be able to conduct your own research. TUI has a great curriculum and program. I am a “Triple Trident” and TUI gave me the ability to balance my work life and family life to attain a Ph.D. I will always be grateful to TUI."

"The ability to take courses on-line and not have to travel was amazing. I feel like I learned a great deal from knowledgable faculty. I never had any problems, and my advisor was always willing to help and answer questions. If you are looking for a great education with a flexible schedule, I highly recommend TUI."

"I am enrolled in my 3rd course as a Ph.D. Business Administration with a concentration in Marketing student. The courses are "better than expected", in other words, excellent. Each course consist of SIX uniform modules per the below example: Module 3: Organizational Change - each module has the following: 1. Home (summary of each module) 2. Background (readings for each module - accessible from the online library) 3. Case (written paper around 8 pages – APA formatted) 4. SLP (written paper around 4 pages – APA formatted) 5. Discussion (written commentary, replying to two other students posting) - prior to entering the dissertation phase, students pass a verbal and written examination - students write a quantitative dissertation Final thoughts, I appreciate and enjoy the consistent module structure, knowing I am learning everything expected and necessary for earning a Ph.D. at a regionally accredited university and success in future endeavors. Also, there is not an on campus residency requirement."

"I had a wonderful experience at Trident. The professors were always available to assist and guide you through the graded discussions and course work. Although challenging at times, I maintained a pretty decent average throughout. It takes a lot of discipline and motivation to obtain a degree. Trident is a military friendly school and sets the ground work for you to be successful. Thanks Trident!"
