"The Professors created an atmosphere that made me not only learn the material, but guided me correctly presenting what I learned and discovered through research. They also showed appreciation and gave value to personal experiences that I shared with the class."

"Working full time, having a work / family life balance and throw in a graduate degree. That’s a tall order for anyone. Imagine being deployed on a front line or as a disaster responder added to this. Trident answers the call when it comes to these challenges. With staff and professors supporting you and students like yourself, failure is not an option. Some reviews may show negative remarks. While most are likely undergrad, it reflects the individuals initiative to succeed. No one I have ever spoken with has had a negative remark when they put forth the effort. Aspire, Believe, Achieve is not just a motto. It is an inspiration to better yourself."

"I honestly believe Trident University is a challenging yet rewarding institution. I received my Bachelors Degree in 2016 from Trident. Trident has helped me to become more open minded and look outside my way of thinking. I look forward to taking what Ive learned and use it in the near future."

"I just completed my MSHLS/EDM and I felt the program at TUI overall worked very well for me and my full time job. The program was definitely writing intensive, having a Case Assignment and a Session Long Project due every 2 weeks. Coming from a person who is more of a test taker, rather than a paper writer, I felt this program greatly improved my writing and researching skills. From my personal experience, the instructors and staff were very professional and helpful and I never had any issues throughout my 18 months. I qualified for a scholarship, which helped out on the tuition and made it a little more affordable. This degree will definitely help me out in getting to the next level in my career because I currently work for the agency and have TUI alumni working here that value this education. Not everything is perfect in any school, so I'm going to mention some improvements to make this review more legitimate and not sound like a recruiter for TUI. Some of the courses either did not provide or gave very minimal background information in the modules. I found this a little difficult in starting the assignments and sometimes had to click on the links and learn it on my own. If I had questions, the instructors replied rather quickly, so no complaints there. The biggest Con I have were the lack of textbooks. I feel the textbooks would've gave me a better knowledge foundation, rather than getting bits and pieces from online articles. Overall I enjoyed the program and hopefully it provides me the knowledge to improve my career. It worked very well with my work schedule and provided me with enough knowledge to make an impact in this field. I did not have to quit my job, move back to my parents and live off of ramen to complete this program. Hopefully this review helps in whether you decide to go to TUI or another school."

"Great school, very affordable, good faculty members. They do change the portal so you hv to be make sure you are on par with the plan. If the most Senior Enlisted in the Army is good enough, good enough for me. If I do decide to get my PhD, I would go back to this school."

"An outstanding college with all access at your finger tips - literally.... 100% online. Degree helped me get a top notch job and I am so excited that I chose Trident University. The program was exactly what I thought while the professors were knowledgeable and staff was personable which helped me get through both the hard and easy times. I recommend this school to anyone."

"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"
