Student & Graduate Reviews

4.7 out of 5 stars
Dr.Moore - 5/8/2019
Degree: Educational Leadership
Graduation Year: 2016
"As a transfer student from another university TUI made sure I had everything I needed to complete my degree. From the student registrar to the Dean of Students I was able to complete my last four classes and defend my dissertation with no problem. The professors, my dissertation committee, and chair by far were amazing. I am proud to say I am "Trident Strong.""

"I enjoyed my learning experience with TUI. Being military, the online classes worked great with my busy and unpredictable work schedule; with easy access to the professors and academic advisors. Every person involved in my educational path at TUI were extremely professional, helpful and friendly."

"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."

"Be ready to read with understanding and write. The second key is participation. Your class mates depend on that. I've participated/attended several in-class and online schools, but this one challenged me more then any. The administration, financial, academic advisers work together as a solid team in a way that I never experience."

"I feel that my experience throughout this program has been extremely rewarding. Trident University has an outstanding faculty. The organization and scheduling of courses wewre rigorous and required significant effort on my part; however the knowledge and experience gained were well worth the effort."

"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."

"I would rate the education and class culture experience as experience as OUTSTANDING. After completing my graduate degree with Trident, my wife attained her Masters degree and we have two children that are currently attending. Would recommend this school to everyone without hesitation."

Degree: Project Management
Graduation Year: 2018
"I believe that all of the classes the were offered at Trident University while I was studying there were very applicable to the files that I work on. On a near daily basis something comes up with work that I can think back to what I have learned from the University and have confidence in my knowledge and skills."

Degree: Public Health
Graduation Year: 2019
"My experience with Trident has been amazing. The professors offered encouragement every step of the way. When I had questions and needed assistance, the professors were there without hesitation. The critique offered was relevant and made me feel as if I could do whatever was required. The requirement for research was intense, but was a necessary component. All in all I can honestly say I am proud to have been a part of Trident International."

Degree: Business Administration
Graduation Year: 2017
"Challenging curriculum, that brought real world experience which transposed knowledge relevant to the desired bachelors program, through assignments and overall student/faculty interaction. Would highly recommend to anyone wishing to further their careers, while still being able to accomplish their duties at home and work."
