ONE OF THE BEST ONLINE SCHOOLS I have taken classes in different university and colleges due to the constant moving. I have been with Trident University International for five and a half years. I have completed my BSBA in Government Accounting and Contract Management and now I am completing my Masters in Leadership. I have read the other reviews and I noticed that people said that the only material they school give is youtube videos, this is far from the truth. The students have access to more than ten different online libraries including Proquest, Barnes and Noble and others, which you can save and/or print (depending on the source). The videos are recommended for those who learn by visual instruction. Personnel/Staff - if you have any issue with someone and you let the Chief of the department they will resolved it in 24 hours. I had three issues, including the first advisor assigned to me for my Masters that was rude. I contacted the previous advisors and she talked to the Chief of that department. In few hours the new advisor called me and give me the ins and outs to complete my Master degree. No only they resolve the situation they took care of the issue and rectified the situation. For my Bachelor I have the same advisor for 4 years and she was wonderful. The advisor for my Master, she is also wonderful and knowledgeable. No matter that I have encounter with my medical challenges, they were there for me, supporting me to complete my degree. The classes are not that easy how people posted here, you need to read, research, and be eloquent at the time preparing your work. In total, from my four schools I have gone to, this one is the best.

All about perspective; IT WAS WORTH IT TO ME Bottom Line: This is an accredited university; 100% online! If you need a degree to advance in your job and a degree from ANYBODY will do, then this is a school for you. If you need “Major University USA” on your transcript, then this is not the school for you. My situation: I was in need of a degree from anybody and any program would have fit the bill. I will admit, since it was a virtual, regionally accredited for-profit university I thought I could turn in less than stellar academic work. I was wrong and called out on it by the professor! I started the MBA-HR program when the university was called Touro University. Since completing my degree I am considered a graduate of an MBA program, have been accepted into several career enhancement programs, promoted several times and was able to use my degree and work experience to become a well-compensated HR official. The school was not a waste of my money or time as I have earned three-fold over since completing my degree.

WASTE OF TIME AND MONEY This "University" and I use the term loosely is both a joke and a waste of money. They claim to provide all of the materials needed for the courses you take however they fail to mention that the course materials include wikipedia and youtube videos. Neither of which are considered academic references to any another accredited university or college. I would call this a google degree because I spent more time googling the answers than I did using the materials provided. I emailed my professor 3 times during a 6 week class and never heard back from her. She only had 2 jobs grade the work and respond to emails. Seeing that she does not spend anytime actually teaching or instructing anyone.

BSBA and MBA Trident University International was a GREAT experience I completed my BSBA in 2010 while I was working a Department of Defense (DoD)position as a GS-05. As soon as I completed my BSBA I was offered an Intern position that I accepted with an agreement to complete my MBA within 3 years. With the help of Trident and the staff members I was able to complete my MBA in 2013. I am currently waiting to graduate from DoD Copper Cap Intern Program in 2016 that will put me into a GS-11 position permanently.Because of Trident University International, the materials and overall support to help me learn, organize, focus and complete my degree I am able to advance in the DoD Acquisition Career Field. The materials Trident offered were perfect for this career. I highly recommend Trident to anyone who plans on working for DoD or any other federal or state agency.

Easy Degree - Borderline Worthless This was a colossal waste of time in terms of the quality of the education. Here is the positive, the only positive, it is regionally accredited. That being said, I was able to take my worthless BSHS and apply (and get accepted) into a credible state university system for a Masters program. I started with Trident, back when it was Touro. I took a class and ended up being deployed half way through. They were kind enough to allow me to withdraw, without any financial obligations. Several years later (about 4 years), I retook the class. The background readings, labeled as current, were exactly the same as they were 4 years prior. In fact, not a single aspect of the course or materials changed in that time. Further proof of the inadequacy of the program, I spent an average of one hour writing each of my essays. My overall GPA, 3.8. I spent less than 12 hours TOTAL on an entire course and never received a grade lower than 3.0. This would be fine, for the lazy, if the degree mattered. I used to put the degree on resume, until I started to notice I received more job offers when I submitted a resume without the degree listed. After several interviews, I found the interviewers looked at the degree negatively. ALL IS NOT LOST! Some schools will allow you transfer in credit from Trident. If you have already started, apply to a state university. Many, most in fact, state universities have 100% online schools. Their degree programs are legitimate and employers will view them as an asset. Avoid TUI.

Outstanding experience I had a tremendous experience with The faculty and Administrators. I am not sure if the University treat Military students any different, I just this that being in the Military and finishing your Degree at the same time while interacting with our Brothers and Sisters in Arms was an absolute help. It has to be how much you want it and how grateful you are to be able to afford it. You get the same education online without putting up with other peoples quirks. I took a few classes at a reputable brick and Mortar and in one of my classes the one young lady came in the class late for the entire semester and then her demeanor became distracting for everyone, that's when I decided the a traditional education was not for me. I appreciated the help of all of my Professors who was always helpful in pointing me in the right direction to find the answer, most importantly is how much of a dedicated student/human being you are. The key to success is education, volunteerism, mentorship, encouragement. It was not easy but very rewarding so Thanks you Faculty and Staff of Trident University. Joseph Persaud, MBA - Log Mgt.

Trident is good and worth the effort! I had a very good exerience at Trident University, and had no financial aid issues. Additionally, the instructors were very helpful, and always responded to my request. Significantly, the program is challenging, and it is not for people that are unmotivated. However, the staff will work with students that have issues that impede their ability to complete the assignments, but most of the research associated with the online format comes from you. No spoon feeding here, and if you are the type of student that is self-motivated, then you will do well here. I was able to complete the curriculm in one year and five months, with nothing but diligent time management, and it paid off with a Summa Cum Laude ranking! You'll do the same if you are serious about the learning experience and have some experience in the health care field. Good luck to all!

You get back what you put into it! Great School I just completed my BSITM after a little over 2 years and i'm glad I chose Trident. Forget all about the negative reviews that you see, its all about what you put into it. My experience with the school had been nothing but pleasant and the staff is top notch. With my extremely busy schedule b between work and home life Trident offered me the flexibility to succeed... and I did! At 42 years old I think I know a thing or two and a Doctorate professor from another school once told me that a "degree is a degree no matter where it came from, what you do with it is all that matters". So if you are looking for a school that will challenge you, I recommend Trident University. Best of luck!

More Disappointing as the Years Go By. The work is too easy and it is hard to stay focused. The online material is good. The teachers are usually poor and distant or nonexistent. The customer support is only helpful if it is helping themselves.

Change of Catologue I am trying amazed with the support they are always on top of it. I wonder about the catalogue changes, as I am one class away from completing my degree program. It's okay I think it will work itself out as it always does. I do enjoy the school as I am also attending another school for another degree. The staff was and still is friendly, and even in brick and mortar schools you get people who can be brash on occasion. Having said that; Trident University continues to meet my needs as a working professional and I hope they will continue to do so in the near future.

Good and Bad...Disappointment I loved this college in the beginning. Now, I feel cheated. The first time I attended, FA screwed up and caused me to have to pay for 3 classes that should have been covered. I fought for about a year and half. After realizing I would lose that argument, I re-enrolled. I tried to switch majors before the cutoff time but my advisor failed to submit my paperwork, failed to add my new classes, failed to drop the classes I didn't need, and left me stuck with 4 upper-level classes in a major I'm no longer interested in.

Unprofessional Staff I was two classes away from completing an MBA in HR and I have walked away from TUI. The only reason this "school" exits is because of the militarys TA program. Cut TA and the post 911 G.I. Bill benefits, and these guys go away. I have stared over a Baylor. Best decision I ever made.

Horrible financial aid support I did enjoy the course work even though it was intense but I started to get discouraged when my financial aid continually was at a standstill. After three months and no word on whether or not it was going to be resolved I bombed everything. Now I have to pay the $2000 back and have no credit achieved at all!! Very disappointed!! Would not recommend this school to anyone unless they are military and using military financial aid coverage. Then be ready to write a lot of papers!!!!

Excellent value! I recently completed the MSHS degree and it took me 32 months. This program was as difficult as comparable programs at brick and mortar State Universities and took about as long. I worked extremely hard and graduated with honors. The professors were thoughtful but did not give away grades, and they do not spoon feed you but were always available to answer questions. The advantages of TUI is relatively low cost and they provide all the learning materials which means no texts to purchase! You can literally go anywhere in the world with a laptop and internet access and complete your degee and pay as you go. My money was well spent!

too hard for what it is The school presents itself as a wonderful one but they make a lot of mistakes, my supervisor wrote English very poor with lots of mistakes, she would forget from one email to another what she had told me and was not consistent. It was a "guessing game" for me totally inconsistent. The courses are easy to do but the dissertation is a trap and a costly one. The online platform is very old and doesn't work, allays full of mistakes and things that do not work. It feels like a business and not a university. I just ow hope the money (huge amount) and time I put into it will be worthy now that I finally got my PhD

Good Program Overall Overall, the school met my needs in regards to flexibility and course study. My major issue and I am quite sure this occurs at other institutions was that many professors often took too long to respond back to the assignments submitted. My other issue was with the financial department. Being a veteran of the military entitles members to discounted tuition. I made a point on two occasions to ensure that my assigned academic advisor had a copy of my DD214 for any financial discounts. Not until after I received a different counselor who actually researched the item for me did I find out that I had been paying almost $400 more per course than I should have. This was rectified however I only had approximately five courses left before program completion. The department would not allow me to recoup any of the funds in which I overpaid even though I could supply written documentation of the advisors mistake. I do have to say, the new academic advisor did attempt to assist me as much as possible during the process. Other than that, the coursework did fit well within my schedule and the discussion boards I felt were the best parts of the class. I am in the process of selecting an institution to pursue my doctorate and I have to be honest and say that TUI is not on the list for consideration largely in part due to many of the student ratings that I have viewed of the program I would like to pursue; they are not very favorable in various areas,but particularly in the dissertation phase of the program which to me is the most important phase.

Online vs. Traditional If you had the choice of going/joining a very popular gym like LA Fitness or a less popular local gym (both creditable) and they both offer the BASIC things to get you in shape, which one would you pick? If they both offer the latest most up to date workout equipment and provide safe amenities such as secure parking, lockers and a motivational supportive environment would it be adequate and persuasive in earning the results you are determined to achieve? The difference is with LA Fitness you may have a much nicer and larger facility but also more policy along with cost. You MUST be there at a set time for workout classes or a excellent trainer (this is like physically being in class). Which can be why some people need the interaction and motivation of instructors and peers to succeed. On the other hand the local gym may not have “on-site” trainers/instructors instead they periodically provide guidance to direct you and check up on you to answer any questions and see if your ok. This type of gym may not provide intense weight training or Zumba class’s everyday but it has other people like you who are motivated and willing to share their knowledge of exercising safely and efficiently as well. With this gym it is open 24 hours so you can work out and use resources whenever you like, perfect for the self-motivated and busy life style person. As an example, now think of these gyms as UCLA (LA Fitness) and University of Phoenix (Planet Fitness or similar) or a Ford vs. Lexus, they are both cars and built to do the same thing (get you from point to point) except one has more bells and whistles than the other. My analogy illustrates that no matter what gym (educational institution) you choose if you use it well and you put in the work you will get AT LEAST the same BASIC results out of it but this in itself can be opinion so to each his own. It has been my experience that someone can explain how to do something but YOU have to be the one to do the actual work and that is no matter where you go….online or traditional, Ivy-league or regular school, Chevy or Mercedes not every can afford but considering the (your) situation you do get what you pay for. As a side note even more traditional schools are going online so I believe the quality of education is excellent. So I see now the competition of online learning is the question if one really better than the other? It guess it just depends.

Great School This college is a great institution. The way it is make you do research papers, ensures that you will not forget what you have learned. This is not some i study and take the test and forget school. I was able to be in an environment and hold conversations with people about certain things, that i know in the past i would've just sat there with my mouth closed. Yea i was skeptical also about going to this online school but it is accredited by the WASC just like USC, UCLA and Stanford which or all top notch colleges. This college is legit. So before you down play this institution go your research.

Unfair grading system I am currently a student and I am looking elsewhere to complete my degree. It is hard to challenge a grade and so whatever your final grade your professor gives is the final grade is going to be a firm. Even if you think you did great and worked hard, you will not ever get an unbiased third party to review your coursework and re-grade it. So, I advise that you seek elsewhere for your college degree. Also, they don't provide textbooks or enough information to complete case studies effectively.

If I had only known…. I have been contemplating writing this review for a long time. Today I decided that it is time to stop procrastinating and maybe help someone else. I have been in the PhD program for the past 4 years. I have finished all the courses and am now working on my dissertation. I would like to share with you a few insights I have now that might have helped me make a more educated decision five years ago when I was looking for a university. 1. The total price of your PhD is not a constant but rather a variable. In my case, the University raised my tuition twice over 4 years resulting in a 40% increase in total price. This is in spite the fact that they specifically assured me that they have no plan to change tuition in the foreseen future. Naturally,

after I had started, I could not change course. 2. The time frame of your PhD is also flexible and not necessarily in a good way. While the rate of your courses is up to you, once you get to the stage of working on your dissertation, you are in the hands of your committee. In my case, I can report that the pace is unbearably slow. On average, I invest about 3 days of work for every month of waiting for feedback. If you are not in any kind of hurry, that might be fine. If on the other hand you have other things you would like to do in your lifetime, this pace is not beneficial to your mental or financial health. 3. The dropout rate is very high. Although it is difficult for me to assess exactly what the rate is because people take courses at a different pace, I can none the less tell you that in the first courses we had 15 to 20 students yet at the finish courses we were only 3. Besides for being lonely at the top, it is also disconcerting to learn that in retrospect your statistical chances of making it to the end are not good at all. You could come to the conclusion that this is proof that the process is serious and rigors. You could also arrive at other conclusions. I will let your imagination wander… 4. Although almost all the professors I have been in contact with over the past 4 years have been courteous and helpful to some degree, I have had more than a few situations where I got the feeling that my success at achieving the goal of attaining a PhD, was not very high on the list of - Turo International / TUI / Trident – objectives. I am not saying that they were interested in me NOT finishing my degree. It was more a flavor of indifference. When comparing this attitude with what I heard from my friends in other PhD programs at other universities, I know that this aspect leaves much to be desired. All in all, I have learned an unbelievable quantity of stuff. I also have no doubt that much has been accomplished. On the other hand I feel that the path was not what I had expected. Hopefully I will reach the finish line in my lifetime and maybe I will update this review then. In the meantime, I am left wondering whether looking back, I would do it all again.

Mixed Feelings I completed their BSHS. As a wife, mother, and Soldier it worked for my demanding lifestyle. I sometimes wonder if I made the right decision. When I tell people I received my degree from Trident they look at me as if I'm speaking a foreign language. You definitely get what you give. You basically teach yourself the content via research and background readings. If you aren't self-motivated this school is definitely not for you. I want to do their MSHS, but I'm concerned about how it will be accepted in the civilian sector. I prefer online learning because of its portability, but I'd like to go to a "traditional" school.

Demanding program I've been working on my PhD and very close to finishing now. I graduated from undergrad and grad programs from brick and mortar schools in the top 5% of my graduating classes. I chose TUI because I work full time and couldn't afford to stop my life for a few years to get a doctorate. What I learned is immeasurable and the skills I can apply to work and enhance my career. I have only good things to say about this school.

Follow the Syllabus and you will learn Material: Its available, there is mandatory materila and suggested material. If you complete everything, you will learn. Teachers: Some are good, some are great, it all depends on you. You feed them educated information, you will get educated responses. All that i have had have PHDs not from TUI, and seem to have exceptional resumes. Institution: Ask yourself what you want out of an online university, being in the military i have attended a total of six Colleges, i setted on TUI because of flexibility, availability and a sense that the staff cares. Support: Sometimes i get emails asking questions or giving me information, the same inforamtion that i have gotten from others, it seems like they aren't communicating sometimes, but i have always got good and the right informaiton and communication. Value: Its not cheap, its not expensive. However, just before graduation they raised prices above the military tuition assistance caps. Use of Technology: They have a fairly nice online setup to include outlook mail. Overall: It is perfect for my career, schedule and finances. Like i said before, i have attended a total of 6 Colleges, t his one fits perfect for me. Just make sure you do ALL the work, not just required work and you will get allot out of each course.

Horrible at best I will never attend this college again total nightmare. They are very slow with everything. No books all you do is write papers. I did not learn anything attending school here. If you are lazy this is the place to be. The school sets deadlines for assignments but they actually give you to the end of the semester which is astonishing. I worked hard to get all my assignments in on time then you have others who turn in work late with no repercussions. If you want to be prepared for your career and be knowledgable please do your self a favor and go to another college.

Excellent School This is a very good school. I see a lot of posts that there are not enough instructors for the courses. How many instructors does someone need for each class? I agree that you get what you put into each class. If everyone hasn't realized, taking classes online is the way the majority of colleges are going. Any question that I have asked the instructor was answered in a professional and timely manner. They are flexible with everyone's busy schedule. I always recommend this school to anyone continueing their education.

unprofessional I was researching this school for my daughter. We did not enroll her. The *Admissions* person we spoke with on a few occasions, was very unprofessional, and did not seem to know anything. He sounded very uneducated and kept trying to get other information out of me--that made me very uneasy. I felt very skeptical of this school. There was always lots of other *noise* in the background as if this was a *call center*. The two times we set up a phone appointment, he called 1.5 hrs late. Very unprofessional. Do lots of research before deciding.

Self-Taught Curriculum I finished my MBA degree in spring of 2012. The coursework is challenging and the basic MBA concepts seem to be in the curriculum, but I agree with many others that web links cannot replace text books. So many times I wished for a text book; however, most of the time you can find what you need online. Just be careful to use reputable sources. The instructors are a joke. Only one instructor, out of all my classes, took the time to answer my questions with any substance. The rest seem to have a universal canned-response list from which they draw. I can get that from a computer program designed to "teach." There were times when I would attempt to expand on a subject (if for no other reason than to deepen my knowledge) and I may as well have been talking to the dogs next door. I would send questions to teachers and never, ever receive a response, so I just had to move on and figure it all out. You do get the distinct feeling that some of the instructors don't even read your work. Text book and teacher issues aside, you can, in the end, obtain a passable understanding of business concepts. But only if you take the assignments seriously and do entirely original work, like I did. Attempt to understand all of the lesson plans on a deep level and you will walk away with basics you need to operate in the real world. But don't expect your knowledge level to be on par with someone who graduated from a top-tier, on-the-ground business school. It won't be, trust me. As far as the student body, you won't be surrounded by geniuses. The admission standard is about as low as it can be for an accredited school. I know from experience that this factor drives down the quality of education. Most people who attend this online school are not interested in deep thinking (although some are). Instead, they are everyday, practical-thinking people who only want to make it through the day (or lesson) and move on. Bottom line, don't expect to have any deep, barrier-expanding discussions in the online forums. 90 percent of the posts made in the forums are useless; mere rehashes of lesson concepts already covered. Overall, as a square-filler, this degree will work in many circles of employers. For some employers, you won't get in the door if where you got your degree matters to them. On the bright side, you will, like I stated before, significantly increase your understanding of business if you follow the lessons and immerse yourself in the subject matter (which is what the school intends for you to do anyway).

DISASTER?? The sad fact is some people are not cut out for college, consider dropping out of TUI a blessing and move on. Everything is not everyone else s fault - take responsibility for what you do and keep the insults local where they should be. REALITY: For the potential MBA students out there (like me), I checked and they did not lose their regional accreditation. BUT they did appear to have some issues that are getting attention since the regional accreditor's website downgraded the severity of their inquiry.

Great Learning Experience I just completed my BSBA with TUI and I will tell you that I learned alot. I really got a since of accomplishment because I had to put in a lot of work to finish with a 3.72 GPA. The courses are definitely "failable" if you don't take the time to research and turn in quality work. This school is great because it gives those of us defending the country so that others can attend ivy league schools an opportunity to get a quality education from an regionally accredited school. I don't know about anyone else but I EARNED my bachelors from TUI and I'm proud of the goal I've met while defending this great country. Thanks TUI.

Very impressed I have had a mostly positive experience with this school. I agree with a lot of previous posts who say you get out of it what you put into it. I have learned a lot here. I went to a traditional school for my bachelor's and I believe I get more out of TUI's program. Also, the graduate certificate I earned in instructional design qualified me for the Air Force GS-12 civil-service position I am now in. I will say that I, like many people, was a little concerned with the whole accreditation debacle. I and am still somewhat uneasy about it, but I do feel like they were transparent and forthcoming while dealing with it and I remain confident that they won't have those problems again. The only two concerns I have are regarding the course material. I will agree with the reviewers who say that there is much to be desired in this area. I personally think TUI should have an on-line e-book store so students have some solid references while taking courses. The links to free internet sites are OK as supplemental sources, but there should be textbooks (e-books). If anything, it would give students a better foundation of the various topics before venturing out into the virtual databases. Second, there are numerous grammatical/spelling errors through out the course material. I have addressed this every session, but it does not seem to change. Why is this? Despite those two concerns, my TUI exerience has been very positive and I would recommend it to others.

Waste of Time and Money If all you want is a degree with no benefit go for it. A for effort is the motto. Switched to a real school and took 3.5 months for them to release the transcript. Almost kept me from being able to attend new school. They barely kept their status as an accredited school by the skin of their teeth. Do not attend unless you are just checking the box.

Honest review Honestly, this school is like any other school you attend. Whether its Cal State Fullerton, UCLA etc. You get what you put into it. I feel the emphasis is placed quick to the point, which is fine with me. Saves me time. Alot of my peers earned their degrees from big universities, Oklahoma State University, Washington State, etc. when I ask them if they recall what they learned most of them say no. So in a sense, I think placing an emphasis on the main subject will help retain the knowledge learned. It helps me thats for sure. The timelines, the assignments are perfect for a working adult, or military like myself. I have attended other online colleges and I can attest that its quite difficult being in the military and taking college at the same time. But with TUI, its actually possible to accomplish a degree, sure it won't be a "brand" name like other schools but an accredited degree is better than no degree in this age in time.

This school is a SCAM.. I will honestly tell you guys the truth. I was at my last term at this school and didn't finish because they said I didn't take out any loans that was supposed to pay for my tuition while I was attending. I was a transfer student and always have used student loans to pay for my education Now owe them $3,500.00 which have damage my credit rating. I am a college student I don't have a job. good news i am now attending a local real university and graduating this December had not any problems with my student aid ......HINT...go to real accredited university.

PhD Higher Ed Leadership I have a BA and an MA from two of the toughest schools in the nation. Soon beginning the dissertation stage of my PhD in Higher Ed Leadership. I can tell you point blank that if you follow the program and do as you are requested, you will work you butt off. The program is rigorous, the professors are excellent (had only one who was so so) and you have to produce at a high level or you will not get through the program with a decent GPA. Many brick and mortar schools would be proud to be half as good as TUI.

GOOD SCHOOL I liked this school it served me well. I do find it strange that some comments, especially the negative ones seem to be written by the same person. This school has graduated many individuals; just because one person is angry doesn’t mean the school should be dismissed in its entirety.

Go somewhere else I took 2 classes and being in the military didn't help. Due to current ops I wasn't able to complete some of the assignments since I wasn't able to "interview" someone in the field of nursing. I emailed both professors and after 4 weeks got a reply. I wasn't able to complete the course and am trying to get a "try again" thru them. The material on the cd's was horrible...just links, no material. Seriously?? Come on I don't always have access to the internet and would like to read out in the field. Also the navigation through their site was garbage. Won't take another class through them again. For Profit = Garbage. DeVry was the same way.

On Probation...Because It SUCKS! The course assignments apparently are written by people in some foreign country where English is not the native language. Such concepts of "subject" and "verb" apparently are not important enough to incorporate in the material. Unless you are clairvoyant it is impossible to know what you are required to do to complete your assignments. Perhaps they are relying on the fact that most of the students are military and thus used to following blindly the incomprehensible orders of idiots. Unless you speak ebonics or comprehend pidgin English, AVOID THIS PLACE AT ALL COSTS!

"Doctoral granting reasearch oriented university" - really means FOR PROFIT at your educational expense This school is nothing but a joke. It has an excellent marketing department that will fool you to thinking it's a real school. Bottom line - the "professors" that work here are lazy and selfish. They have zero interest in teaching you anything. For only $1400 you get a CD sent to you with a bunch of plagarized material and free internet links. Using all this "great material" you get to write a glorified 4th grade book report. The "professors" then give you the rubber stamp "A" that they are directed to give out. NO ONE WILL FAIL, or get below a "B". Do not be fooled by the sneaky salesmen. This school only wants to make money for its' parent FOR PROFIT company. There is no desire for this school to be more educationally desirable. It recently got its' WASC accreditation threatened, and now is on probation. Its' slimy sales "professors" are telling everyone TUI is working towards its' AACSB accreditation (a BALD FACE LIE). Bottom line --- if you are enlisted in the armed forces you are free money to TUI, and then send their slimey scum to try and convince you that you need this crappy education. You won't learn anything you can't get by surfing the interent about let's say an "MBA". That's all TUI did. It is a SAD state of affairs. This school is SCUM through and through. It's also furloughing professors and full time staff on Fridays (not enough suckers buying their product). Go to a community college or a high school or anywhere else. Even go to UOP. TUI is plain crap. Just trying to be real.

Avoid it if you can The staff is lazy and everyone give conflicting information. The one student one stop and FA are the worst. You have to call again and again before you can get the right answer. And for a 1000 dollars a class they should offer book not links to web pages that have nothing to do with the class or assignment.

An Extremely Demanding Regionally Accredited Program I am employed at an executive level and am no slouch, have earned only one C in my undergraduate work at another regionally accredited school, no C’s in my Masters Degree at yet another regionally accredited school, and am working very hard to get through the Trident University International Ph.D. program which is extremely challenging. There aren’t many of us left. People who were able to earn Masters degrees just couldn’t transition to more demanding rubrics. The program is rigorous, yet the staff are very supportive. I wouldn’t trade this experience nor what I am learning for anything in the world. There is not anything you could post on the Internet that some are not going to love and someone else hate. The only cost of blogging is your time and some folks just have an axe to grind. A Trident Ph.D. is a great value, but is not cheap in terms of required time and commitment. I can’t speak for Trident’s undergraduate nor other graduate programs as I have not had the pleasure of having attended them.

Sub-standard school. For-Profit mindset. AVOID if you can. After taking two classes and reading the caliber of mandatory 'posts' from these so-called screened students - I must say, this school is for the unwashed / uneducated masses that think they need this sort of education. The 'teaching' that goes on is sub-standard to super poor. The assignments are book-reports that are graded too easily (I tested - several times - these professors with my own 'easter eggs' in the papers. Bottom line - they don't read the papers and give out Bs or As). The material given is an absolute J O K E. Also, the credibility of this degree is in SERIOUS question. I have several peers that completed this 'Education' and have not been able to get through promised 'doors' Trident's evil marketing team sells. Unfortunately this school is a bottom feeding for-profit (making a lion share of it's money from the government/military). AVOID at all costs. Your local community college is cheaper and gives you a better education (I've tried both Trident and CC -- it is a fact). If you want a degree handed to you for no effort, and minimum learning, Trident is the way to go.
