With over 6 years of active duty service I have accomplished more than I could have ever hoped for. I have earned my very first bachelors degree with TUI and hope to obtain my Dual Masters in Business and Health Administration with them in the near future. All of this is thanks to TUI for their flexibility, dedication, and availability to make this happen. Their staff is both professional and their faculty of professors and doctors are knowledgeable. Thank you so much TUI for helping me reach my goals!

TUI was the most educational online institution in 2011. Everything about the school worked for the military student. What can I say about Trident today….Here is the downfall as a Veteran I have learned that in 2017 Trident University International had used misleading information to recruit “survivors” who have Post-9/11 GI Bill benefits. Survivors are the children of a father or mother who was killed while on active duty and their widows or husbands. Trident was sold and merged shortly after this became public and General Looney, General Metz and CSM William J. Gainey were replaced with AIU Board members and Trident was merged into American Intercontinental University who the VA intends to suspend enrollment of new GI Bill students ASAP. (After careful review and consideration of findings provided by the Federal Trade Commission and State Attorneys General Offices, VA has concluded there is sufficient evidence to support a finding that these schools have Ripped off Vets.)
Every course is completed online, so you have to be a self-motivated individual to keep pace and be able to teach yourself the couresework. The professors are all very helpful and will introduce great questions that the students will respond to.

The cost per credit hour is kind of expensive but FAFSA helped me cover most of my expenses after military tuition assistance. For undergraduate programs, each course is $250 per hour/$1000 per course. For graduate, each course is $325 per hour/$1300 per course.
