Welcome to Trident University
Founded in 1998 and based in Cypress, California, Trident University is an accredited online university striving to serve all members of the U.S. military family. TUI offers high-quality Baccalaureate, Master's and Doctoral degrees and pioneered the world-renowned Robust Learning Model (RLM), which employs proven case-based and applied online learning methodologies.
This innovative approach to education successfully empowers college students to acquire critical thinking and strategic skills that can enhance their lives and can further their careers. Our focus is on quality teaching and outcomes, which is why more than 90% of our faculty have earned a Ph.D. or the highest equivalent degree in the fields they teach. Adhering to high academic standards, TUI is among the leading online universities accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC).
TUI is positive affirmation that our faculty and staff can make a genuine difference in a student’s life by becoming an advocate for the pursuit and attainment of a Bachelor’s, Master’s or Doctoral degree. We do this by educating students about university degree programs; by giving them the tools they need to succeed no matter where they may be stationed or deployed; by inspiring them to reach higher and achieve academic goals; by giving them the freedom and flexibility to choose from eight different online university course sessions through each year; and by celebrating when they succeed.
When students “learn how to learn,” they acquire knowledge and skills, when they feel empowered by results, confidence grows and they have a greater ability to achieve goals.
