June 5, 2015 – Cypress, CA – Throughout the spring, several Trident University International (Trident) graduates will be acknowledged at individual ceremonies held at military bases both in United States and internationally. Held on an annual basis, these events are organized for active duty servicemembers who are graduating from a broad spectrum of colleges and universities, but are unable to attend their respective in-person graduation events. Trident is proud to be represented by its graduates and staff at these ceremonies around the world.
Locations where ceremonies have already been held include Army base Fort Sam Houston in San Antonio, TX on May 8th, Hickam Air Force Base in Pearl Harbor, HI on May 15th, and Naval Station Norfolk in Norfolk, VA on May 28th, which was attended by Trident Strategic Military & Community Relations Manager (SMCRM) Emanuel Sepulveda. Upcoming events include a ceremony at Fort Benning in Fort Benning, GA on June 5th, which will be attended by Trident SMCRM James Shiver.
I could not be more grateful to the unrivaled staff at Trident University for providing us with this once in a lifetime opportunity. Please continue doing the great job you alone can best perform for the military students and for all.Elliot J. Robles, Trident Alumnus
Trident's official 2015 Graduation Ceremony will be held on Saturday, July 25th at the Terrace Theater in Long Beach, CA. As in years past, this event will feature contributions from notables within the Trident community, helping to make this a noteworthy occasion for graduates and their families. This event will be livestreamed as a service for those who are unable to attend.
The 100% online Trident, which has been in operation since 1998, is regionally accredited by the Senior College and University Commission of the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC). Active duty, reserve, and National Guard servicemembers make up 66% of the University's population, and Trident is proud to employ several veterans at the faculty, staff, and management levels.
This year Trident has been recognized as a "Top School" in the 2015 Military Advanced Education Guide to Colleges & Universities and was named a 2015 Military Friendly® School by Victory Media, the fourth time the University has been recognized as such.
