Welcome Trident Students and Alumni
We are excited to announce that Trident is officially a part of American InterContinental University (AIU). Our goal is to provide you a seamless transition as you continue with your program of study. We are committed to protecting the unique Trident learning experience and the culture of strength and resilience that we have built.
AIU is a regionally accredited university founded nearly 50 years ago on the premise that education should be more than theory-based, it should provide students with a curriculum that helps them prepare to pursue their professional interests. They are the partner we have been looking for to expand our operations and show more students what it means to be “Trident Strong.”
Why is American Intercontinental University the right fit?
AIU is a regionally accredited university founded in 1970 on the premise that education should be more than theory-based; it should provide students with a curriculum that helps them prepare to pursue their professional interests. Today, AIU operates campuses in Atlanta and Houston and offers programs online (which they have been doing for 18 years). They currently offer programs in business, criminal justice, education, information technology, design and healthcare management. In addition, they have made a substantial investment in their online student platform, including mobile phone apps for both students and faculty for which they recently won technology awards.
They are the partner we have been looking for to help grow and expand what we have built here at Trident. AIU has significant financial resources and expertise to invest in critical areas that will continue to drive sustainability and advance our commitment to continuous improvement in the student experience.
