Student Disclosures

Trident is committed to providing information and disclosures to help prospective students make an informed decision about their educational options. The information provided on this page is intended to further that effort.

Information about program and University policies, including admissions, academics, transfer credit, financial aid, and graduation requirements can be found in the Trident University catalog.

Consumer Information, sometimes referred to as Student Right to Know information, is provided as required by the U.S. Department of Education. Consistent with these requirements, we report and disclose certain information in a clear, prominent, user-friendly, and easily understood manner. This information is available on this website; currently enrolled learners, faculty and staff receive an email notice regarding the availability of this information annually by July 1. Information is provided to prospective students and employees as required by the U.S. Department of Education. A paper copy is available upon request.

Students who wish to process a grievance or perceive that their rights may have been denied may seek assistance through the University Ombudsman’s Office. The Ombudsman staff is responsible for answering student inquiries and serving as a liaison between the student and university departments. Additional details about this process and the University grievance procedure, including contact information, are available.

We offer Federal Pell Grants and Federal Direct Loans for eligible students. In addition to multiple eligibility criteria, students must be United States citizens, permanent residents or eligible non-citizens as defined on the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA®).

Student Loan Cohort Default Rate (CDR)

The Cohort Default Rate (CDR) is a percentage of borrowers who entered repayment and then defaulted on their loan. This figure is calculated using data over a three year period. The National Student Loan Cohort Default Rate is calculated by the US Department of Education and published annually.

The most current (FY20) cohort default rates were significantly impacted by the pause on federal student loan payments that began March 13, 2020. During the pause, borrowers with ED-held student loans were not required to make any payments, and no borrowers with ED-held loans entered default. The System’s default rate for 2020 is 0%.
