Who We Are


Welcome to Trident University

Founded in 1998 and based in Cypress, California, Trident University is an 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 students to acquire critical thinking and strategic skills that can enhance their lives and can further their careers. At TUI 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, Trident University is 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 online Bachelor’s, Master’s or Doctoral degree. We do this by educating students about their education and their options; 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 their goals; by giving them the freedom and flexibility to choose from eight different online course sessions through each year; and by celebrating when they succeed. 

When students “learn how to learn,” when they acquire new knowledge and skills, when they feel empowered by results, their self-esteem soars, their confidence grows and they can have a greater ability to achieve their goals.
