A nightmare from the beginning! The enrollment, registration and FA process is filled with many unknowledgeable staff members sending you on a wild goose chase. Courses fill fast, finding online courses relevant to your need after the first day of registration is near impossible. Being an adult learner, who has gone to other colleges outside of the area - I feel as if Trident's focus is NOT on education. Maybe if we focused on education, apposed to getting extra credit hours out of students the experience would be better.

Trident Technical College has a wonderful faculty that are experienced, friendly, and willing to help. There are several resources to guide you through your education path. The thing I like the most about Trident Tech is the warm, inviting environment in the classrooms, and the locations of several campuses.
