    Make sure to always check online for a lot of assignments, because they will put them up for you to see and the prospective deadline. Trident Technical College also has maintenance days they worn you about also, so pay attention to those.

    Be ready to triple check everything, and get everything in writing. Trident is known for miscommunication between offices so you have to be very diligent as a student. One person in an office will tell you one thing but another will say the opposite. Don't right out believe what the first trip to the registrar's/financial aid/ business offices has to say. Make sure to be annoying and follow up mulitple times or they will come back and try to screw you over yet you've already been in their office 10 times before for the same questions trying to ensure you dont get screwed. They need to communicate better amongst themselves. Also they have programs with other colleges but those colleges don't work together to help students, you have to be your own advocate and badger everyone but sometimes you still get screwed.

    They use a fast-track or compressed schedule that is more like a quarter system than a semester system. You take fewer classes that run 7 weeks, but still end up with a similar semester-load compared with semester-based schedules.

    Trident is a great college. The new compressed schedule may cause some stress due to classes being shorter, but my advice would be to not fall behind. There is learning center where the tutors are more than happy to help fellow students. There is a program called Scholar's Network that have advisers who are friendly and willingly to help you out.

    If you take online, do everything you can in the shortest amount of days because tests are open book. Nothing is hard either just take a lot of notes. You will have to spend the other days arguing with your teachers about your wrong grade. try sceenshotting the questions or writing down questions you find weird after you take the test to show to them what is wrong. If you are on campus, don't be unless you are a medical, technical, media design or cyber security student because the teachers and classrooms for everyone else really suck. Also take advantage of the free gym, but don't be walking around that area at night unless you want to be mugged.
