    Trident is pretty cheap and the Associate's Degree will transfer to any four year college, so you can save money and still get a degree.

    With many tuition assistance opportunities and wide variety of classes, you complete much of your bachelor's coursework before transferring to a 4-year school.

    Trident Tech is a good option if money is an issue. You can save money by attending your first two years here and then transfer to a 4 year college of your choice. I had a great experience here so far and I am planning to transfer to a 4 year university.
