    This school is a really good way to continue your education and a cheap way. The teachers actually takes their time to make sure you are learning everything. And it allows you to graduate and not have to worry about future student loans. Or any debts.

    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.
