Frequently Asked Questions

  • How is this tuition discount possible with Trident U?

    Trident University looks for innovative ways to help students finish their degree faster and for less. Due to OnlineDegree.com’s position as a non-collegiate alternative program with academic rigor equivalent to college credit, they’ve agreed to partner with us to provide a unique bridge for students to get back to school.  All of the 15 college-level courses offered at OnlineDegree.com have been reviewed and verified by Trident. The courses provide 44 units of available credit that could be applied towards your degree…tuition-free. In addition to credit, they’ve also offered all OnlineDegree.com enrolled students a 10% discount on tuition regardless of any courses you complete or apply towards your degree. You can get the discount when you enroll at Trident by mentioning you are an OnlineDegree.com student, or via a form when you’re logged in at OnlineDegree.com.

  • What are the terms or limitations for Trident’s tuition discount?

    The 10% tuition discount applies to both bachelors or master’s degrees and a 5% discount for doctoral degrees.  1. No tuition credit, repayment, or refund shall be made for or to any  student relating to classes enrolled in or attended prior to the first session post-effective date (in other words, the tuition discount doesn’t apply to prior tuition you already paid for)and 2. students are not entitled to any other tuition reductions and are subject to all Trident policies and requirements applicable to other students.  Pretty simple!

  • Does the Trident Tuition Discount Apply to Masters or Doctoral Degrees as Well?

    Yes! The 10% tuition discount applies to both bachelors or master’s degrees and they offer a 5% discount for doctoral degrees.

  • Can I combine received units from OnlineDegree.com with other units when I enroll at Trident U?

    Check with an enrollment advisor at Trident University. OnlineDegree.com has 44 units available through it’s courses that could apply. You’ll want to inquire with a Trident U advisor though to confirm which courses could best apply to your specific major or degree of interest, and how they combine with other units you’ve earned.

  • Which OnlineDegree.com courses could apply towards my degree at Trident University?

    You can view the course mapping here. Although 15 courses at OnlineDegree.com can be accepted for a total of 44 credits, your particular major/degree will dictate which courses can specifically be applied though. Check with an enrollment advisor at Trident.  You can also view our general Transfer Guide for more details.

  • Is OnlineDegree.com Really Free?

    Yep! It’s free to take as many courses as you want. Our goal is to make college more affordable and approachable for the millions of people that want to go to school. We’ve made sure it’s accessible to everyone regardless of their financial situation. Enroll in as many as you’d like.

  • Are There Prerequisities or Things I Need To Learn Before Enrolling?

    No! All of our college-level courses are introductory and meant for beginners without backgrounds in the particular subjects. You don’t need to prepare, or take anything before.  As long as you have your GED/High School Diploma, you can just register, choose the courses you want, and begin learning.

  • Are There Any 3rd-Party Fees?

    It’s completely free to take all of the courses, the textbooks, and generate a transcript. However, when you take a final exam, a 3rd-party online proctoring service, RPNow, needs to monitor you to make sure there’s no cheating. It’s standard practice for all online testing at the college-level. We’ve negotiated the fee on your behalf, and they will only charge you a small fee of $9. OnlineDegree.com though doesnt charge you anything for taking as many courses as you’d like…no fees or tuition, ever, period.

  • Are There Schedules or Set Class Times for OnlineDegree.com Courses?

    Nope! No class schedules, and no fixed times. Our courses are available anytime, and completely self-paced. We understand how busy adults are, and we’ve created our system to accomodate anyone’s schedule. Our system always keeps track of your progress…grab a sandwich, go see a movie, etc. When you come back online, you’ll pick up right where you left off.

  • Does This Guarantee I’ll Be Accepted at an Eventual University?

    No, no one can guarantee your acceptance other than the actual university where you’re applying. They always have the final decision. Each university has different guidelines and requirements on how they admit students into their school. This can include GPA, SAT/ACT scores, extracurricular activities you’ve participated in, etc. At many universities, transfer students have higher rates of acceptance vs freshman enrolling out of high school. That means earning units at a community college or through OnlineDegree.com can potentially increase your odds of getting into the school you want. Ask the eventual university where you’re applying to find out what things they take into consideration.

  • Does OnlineDegree.com “grant credit”?

    Remember that OnlineDegree.com is not a university and does not and cannot “grant credit” – the option to grant credit always belongs to the college or university and will further depend on whether a course fits into your degree program. Our goal at OnlineDegree.com is to help you receive credit at a university by taking our free college-level courses. We want to save students time and money to get their degree. To do that, we work with a number of participating accredited universities who’ve agreed to recognize our courses directly, and our courses have also earned a recommendation for credit from the National College Credit Recommendation Service (NCCRS) who’s recommendations are considered by over 1400 universities and colleges nationwide in their network.

  • What If I’m an International Student Outside of the United States?

    Sorry, we’re not yet able to accept international students living outside of the United States.  Currently, OnlineDegree.com is available to U.S. citizens (living in or outside of the U.S.), or international students living within the United States.

    We’re working on it, and we’ll update the site soon when things have changed.
