Default College changed names after I graduated

I got my MBA from an accredited online university (Touro University International in Cypress CA), which was bought by another company and subsequently had its name changed after I graduated (now Trident University). All student info, including transcript info, was bought and is maintained by Trident University, but the school was originally a branch campus of Touro College in NY (around the time I went there). The issue now is that Touro University International in Cypress (who I got my diploma through) isn't an option on Airlineapps, but Trident and Touro University in Vallejo and Touro College in NY are.

Anyone else run into this? Which school did you select on the app, and would United or Delta care since the transcript wont match either? I'm going to check with Airlineapps, but wanted to see if anyone had the same issue first.

Had a similar problem with my BA. I listed the option available on airlineapps since it was the only available and most current. You have to take your transcripts to your interview. I explained to them that there was a name change since my graduation, but otherwise is the same school and only option on the application. No problem at all. They looked at my GPA and asked how I liked the program. That was it.
You will be just fine.

I chose Trident University. Your transcript will have a letter that explains that their name used to be Touro University. It was a non-issue.

Thanks for the words! I had put Trident initially, glad to hear it sounds like the right choice.
