Academic Advising

Applicants to the University who have questions regarding enrollment are encouraged to contact the Office of Admissions at (888) 442-8372 for assistance.

Enrolled Students
Once applicants have paid the annual tuition (Comprehensive or Enrolled Options), they are considered enrolled students and have full access to the University’s academic advisement, evaluation and program planning services. Students may call the Advising Expressline at (888) 442-8372 to address brief questions. Appointments for both undergraduate and graduate advising can be made through the AppointmentDesk program available online through myEdison®.   

Advising Expressline
Students who have already received their official program evaluation and have brief questions or need clarification of general degree issues should utilize the Advising Expressline. A student advising appointment (discussed below) should be made for more in-depth discussion regarding special degree concerns and/or specialization and area of study course requirements. The Advising Expressline is open Monday through Thursday, from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., and 10 a.m. - 4 p.m. on Fridays, Eastern Standard Time, excluding holidays. The toll free number for the Advising Expressline is (888) 442-8372. It is highly recommended that students call at least two weeks prior to the date of registration to determine if a course(s) is appropriate for their degree program.

Student Appointments
Enrolled students are encouraged to make an appointment with an advisor for program planning, extensive questions regarding degree programs and methods of earning credits during the first six months of their enrollment period. Appointments with an advisor are available to enrolled students only and may be conducted in-person or by telephone. Appointments for both undergraduate and graduate advising can be made through the AppointmentDesk program available online through myEdison®

Program Planning
Students enrolled with Thomas Edison State University are strongly encouraged to work with an advisor and submit a degree program plan that outlines how they will complete all or part of the remaining requirements for degree completion. Students may view the Advisement and Degree Planning Handbook, which provides them with the steps required in developing a program plan and includes detailed information on methods of earning credit, academic policies and the structure and credit requirements of degree programs.
