Enroll

Once you have been accepted to Thomas Edison State University, you may enroll as a student and begin earning your degree immediately. To enroll, you will need to select a tuition plan.  Most undergraduate students (excluding nursing, active duty military and corporate partners) select either the Comprehensive Tuition Plan or the Per Credit Tuition Plan.

>> Comprehensive Tuition Plan:  students pay a flat tuition that covers up to 36 credits in a 12-month period.  A payment plan is available for the Comprehensive Tuition Plan.

>> Per Credit Tuition Plan:  students pay as they go using a per-credit tuition model. 

You can select your tuition plan and pay tuition using either of these plans via Online Student Services. Once you complete this step, you will be an enrolled student for one full year and eligible to register for courses at enrolled student rates via Online Student Services.

You may pay your tuition online with a credit card or electronic check, or by contacting the Learner Support Center at (888) 442-8372. Tuition may also be paid via the U.S. mail.

Developing Your Degree Program

As an enrolled student, you will benefit from a wide range of student services that will help you achieve your educational goals. Once you have selected a tuition plan and registered and paid for classes, you may schedule an appointment with an academic advisor to thoroughly review your evaluation and develop a degree program. During this important process, your advisor will work with you to develop a pathway that maps out how you will earn your degree.

Registering for Courses

As an enrolled student, you will have enhanced access to myEdison©, the University’s online course management system, which enables you access your courses. Students can register for courses online through Online Student Services. You may also enroll via telephone by calling (609) 633-9242 Monday-Friday from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., via fax at (609) 292-1657 or via the U.S. mail. Enrolled students may schedule an appointment with an advisor by calling (888) 442-8372 or via email.

Enrollment Grace Period

All students are provided a thirty day grace period at the end of their current year of service. For example if their enrollment date is August 2, 2015 they have a thirty day grace period that ends on September 1, 2015.

The primary purpose of the grace period is to provide students completing their degrees with time to submit final grades or transcripts for the graduation audit. Students that will not complete their final courses during the grace period will be required to extend their enrollment.

If a student has not renewed or extended their Comprehensive Tuition Plan, or enrolled in a course or exam that will extend their active enrollment under one of the University's per credit tuition plans, he or she will become inactive at the end of the grace period. After a student is inactive they will be required to reapply to the University.

Change of Enrollment Plans

Students will be able to request a change to their enrollment plan, Comprehensive Tuition Plan, or Per Credit Tuition Plan, within ninety days from the start of their current year of service. The written requests must be sent to bursar@tesu.edu. Once received the Bursar's Office will change the enrollment plan and recalculate any tuition and fees if necessary.
