Getting Started with GoArmyEd

If You Have a GoArmyEd Account:

  • If you have a GoArmyEd Account or home institution and wish to change your home institution to Thomas Edison State University, simply select the “change degree/school” Smart Link in GoArmyEd.
    • Complete the VIA prompts in GoArmyEd
  • If you are eligible for Tuition Assistance (TA), but have not yet completed the process to request TA, select the “Request TA Access” Smart Link.
  • Your case will be escalated to an ESO, and the home institution and degree program will be changed. The GoArmyEd system will then trigger a common application to be sent to Thomas Edison State University, who will process your information. Please note, processing time for this procedure is generally 5 to 10 business days.

If You Do Not Have a GoArmyEd Account:

  • If you are eligible for Tuition Assistance (TA), but have not yet completed the process to request TA, select the “Request TA Access” Smart Link in GoArmyEd.
    • Complete the VIA prompts in GoArmyEd
  • Your case will be escalated to an ESO, and the home institution and degree program will be changed.
  • Once this is complete, you will need to revisit GoArmyEd and complete the Common Application to finalize your degree plan. The GoArmyEd system will then trigger a common application to be sent to Thomas Edison State University, who will process your information. Please note, processing time for this procedure is generally 5 to 10 business days.

The common application will then be sent to Thomas Edison State University, where it will be processed. Turnaround time for this depends on your location and availability of the ESO. You will receive a welcome package approximately 15 business days after your common application has been processed.


Once you have a GoArmyEd account and you have sent a common application to Thomas Edison State University:

  1. Request that official transcripts (both military and civilian) be sent directly to:
    Office of the Registrar
    Thomas Edison State University
    167 W. Hanover Street
    Trenton, NJ, 08618
    (888) 442-8372
  2. If you are unsure how to request your Joint Service Transcript (JST), visit: https://jst.doded.mil
  3. As the transcripts are received, your file will be sent for evaluation. Standard evaluation period is currently four to six weeks. Please note that during this time you are allowed to take up to six (6) credits before receiving your evaluation. It is your responsibility to be sure the six credits do not duplicate work already done.
  4. Once your evaluation has been completed, schedule an appointment with an academic program advisor to plan your degree program using the AppointmentDesk application, available via your myEdison account.

The Office of Military and Veteran Education will do everything possible to ensure your application is processed quickly. If you have questions, contact the Office of Military and Veterans Education or call (866) 446-1804 (within the U.S.) or 1-609-281-5215.
