Mentors at Thomas Edison State University

The University has approximately 675 mentors who facilitate students’ academic progress.

Mentors are selected because of their academic and experiential preparation as well as their commitment to serving adult learners. They provide guidance for students as they progress through their course work and represent qualified faculty from other accredited colleges and universities. Mentors make assessments of students' completed assignments, course examinations and assign course grades. They are available to students via email, online courses and phone. We require that all graduate-level course mentors hold a terminal degree. Many also have extensive professional experience.
