Transcripts are provided to students who are enrolled students, graduates or were a previously enrolled student. Applicants are not entitled to a Thomas Edison State University transcript, except for courses they have taken with the University as a nonmatriculated student. The Thomas Edison State University transcript format is the same whether the transcript is created for a degree seeking or non-degree seeking (Individual Learning Account) student. We will record credit in accordance with the policy below. A GPA is printed on the transcript only if graded courses were taken at Thomas Edison State University. Dates of credits/courses are printed only for Thomas Edison State University institutional credits.

Transfer Credit - Credits earned at any regionally accredited college or university are accepted in direct transfer and are identified on the transcript by the sending institution's course number, course title, and credit earned.

Transfer courses in which students received grades of D-, F, U, W, I or any other symbol indicating no credit are not recorded. At the graduate level, we only accept transferred courses with a B or better.
