Enrollment FAQs

You can check your enrolled student status in myEdison. Your Student Profile page shows "Student Status" on the top right.


Enrollment is maintained in the University by taking at least one course a year. This allows you to be eligible to continue under the same degree requirements shown on your academic evaluation. Students who have not taken a course in 36 months will need to reapply and return under new degree requirements.

You must maintain continuous enrollment in the University to be eligible to apply for and be reviewed for graduation. This student status requirement applies even if you select a degree program for which we do not offer all the courses you must take to meet the requirements or if you need additional time beyond your annual enrollment to complete your final course(s) with Thomas Edison State University.

As an enrolled student, we encourage you to schedule an appointment with a University 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.

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 in real time for courses online through Online Student Services. You may also register via telephone by calling 609-777-5680 Monday-Friday from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., or via the U.S. mail.


If your enrolled undergraduate student status lapses at any point, you may become enrolled again by simply registering for a TESU course, as long as it hasn’t been more than 36 months since your enrollment was last active. If you have been inactive longer than 36 months, you are no longer pursuing a degree plan at Thomas Edison State University.

Should you decide to return in the future, you will be required to reapply and complete the degree requirements and follow University policies in effect at the time of your return. Please be aware that there may be significant differences between your original transfer credit evaluation information degree plan and the new one and you may be required to complete more courses than were required when your enrolled student status ended.

You may continue to take courses at Thomas Edison State University as a nonmatriculated or non-degree seeking student. However, you will no longer have access to a degree plan online and you will need to reapply in the future in order to determine your new degree requirements.
