Non-matriculated (Visiting) Students

Non-matriculated students are individuals who are interested in taking Thomas Edison State University courses or TECEP® examinations without seeking a degree.

Interested students are required to submit an application to the University as a non-matriculated student, and must first create a new student profile and select the Start a New Non-Matriculating/Visiting Student Application

Please note that all applicants must possess a high school degree or its GED equivalent, and meet the University’s criteria for admission. Thomas Edison State University will not admit non-matriculated students who are under the age of 18.

Non-matriculated students, both graduate and undergraduate, pay the current per-credit rates as outlined on our Visiting Student Tuition page.
