Course Registration - Payment Requirements and Financial Aid Information

Course registration via Online Student Service requires payment by credit card, corporate voucher, military tuition assistance or have approved Thomas Edison State University Financial Aid for this term at the time of registration. If you complete your registration and leave a balance unpaid, you will be automatically deregistered the next business morning. All successful registrations will be confirmed by the Office of the Registrar within 2 business days by email.

Federal financial aid is awarded only for enrollment in Thomas Edison State University distance learning courses (Guided Study or Online courses). Financial aid will not be awarded for TECEP exams, Prior Learning Assessment (PLA) or e-Pack courses. In order for your course fees to be paid by financial aid, you must register for courses in the terms that you requested in your award letter. If you register in courses outside of the terms you requested and don’t pay on your own at the time of registration, you will be deregistered.

If you are paying by check, please print the Undergraduate Course Registration Form or Graduate Registration Form and mail it with your payment. You can also request to be manually registered while we await the check payment to arrive. Please select the check option when completing the online form. If the check is not received within 1 week, you will be deregistered for nonpayment.

Navy, Marines, Coast Guard, Air Force Students or MyCAA Spouses Using Up-Front Tuition Assistance

Students using Navy, Marines, Coast Guard, Air Force and MyCAA tuition assistance may register for courses and we will reserve a seat in the class(es) while you wait for your TA document. You will receive a confirmation email from the Office of the Registrar within two (2) business days, to confirm that you have successfully chosen your course(s). However, your registration process is not complete until you send your authorized TA or payment. Please submit your TA using the TA Upload Form, as soon as you receive it. If we do not receive the authorized TA or another method of payment prior to the term start date, your name will be removed from the course roster on the first day of class. You will receive emails as the term start-date approaches reminding you that your registration is not complete if payment (or TA) has not been received. Please note any student share must be paid prior to the term start date.

Navy/Marines/Coast Guard/Air Force/MyCAA student: Please ensure that your TA is 100% accurate. The military requires that the term, course number, description and tuition dollar amount are exact. The military may refuse to pay for your course(s) if you submit an inaccurate TA form and the University would be unable to report your final grade to the military at the completion of the course. If your TA form is inaccurate, you should contact your ESO and request an adjusted TA. All TA’s should be submitted using the TA Upload Form.
