Pursue your Passion. Advance your Career.

It takes courage to go back to college. But the decision isn’t really about going back to school. It’s about moving forward and moving ahead. It’s about your desire to be better, go further, and to be the best you.

At Thomas Edison State University, your past experience in and out of the classroom means more - more transfer credit and more savings. Your prior college coursework, military training, and hands-on experience on the job will be evaluated to help you obtain a shorter path to graduation. With one of the most generous transfer credit policies in higher education, completing your degree is easier and quicker than ever. And we’re here to help you every step of the way!

Although balancing all aspects of life can often overwhelming, at TESU we challenge that logic. We believe in you and your success and that’s why we are here to help! We offer more than 100+ affordable online programs designed with your timeline in mind. You got this! But don’t take it from us, ask our alumni.
