Thank you for considering Thomas Edison State University for your degree completion needs!
You are eligible to become an undergraduate student at Thomas Edison State University if you are:
Individuals not meeting this criteria, but who feel they warrant special consideration for other reasons, may petition the Director of Admissions and present appropriate documentation to support their being accepted to the University. Students admitted through special consideration are subject to the same academic policies and requirements as those admitted unconditionally.
You do not need to worry about application deadlines. The University offers 12 terms during the year.
Your student status is deteremined by your enrollment and the length of time you may take between courses. Please review guidance on active and inactive status and the services you are still provided, or action you may need to take if you go into inactive student status.
Thomas Edison State University follows the guidelines for readmissions and course withdrawals and release that align with provisions for Service members provided in Chapter 3 of Volume 2 of the Federal Student Aid Handbook set forth in the Federal Student Handbook for Service members.
If a military student must stop their educational endeavors for reasons of their service, the University will allow them up to five years to return to their academic program and catalog year that they were originally pursuing. The student is requested to contact their Military Counselor within the Office of Military and Veteran Education to inform them of their intent to return. The student simply needs to register for their next course in the next semester they are able to return, and their TESU student account will be returned to active and enrolled status once they surpass the 10th day of the course.
If the military student was unable to notify the Office of Military and Veteran Education prior to their departure for service, the Office will work with the appropriate University departments to correct grades, or other account needs, once the student provides the appropriate documentation demonstrating their service obligation.
