Stage 2: Enrollment: Application & Transcripts

Regardless of which VA chapter you may qualify for, the first step after determining your eligibility is to enroll with Thomas Edison State University. We highly recommend utilizing our Military & Veteran Portal (MVP) before you apply to the University, as this resource will not only provide you with a personalized overview of available degree programs, but will also provide career-specific resources throughout your journey at Thomas Edison State University.

Once you have determined your degree program, you should complete the online application and submit your transcripts.

Enrollment: 5-7 Business Days
Once the application has been processed, you will receive a letter welcoming you to the University, which will provide critical information, such as your college ID and information on your next steps.

Welcome Letter

Evaluation: 4-6 Weeks
Once transcripts have been received, the Office of the Registrar will begin to work on applying your previous military and civilian experience to your chosen degree program. Upon completion you will receive a notification, indicating how you can access your newly completed academic evaluation.


Apply: It is during this step that you should follow the directions to apply your VA benefits with Thomas Edison State University.
