Active Status for Veteran Students

Veteran students enrolled in Thomas Edison State University must demonstrate academic activity by attempting a minimum of 3 semester hour credits over the course of the 12-month period for which they are enrolled.

For example, a student whose course or other credit earning option began on Sept. 1, 2010, must register for another 3-credit course before Sept. 1, 2011, to be considered an enrolled Thomas Edison State University student for the following year. Students who do not attempt 3 credits in an academic year will be deemed "Inactive".

An "Inactive" veteran student may receive the following College services:

  • Register for classes online. Veteran students will pay the current tuition rate.
  • View grades and current financial aid award status.
  • Submit changes to mailing or email addresses.
  • Receive academic advising for only current or potential Thomas Edison State University degree programs.

Evaluation updates, review of new transcripts, degree program changes and access to myEdison® account will not be available. "Inactive" students (those who were previously enrolled in the University but who have not demonstrated academic progress as described above) can reactivate their enrollment by registering for a minimum of 3 semester hours in a course or other credit-earning option. Students will be governed by the academic policies in place at the time they began their program.

Veteran students who remain in "Inactive" status for three consecutive years, must reapply for admission to return to the University and will be governed by the academic policies and degree programs in place at the time of their readmission.
