Tuition rates and fees for students at Thomas Edison State University (TESU) will remain unchanged. The TESU Board of Trustees approved the decision at its June 11 regularly scheduled meeting.

The move keeps in place a 10-percent rate reduction that was enacted last year for full-time New Jersey state students. As the country begins to emerge from the pandemic, TESU stands ready to support the educational needs of adult learners. The university, a leader in online education, is preparing to enter its 50th year of providing flexible, high-quality collegiate learning and assessment opportunities.

“We are proud to hold off any rate increase,” said Dr. Merodie A. Hancock, president, Thomas Edison State University. “Throughout the nation, adult students have lost jobs, been furloughed and taken on other caretaker responsibilities. Meanwhile the educational demands for career success continue to grow. As we begin to get back to normal, TESU is here for our students and continues to make sure our degrees are affordable and relevant in today’s rapidly changing environment.” 

The Thomas Edison State University Board of Trustees approved a full-time rate of $3,579 for in-state undergraduate students. Tuition will remain unchanged for New Jersey students who take 8 or fewer credits at $399 per credit. Out-of-state full- and part-time student rates remain unchanged as do the rates for nursing, master’s and doctoral degree programs.
