TESU establishes transfer agreement with Central Texas College

Central Texas College

Thomas Edison State University (TESU) and Central Texas College (CTC) have established a transfer agreement that provides Central Texas students with a seamless transfer experience to TESU. The institutions established the partnership earlier this year. Students who earn associate degrees in Aviation Science, Business Administration, Criminal Justice, Homeland Security or Interdisciplinary Studies at CTC can now complete a bachelor’s degree in specific areas of study at TESU.

"Through our partnership with Central Texas College, Thomas Edison State University continues its commitment to providing accessible and seamless pathways to higher education,” said Dr. Merodie A. Hancock, president, TESU. “Central Texas College shares TESU’s long-standing commitment to our service members around the world along with a reputation of providing exceptional educational opportunities to community college students in Texas and beyond.”

Through the partnership, CTC students have the opportunity to transition to TESU, allowing students to obtain a bachelor’s degree. These academic pathways outline a clear path from CTC to Thomas Edison State University, which creates a simplified transfer experience and allows students the opportunity to begin quickly and easily pursuing a bachelor’s degree. Thomas Edison awards more than 65,000 college credits to students for prior learning annually, with each TESU student earning an average of 38 credits toward their degree by leveraging prior learning options.

Chartered in 1972, Thomas Edison State University is one of New Jersey’s senior public institutions of higher learning and one of the oldest schools in the country designed specifically for adults. The University offers associate, bachelor’s, master’s and doctoral degree programs in more than 100 areas of study as well as undergraduate, graduate and professional certificates. TESU is a military-friendly institution and a leader in recognizing military service and converting training and experience into college credit. The University was named the “Institution of the Year” last year by The Council of Colleges and Military Educators (CCME). The CCME Institution Award is presented “to a higher education institution in recognition of its significant contributions to the cause of military education,” according to CCME. “The recipient will be a college or university that supplies quality education programs to the armed services.”
