Student Reviews and Ratings for Thomas Edison State University
I had already been to 3 different institutions before I found TESU, Their ABET accredited programs are amazing!Source of the review: Google Places, Google Maps™
So far, I have had a great experience and wonderful teachers. I have always been able to get hold of somebody and get my questions answered. There is a physical campus as well as online classes. You only have to complete 3 credits a year to remain in the school. Very flexible.Source of the review: Google Places, Google Maps™
I did not start working on a college degree until I was 23 years old. By the time I found Thomas Edison State University I was well into my 30's and had taken courses at 4 different colleges/universities. The staff there did a great job at coordinating all my credits so that, with several portfolios to collect 9 final credits, I was able to complete my degree several years earlier than if I have continued with the university I was attending at the time. That's because they would not take some of my credits from previous course work at the other institutions. I was then able to go on and get my Master's Degree from Temple University. Thomas Edison State University was a perfect fit for me.Source of the review: Google Places, Google Maps™
i spent a great deal of time working on my educational pursuits over the years, the college reviewed my transcripts from several Universities and was able to map out a plan for me to complete both my AAS and my BA in about 15 months. it was the best investment in myself that i have made other than starting a business. I was able to use the skills learned in managing staff and encouraging others to pursue goals that were hard but achievable. I wish I had found them earlier in my educational career, i could have save my self lots of money and disappointment. i can not stress enough how open the administration and counselors were about costs and helping me stay on task. I am planning to complete my Masters due to the plan that was prepared for me by this team of excellent advisors.Source of the review: Google Places, Google Maps™
Great military friendly school finished my BA and now considering looking at a Masters in Homeland Security with TESU. This university made the financial transition with me from active duty to civilian life less painful. Many thanks.Source of the review: Google Places, Google Maps™
