Degree: Computer Science

I chose TESU because it was the only option my current job allows. It has its upsides. They're very generous with credit transfers. They offer a highly flexible schedule, both through the nature of online programs and by allowing students to enroll in classes at the start of any month. Their tuition costs are relatively affordable. TESU is a great school if your only interest is to put a degree on your resume from somewhere accredited with as little time and effort as possible. What TESU won't offer,... Read More

I already had a degree in Engineering, but from many years ago, and liked the self-directed / guided study approach which Thomas Edison takes and their willingness to apply so many of my credits towards a second degree in Computer Science. If you are self-disciplined and willing to manage your time, you can take 2-3 courses in the Comp Sci area of study and do quite well. I am very happy so far and would recommend (I do still have 2 classes to go). The only thing I would prefer is more options for... Read More

I didn't learn very much from Thomas Edison since most of the courses for my major were transferred from a community college. This really disappointed me since I felt that community college classes fall short of providing the level of study to award a Bachelor degree. The rest of the classes I took were gen ed and math which didn't help me much. I felt that most mentors didn't really participate in the course besides assigning homework and grading tests. You're pretty much left on your own to deal... Read More

To preface, I already had a Bachelors from a more traditional school, I took some courses to prepare for a MS program. I paid the $5500 to take 36 credits over a year, I ended up taking 8 classes. It was pretty up and down. I had some good professors who would respond within a day or so, I had some who never responded to a single email. I had a couple classes where it was obvious that the professor never checked the homework and just gave you an A if you submitted anything. No video lessons or office... Read More

Read all the negative reviews with a grain of salt. There are A LOT of lazy people that are attracted to online schools. TESC is no different. My experience has been good, it's like any other online school. You have to put in the time to learn the subject - it doesn't just come naturally. If it did, then everyone would have a degree. TESC really will help you, they're there to help you succeed. You getting a degree helps them look better. Sometimes there are bad instructors, it happens at every school.... Read More
