Residency Requirement Fee

Degree: Liberal Arts

I enrolled at this college to complete the last 15 credits of my bachelors. The school itself was fine, I was only there because I needed my bachelors degree to practice my trade (completed at a different school) in New Jersey. I was not informed until after I completed 15 credits, and only received an E-mail after it was too late to sign up for more classes, that if you do not sign up for 16 credits minimum there is a residency requirement fee in which you have to pay $3,000 if you use less than...

I highly recommend the TESU experience. I struggled with education throughout my life because I am 65% deaf (one dead ear, the other with damage due to childhood disease). Though I attended classes in everything from community college, to traditional four year, with a couple courses at an Ivy, it was TESU, its advisors, instructors and support staff that made my education worthwhile. I uncovered talents and capabilities for which I had not been aware. I graduated with honors! (And some of the course... Read More

Do not go here, the academic advisors lie about their appeal/grievance process, and when you do appeal any decision it goes back to the first person who turned it down to start with. Corrupt, deceptive, and against the ethical statement of their accrediting agency! They try to force you to take courses there to raise their income when you are almost finished with your degree, even if you need a course from elsewhere. Corrupt! Dishonest!

Very disappointed in a couple of the classes I took here. Online students are generally non-traditional students, who have careers and families outside of the fact that they are going to school. No adjustments whatsoever for workload. I ended up with a C in one elective, even though I had 100's on all of my papers. I bombed the midterm and final because there was just too much information to try to retain, even though I studied my ass off. To me, I learned more writing the papers, and the tests did...

TESU has a very fine online program. The curriculum for each course is set by the administration, so every section of a course runs exactly the same. The course mentors varied in quality and the amount of their participation, though. Some mentors were slow in posting grades and did not have a lot of interaction with the class, but others posted grades quickly and were as active in their participation as an in-classroom instructor would be. As should be, the upper level courses were more challenging... Read More
