Degree: Liberal Studies

TESU accepted my previous credits and allowed me to test out of a number of classes. The classes that I took online were interesting and I felt like I learned a lot. The professors were always willing to provide guidance and were readily available. I would highly recommend TESU.

I am glad to have found Thomas Edison State University. I work full-time and was able to earn my BS in Technical Studies. I have earned military education credits and additional credits from community college that were both accepted. I am glad to have found a school that accepts and appreciates the hard work of our military personnel. I have learned a lot during my time here at TESU and would recommend to anyone looking to further their education by earning their Bachelors Degree. Classes were easy... Read More

I am due to graduate this year 2019, however I do not think it will happen. I am a military member and at first I loved taking online courses at TESU but everything changed when I started taking my last course in order to graduate. The oh-my-God-why-do-I-have-to do-this Capstone course. I am in my 40's and trust me that if I really wanted to do a thesis I would take a course that required one. I know some people and professors say that it is the best way for them to see that you have learned but... Read More

To preface, let me get something off of my chest about some of the positive reviews of this school: why the condescension? (for example, "this is a school for grown-ups, go back to community college if you need the hand-holding.") How ironically immature of anyone who uses that language. That said, I will try to keep this review helpful. I found TESU was not for me for these reasons: -It's a catch-22. Yes, TESU is affordable and potentially fast for degree completion, but the coursework is self-guided,... Read More

If you have a lot of credits from other institutions and you don't want to take the 60 credits most universities require you to take then TESU may be a viable option. Go elsewhere if you are just starting off. TESU is not flexible by any stretch of the imagination. If you're late on a discussion post you get a zero, which has a profound impact on your final grade. You can go on their website and look at a class syllabus, which I would recommend, because TESU is big on high stakes testing. Meaning... Read More

Only go here if you need to transfer credits that are all over the place and don't fit into a traditional colleges degree program. I have yet to receive a study guide for midterms or finals. Also, my math teacher will not help any students. He just says ,look at the book. The courses are not set up to prepare you for the mid term and final exams. You can do really well throughout the course and them bomb the test because there are no study guides. They just leave it up to (in my case this last time)... Read More

The school at times can be a mess. If you are aggressive, problems are solvable, but you have to be persistent and do your best to get in touch with the right person. The courses themselves weren't so bad. Mentors ranged from helpful to marginally available. Courses were good. A lot of work, but most teachers had fairly liberal grading policies. --The school has potential, but needs administrative reform! -The reason I recommend it because its a State run school, so respectable, and affordable......
