Degree: Business Administration

TESU is a great school for working Adults, Military and anyone who has the ability to work without a lot of instruction. Basically This is a great online program. I do not recommend it to anyone that has a problem with online schools, this school is not for you, however if you are a person that can accomplish a task with out someone holding your hand all the way through the process, you will do well here. The Mentors will assist you in anyway they can, but again they are not going to spoon feed you... Read More

Degree: Mathematics

I received an Associates degree in Applied Health Sciences and later a Bachelors degree in Math and Science from Thomas Edison University. I took classes across the entire spectrum with Thomas Edison, classes in mathematics, statistics, Psychology, English Comp, Anatomy and Physiology, Chemistry, Ethics, Philosophy Microbiology etc... I can say that I have an advanced experience on what their class offerings are and the good and bad of them as an institution. I have worked full time the entire time... Read More

I have my AA from community college and wanted to finished by BA with the intention of moving on to grad school when my kids were older. I am now concerned that I won't get accepted with a "degree" from a bs school like this. The mentors, when they do bother interacting, have no input as to the syllabus, course content, or tests. Many of them aren't even the ones who grade the tests. They are not, by school policy, allowed to assign extra credit, which is unfortunate, because good luck passing any... Read More

TESU is fine, leaning towards bad. When you take a Midterm/Final, you can't even see your results when you submit your exam. You can see your grade in the grade book, but you can't see how you answered or the correct answers. Also, the proctoring service required to take an exam makes you download spyware onto your computer. Additionally, the professor for a given course has no influence in creating the syllabus or assignments. They can't view any of the exams, so they can't answer any questions... Read More

TESU is a good school where you can earn a degree quickly if you are self-disciplined and motivated. Designed for the working adults or those with competing priorities. You can test out of many of the courses you already know and the school has a generous credit transfer program. The course work is intense but very doable. I would recommend this school to anyone.

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...

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.

Now that I am done with my program, I can give an honest review. Just like others stated, if your just looking for an accredited degree to put on your resume then this is the way to go. I was going to get both my Associates and Bachelors, but I don’t think I can last another two years. Thankfully, TESU is accredited, and recognized by others colleges in NJ, so my Associates was accepted at Rutgers University and I will be finishing my bachelors with them 100% online as well. PRO:I like that a new... Read More

Degree: History

Not a great university. I had been to several colleges before Thomas Edison. The only things I liked about the school were the cost, the number of credits that could be transferred in and the fact that new classes begin every month. The quality of instruction was poor; my professors did not explain assignments even when asked and rarely provided feedback. The classes were brutal (expect lots of “busy” work). The college also does not have a career center to advise students when they graduate. I had... Read More
