Thomas Edison State University gave me the flexibility to customize my degree to exactly what I needed for grad school (I'm now enrolled in a MS program at UC Santa Cruz). What's more, their policy on CLEP, DSST, and transfer credits allowed me to finish my BA in only two years. The courses I did take through TESU were only, fast-paced, and challenging, with an excellent comraderie among the other online students and a richness of depth in the topic taught by informative and friendly course mentors.
Review Thomas Edison State University
-The customer service and admissions office have been very helpful. They've responded quickly and clearly to all my questions and aided my transition into Thomas Edison. I am very pleased with the student support.
-The course materials and instructions have been good.
-The main area of improvement that I would recommend would be the student website. Compared to previous course/student websites I have used this one is a little confusing and not designed as well. It's nothing that can't be learned with a little time, just not five star quality.
-Overall, I am extremely pleased with Thomas Edison and would definitely recommend it to anyone looking into this type of college.
I loved that I was able to complete all my coursework and requirements through distance correspondence. Additionally, as Thomas Edison doesn't have a limit on how many transfer credits they accept, I was able to complete all of my Gen Eds through CLEP and DSST testing. The lack of limit on transfer credits also allowed me to take a few courses through other colleges that were more specific to my interests and goals.
