I am taking all of my classes online, and I highly recommend TESU for someone who wants to go the online route. They are quite flexible with degree planning, something was was every important to my life. Because their courses are spread out over three months, you can also balance how you many/few credits you want to take at a time. Also, the feedback from the professors are quite helpful!

I really enjoyed the multitude of classes offered and the cheap tuition. The Moodle platform was very convenient and easy to use. I found the myEdison portal difficult to understand, though. I also appreciated the thoughtful comments of my teachers on my online class assignments.
It was an excellent way to get a degree online.
Thomas Edison was very flexible and helped me work through my international locations. They were helpful regarding timings and due dates for assignments. Everything was always communicated clearly via e-mail or the portal.
All requests and questions I had were promptly answered via Email. I also had a very good experience with their contact phone line. The policies were clear and fair.
I feel that Thomas Edison gave me an excellent value for money for my degree and was helpful to me as an international student.
For busy adult students, TESU is the perfect fit. Adapting to an entirely-online education does take some getting used to, but the mentors and staff are all incredibly helpful--they WANT you to succeed. And the results speak for themselves! I transferred into TESU with a dismal GPA (<2.0, yikes) and graduated with a 3.5 and straight A's. No, TESU was not my first choice for my undergrad education, but I am so thrilled with my experience at this underrated little uni.
