-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.
Review Thomas Edison State University
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.
This college was a perfect fit for me, and it really put my mind at ease regarding a lot of the more messy college-related stressors. Thanks to TESC (now TESU), I was able to finish my degree without going into massive debt. As a NJ resident, I was also able to take classes in person either at Trenton or at the community colleges they partner with. This really gave a lot of flexibility as I was able to choose between online and in-person classes. Overall, I really think that this school is worth considering for anyone that's looking to save a few bucks while furthering their education.
