Why Attend?

As a regionally accredited, New Jersey State institution of higher learning with a long standing tradition of providing educational opportunities to active duty military and Veterans. Unlike most institutions, at TESU there is no limit to the amount of credit a student can earn through prior learning assessment. Interested service members and veterans may easily view how their military training translates directly to college credit through our unique Military & Veteran Portal-- mvp.tesu.edu. In addition to seeing how military training and experience translates to college credit, service members and Veterans may explore career options and salaries, translate military jargon to civilian résumés with the résumé builder and even search for jobs. The University has one of the oldest established programs specifically designed to service the active duty military student. The University participates in the SOC Career Degree Programs, the GoArmyEd Program, the Navy College Program Distance Learning Partnership (NCPDLP), Air University’s Associate to Baccalaureate Cooperative (AU-ABC) and General Education Mobile (AU-GEM) and is a Level 1 provider for both the Coast Guard Institute and the Army National Guard Educational Support Center. Thomas Edison State University pioneered the use of technology to develop flexible, high-quality educational programs for self-directed adults. The New York Times called Thomas Edison State University “the college that paved the way for flexibility.”
