The staff here was very rude and not helpful. I was cut off from everything immediately. As of that day it was in the system that I had a "past due" balance of 2700.00 and had no access to my online student account, no access to advisors and no access to any guidance. I understand that universities are out here just to take your money but if a student is actively seeking help, then help. Don't turn them away and then state that you have an "outstanding" bill that just generated the same day. Thomas Edison University is NOT geared toward the adult student and does NOT value their students.

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.

People don't know the school. I like most graduated with a liberal studies degree. Their career help consists of search engine similar to monster. I love the process of getting the education, however the guidance counsellors were horrific in advising. They constantly ask for money for grants, however I had to drop out one class short and re-register years later costing $3500 just so I could graduate. I took the last class I needed the an online testing center.
