Thomas Edison State University is a public university in Trenton, New Jersey. Since being established in 1972, TESU has become famous for its quality degree programs that cater to working adults.


Transferring Credits to Thomas Edison State University

TESU has one of the most generous transfer credit policies in the country, allowing students to transfer in nearly ALL of their credits (114 out of 120) towards a bachelor's degree. The only courses you are required to take at TESU are SOS-110 Critical Information Literacy and the Capstone Course. For the remaining 114 credits, ACE-reviewed credit sources such as AP/CLEP/DSST exams and self-paced online courses (such as those offered by InstantCert) are readily accepted at TESU and can be used to fulfill major requirements towards your degree.

What is the Process for Transferring our InstantCREDIT Courses to TESU?

As with all other ACE-reviewed courses, the first step is to create an account on the ACE Credit website. Then, as you complete each course with InstantCert, you request to have that course added to your ACE transcript. When you have completed all of the courses you plan to take, you then request that your ACE transcript be sent to Thomas Edison State University.
