About Thomas Edison State College
Established in 1972, Thomas Edison State College has a national reputation for academic excellence and educational integrity. Thomas Edison State College provides flexible, high-quality, collegiate learning opportunities for self-directed adults. One of New Jersey’s 12 senior public institutions of higher education, the College offers associate, bachelor's and master’s degree programs in more than 100 areas of study.
Thomas Edison State College is regionally accredited by the Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools and has earned additional specialized accreditations for its nursing and educational leadership programs. It is the only state college in New Jersey that offers degree programs at the associate, baccalaureate and master’s level, as well as undergraduate and graduate certificates. The College also offers online noncredit professional certificates.
For nearly 40 years, the College has pioneered the use of the latest technologies to develop flexible, high-quality educational programs for adults, and has served as a national leader in the assessment of adult learning.
The entire academic program at the College revolves around the unique needs of adults, removing the barriers that limit many adult students who cannot sacrifice their personal and professional responsibilities to pursue their education. Students earn credit through a variety of methods designed exclusively for adult learners, including online courses, guided independent study, examination programs, courses delivered via mobile devices such as flash drives, transferring credits earned from other regionally accredited institutions, earning credit for professional and/or military training, and by demonstrating college-level knowledge acquired outside a traditional classroom.
