You be the judge
January 21, 2012
I've been a student at TESC for about a year and a half. Here is what I think. I am 45 and have worked for about 20 years in my degree area. Pluses: 1. It's regionally accredited. If you're not sure what this means, I encourage you to spend a new minutes to google it. It's important. 2. Great for professionals who have a lot of experience in their subject area. There are several ways ... [Read more]

JUST READ THE REVIEW
November 22, 2011
I went to Rhode Island College for three years before joining the military. I served six years in the military. While in the military I finished my degree with TESC. With my military experience and TESC degree I was able to get a job in the civilian sector starting at $90,000. I do not work at a nuclear plant or nuclear facility. I never work on the weekend and never have to do shiftwork. This ... [Read more]

I have to laugh reading some of these reviews
September 19, 2012
I LOVE people who write these comments and complain about the amount of work they had to do. This is COLLEGE people!!!!!! Ok now...I took some time off after high school and when I went back to community college at age 24, online learning was just starting to take off. I preferred it better to going and fighting for a parking spot, so I took as many online courses as I could. When I graduated ... [Read more]

Accredited, but not very challenging.
September 22, 2012
I completed the SOC program through TESC for a BSAST in Clinical Laboratory Sciences. I had previous college credit, so I only had to satisfy the 18 credit hour residency (which, as of Oct 1, 2012 is 24hrs for a Bachelor's degree). My TA covered everything, and I bought the books used online--not from TESC's bookstore. The quality of the classes was okay, but I found myself inadequately challenged. The assignments were extremely easy, and ... [Read more]

Not worth your time or money
August 20, 2011
The financial aid department at this school is awful. They consistently gave me wrong information. Now I am left with one class to graduate and I am not eligible for any type of financial aid, not even a loan. I put a complaint in with the Better Business Bureau. A representative front the school called me and asked me to remove my complaint. I refused. I want to let others know how this school operates. ... [Read more]

Not Issues Here!!!
March 14, 2012
I have just finished my BSBA at TESC and I have not complaints. Can somethings be improved at the school? YES, but this is everywhere. You will never find a school that is 100% perfect. The staff at TESC have all been professional and extremely helpful even at times when I knew I was being a pain (LOL). Professors were all great and gave me a nudge when I needed it to get through. Look ... [Read more]

Don't enroll for education, you wont receive any
April 27, 2013
I currently enrolled in Thomas Edison, but will definitely be leaving after this semester. There is absolutely no instruction or education at this place. Teachers, or "mentors", as they are called here are non existent. The curriculum consists of you teaching yourself an entire text, then being tested on the material you taught yourself. No interaction or instruction from mentors, no feedback, grades are not even explained, or if they are the explanation is completely ... [Read more]
