How do I get started? top of page

  • Submit documentation of successful completion

    Download and submit this verification letter to your air carrier's flight operations area for completion. The Air Carrier will copy and paste the contents below the line onto its letterhead. Completed forms on letterhead must be sent directly from the Air Carrier to: Office of Registrar, Thomas Edison State University, 111 W. State St., Trenton, NJ 08608.


 

Can I transfer APR credit to another institution? top of page

If you are seeking to transfer the APR credits to another college, the decision whether or not to accept these credits in transfer rests with that college. It is the student's responsibility to ensure that the receiving institution's academic policy will allow transfer of each credit.
