How do I get started? top of page

  • Submit documentation of successful completion
    Students must submit a notarized copy of their NJ, PA, or NY real estate license along with this cover sheet. In NJ only, a Real Estate "Referral Agent" license is comparable to a Real Estate Salesperson License, and a Real Estate "Broker/Salesperson" or "Broker of Record" license is comparable to a Real Estate Broker License. Please note that the title of "Broker/Salesperson" is not a combination of New Jersey's Real Estate Salesperson and Broker licenses. Therefore, students must provide distinct documentation of each license in order to be awarded credit for each license.
    In NJ, to have a copy of a Real Estate Broker License or Real Estate Sales License mailed to Thomas Edison State University, students must fill out the Certification/License History Request Form from the State of New Jersey, Department of Banking and Insurance, Licensing Services Bureau - Real Estate and pay the $25 required fee. Fill in the University's mailing address (Thomas Edison State University, Office of the Registrar, 111 West State Street, Trenton, NJ 08608) on the form.


 

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. Thomas Edison State University offers a non-degree service called Individual Learning Account that may be helpful.
