How do I get started? top of page

  • Submit documentation of successful completion

    Please request FINRA to send your snapshot to transcripts@tesu.edu when emailed. If it is being sent by mail, please request it be sent directly to Thomas Edison State University, Office of the Registrar, 111 West State Street, Trenton, NJ 08608.


 

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

If you are seeking to transfer the PLR 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.

If you would like to request a copy of the PLR report for a particular organization or credential, please email your request to plr@tesu.edu and include the following:

  • Your name
  • Your phone number
  • Your complete mailing address
  • Name of Reviewed Organization or Credential
