What can I study? top of page

  • Note: Students may apply these PLR credits at Thomas Edison State University to any part of a degree program, including the area of study, as long as they are appropriate and do not exceed the limitation of transferable credits from any one source.
  • Contact to learn more about the degree pathways related to your PLR assessment
  • If you have additional college credits you would like to transfer or prefer different degree programs at the University, a University academic evaluation will determine whether and how PLR credits may fulfill the requirements for your degree of choice.


How do I get started? top of page

  • Submit documentation of successful completion

    Students should contact NJCTL to request a verification letter be sent to the Office of the Registrar, Thomas Edison State University, 111 W. State St., Trenton, NJ 08608.


What is the process for using TESU's credit transcription services? 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.
