What can I study? top of page


How do I get started? top of page

  • Submit documentation of successful completion

    Students must submit a notarized copy of their state's RN license to the Office of the Registrar, Thomas Edison State University, 111 West State Street, Trenton, NJ 08608, along with a completed Student Submission of TESC-Assessed Credentialsform. The actual document may vary state to state but all licenses should contain the license type, name of the nurse, license number, license status, and expiration date. Students who received their associate degree in nursing from a regionally accredited institution may have transfer credits granted in lieu of the RN license credit.


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.
