Learn how your military training can be accepted as credit at Thomas Edison State College, view potential degree programs and learn about possible career options – all before you apply.

The current Coast Guard policy regarding its Tuition Assistance program is to provide 75% coverage. This effectively reduces TA coverage to $187.50 per credit (from $250.00) and $2250.00 annually (from $3000.00).

Consequently, the College advises Coast Guard Students to apply for Financial Aid and/or Tuition Assistance Top-Up* to give students an option to help cover the out of pocket expenses.

*Note to Tuition Assistance Top-Up students utilizing Post 9/11 Chapter 33 Benefits Only; please write "9/11 Top-Up" on your TA form so you registration will be processed.
