Financial Aid Shopping Sheet
Thomas Edison State College provides two versions of the Financial Aid Shopping Sheet (FASS). The FASS is designed to help you estimate the cost of attending Thomas Edison State College during the current Academic Year, and identify potential sources of financial aid so you can easily compare Thomas Edison State College with other institutions and make an informed decision about where to attend school. This tool is provided as part of Thomas Edison State College’s commitment to the Principles of Excellence under Presidential Executive Order 13607.

The first version of the Financial Aid Shopping Sheet is available to any prospective, applicant, or enrolled student. A second version is available to currently enrolled students via your Online Student Services account and will display detailed financial aid information if you have been awarded such.
