Professional License and courses evaulation for college credit @ Thomas Edison
#1
I am a licensed Nursing Home Administrator and Life/Health Insurance agent in the state of Indiana. I need an additional 27 credits for a Ba in Social Science based on my Thomas Edison eval. I would like to have my professional licenses evaluated for college credit, but I don't understand the process. My state is not listed with ACE, and I am unsure how I go about getting the state to particpate in the process.

Thank-you in advance for any and all help.

Hello Awgood,

I am a Registered Nurse in the state of NJ and PA. All you have to do is send TESC a copy of your license, they do the rest. I am not sure how many credits they will give you

Here is a TESC link that might help you:

Thomas Edison State College: Licenses & Certifications

Here's the specific Licenses/Certifications they give credit for.

Thomas Edison State College: Licenses & Certifications

Like I was saying... I was given credit (and actually had to have proof of my RN license to complete the BSN program). I am pretty sure there is a person on one of the TESC graduation videos that had a similar background/goal that you have. I don't know her name, but if she is an alumni, and listed on the TESC Alumni page, she might be a good reference for you. I am sorry, but I don't recall her name. She had more of an administrative background and simply needed the BA to advance, so I know it can be done. When are you looking to start TESC?

If you have already applied and are not in a rush to start in April, you might be wise to talk to an advisor in your department or make an advisement appointment to discuss your transcript/graduation requirements.

Best of Luck!
Tara
