College Credit

Upon completing a claims law course, a student may be eligible to receive college credit.

The National College Credit Recommendation Service (National CCRS) has evaluated and made credit recommendation for 49 of AEI's claims law courses. For more information, click here.

Thomas Edison State University (TESU), accredited by the Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools, specializes in providing flexible, high-quality educational opportunities for adults and will accept credit for those AEI courses completed according to National CCRS requirements (an important requirement is that THE COURSE EXAM MUST BE PROCTORED AND THE PROCTOR MUST BE APPROVED IN ADVANCE BY AEI). A student can obtain an undergraduate degree directly from TESU, regardless of where the student lives or works. Enrolling in its BSBA (Bachelor of Science in Business Administration) degree program will enable the student to gain the greatest benefit from AEI courses, especially if the student chooses a specialization in Insurance, because AEI's courses are matched with core and specialization requirements that make up the bulk of that degree.

TESU offers a graduate degree, Master of Science in Management, which requires 36 credits, 12 of which can come from AEI work. For graduate degree credit, a research project is required for each AEI course. This project will involve a topic relevant to the course in question as determined by AEI's Director of Education. It must be 5-7 typewritten pages. There is a $50 fee per course (graduate level only). 

TESU's unique educational mission provides flexible, high quality, collegiate learning opportunities for self-directed adults. TESU students fulfill degree requirements through a variety of means: they take credit-bearing examinations, they transfer credits they have earned from other accredited institutions, they take online and other distance-delivered courses, and they have their college-level knowledge assessed through the Prior Learning Assessment (PLA) process. Through these various means, students may earn college credit and complete degrees wherever they live or work. There is no residency requirement.
