TES Transfer Evaluation System
Search our database of pre-evaluated college courses.
We have an extensive database with thousands of undergraduate courses from around the country pre-evaluated. Use it to see if your college courses (including courses taken through PSEO or CIS) have been evaluated. (See the TES Tips section below to initiate a review if your course has not yet been evaluated).
Here's what you'll find in TES:
- Course Equivalencies: Find out if a course is equivalent to a St. Kate’s course your program requires.
- Course Core Requirements: Find out if an individual course meets a core requirement, this will be listed in the Public Note attached to the course.
- St. Kate’s Core Requirements Transfer Guides: We have guides for the local colleges when you want a list of all courses at a particular school that will fulfill a particular St. Kate’s Core Requirement.
- General Elective: When a course does not have an equivalency or fulfill a core, it may still be applied toward the total credits required to graduate.
- Does Not Transfer: Courses that are considered developmental or Vocational/Technical in nature will not be transferred.
- Credits transferred will equal semester credit value on transfer transcript.
- Core Requirement Transfer Guides and are available for select local schools with the Guides link displayed to the right of the school name in the school search list. For schools without core guides, simply click the notes icon to see if individual courses meets core requirement. Associate program guides are also located there.
- Use the Course Codes Key for descriptions of generic course equivalencies (eg BIOLLABS).
- Once you’ve located your course equivalency, click the "My List Add" icon to start a list. Continue to add as many courses as you wish from as many schools as you wish, then email or print the list.
- Associate students should review the Associate Course Search Key prior to using TES.
