The information provided in the Transfer Evaluation System (TES) database is meant to serve as a guide. For transfer students, an official evaluation of transcripts will be completed at the time of admission. Current students seeking guest credit should complete a credit review request and submit it to the Credit Review Committee. If this process is not followed, credit may be denied regardless if the course is listed as transferable.
The TES database is an ongoing project, subject to frequent revisions. Courses not found in TES may still be eligible for transfer credit.
Once accepted, transfer credit is evaluated and emailed to you in about 2 weeks. If you want to preview your transfer credit now, you can use the Transfer Evaluation System (TES) below to see what classes have previously been approved to transfer into LTU.
Students can transfer up to 60 credits from regionally accredited two-year institutions and 90 credits from accredited four-year institutions. In the case of the combination of a community college and a four-year institution, no more than 60 credits can come from the community college. Students coming from an institution that has an articulation agreement with Lawrence Tech may transfer more credits.
Lawrence Tech's Office of Admissions will review each course in your college and/or university transcripts for which you have earned a grade equivalent to a C or better, evaluating the coursework to see how it applies to your chosen major. Courses that are listed on the transcript as in progress will be reviewed once an updated transcript is available. You will get your transfer credit evaluation sent to you via email after you have been admitted. If you don't see a course on the evaluation that you believe should be on there, please let your Admissions Counselor know and provide a course syllabus so they can check with the appropriate academic department as necessary.
Use THIS LINK to find your major and see all required classes. Flowcharts are divided by each academic semester, although it is not always required to follow that exact plan. Once your transfer credit is evaluated, you will work with your academic advisor to register for your first semester courses.
General elective credit hours vary depending upon your major. Majors with general elective credit include: Business Administration, Biology, Chemistry, Computer Science (except Game Software Development), Information Technology, Mathematical Sciences, Media Communication, Physics, and Psychology. Details can be found by checking your flow chart for your major. Apprenticeship, trade, remedial, physical education and basic study courses are not transferable.
Students wishing to use their military experience for transfer credit must submit an official Joint Services Transcript (JST) or an official transcript from Community College of the Air Force (CCAF) for review. Only work in the Military Course Competitions category will be reviewed. Courses in the Military Experience category tend to be specialized and do not have college credit recommendations by the American Council on Education (ACE)
Lawrence Tech does not have a general education block as described in the Michigan Transfer Agreement (MTA), but supports the principles of the agreement and will evaluate the individual courses in the block for their role in meeting the requirement for a transfer student's chosen degree.

Can’t find your course?
If a course does not appear in TES, it just means we have not evaluated it yet and there is still a chance of eligibility for transfer credit. Once you fill out the admissions application and send in official copies of your transcripts, an evaluation will be done. Students will receive an evaluation of coursework within a few weeks of admission.
