Lawrence Tech has partnered with the Transfer Evaluation System (TES) to provide a database for prospective students to view previously evaluated courses. TES is intended to be a guide for prospective transfer students.  Courses not found in TES may still be eligible for transfer credit.  The TES database is an ongoing project, college and university courses are added on a continuing basis.  TES is subject to frequent revisions.  

The information provided in TES is meant to serve as a guide.  Even if the course appears in the list of evaluated courses is it not a guarantee that the course will transfer for your program.  An official evaluation of transcripts will be completed at the time of admission. Program flowcharts can be used as a reference only. 
Students may transfer a maximum of 60 credits from a community college and 90 credits from a 4-year college or university.  Students may transfer a maximum of 90 credits total from a combination of community colleges and 4-year institutions.  Please note, no more than 60 credits can come from the community college in this case.  More credits may be transferred if the student is completing a program under a signed articulation agreement.

Students must receive a grade of "C" or better for a course to be considered for transfer credit.
Current Students - TES should not be used as a guide for current LTU students to plan transfer credit as a guest student. Current students seeking guest credit must complete a guest credit request form and submit it to the Credit Review Committee. Otherwise, credit may be denied regardless if the course is listed as transferable.

Not all programs require General Elective credit. General Elective credit hours vary depending upon the major. Please refer to the flowchart for your major to see if General Electives are a program requirement. Majors with General Elective credit: Business Administration, Chemical Biology, Chemistry, Computer Science (except Game Software Development), Environmental Chemistry, Information Technology, Mathematical Sciences, Math & Computer Science, Media Communication, Molecular & Cell Biology, Physics, Psychology.

Apprenticeship, trade, remedial, physical education, and basic study courses are not transferable.

Can’t find your course?
If a course does not appear in TES, it just means we have not evaluated it yet. 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.
