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.

Students may transfer a maximum of 60 credits from a community college,  90 credits from a four-year school or a maximum of 90 credits from a combination of community college and a four-year institution.  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.

Students must receive a grade of "C" or better for a course to be considered for transfer credit.

General elective credit hours vary depending upon your major. Majors with general elective credit include: 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 and Psychology. Details can be found by checking you flow chart for your major.

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

To ensure maximum transfer of credit,  we encourage you to contact the Office of Admissions at 248.204.3160 or admissions@ltu.edu to schedule an appointment with an Admissions Counselor.

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.
