Transfer Equivalency Self Service FAQs

Transfer Equivalency Self-Service (TESS) is a tool that prospective undergraduate students can use to see how their transferred courses might contribute to a degree at the University of Scranton. It is not an official transfer articulation or degree audit.

A degree audit shows how completed coursework might contribute toward a degree. TESS displays unofficial mapping of your entered transfer coursework to University of Scranton degree programs.

The red boxes on the audit represent coursework or requirements remaining to be completed based on the information you entered about your desired degree and your transfer work

Only courses that have been reviewed at the University of Scranton will show up in the course list for an institution. 

Currently TESS is intended only for undergraduate programs. Graduate transfer courses are evaluated on an individual applicant basis.

If you are uncertain as to your intended degree or program at the University of Scranton, please contact a transfer admissions counselor for guidance.

'Taken with too many units' on the results page usually means the credit you entered does not match the credit typically equated here at the University of Scranton for the course.  Please go back and review that you entered the correct credit value.

'No mapping found' on the results page means we do not yet have an equivalency for that course entry in our database. That does not mean you will not receive credit for the course if you transfer. Please contact a transfer admissions counselor for more information.
