Transfer Equivalency Self-Service (TESS)

Welcome! We are excited that you are considering the University of Southern Indiana to continue your college career.

Transfer Equivalency Self-Service (TESS) is a tool designed to help prospective transfer students determine how their transfer credits may be accepted at USI and how those credits may apply toward a chosen program.

Here are the 4 easy steps to follow:

  1. Select the term in which you plan to begin attending USI and your intended degree program.
  2. Select the college/university you have attended and select the class(es) you have completed or will complete. For each course you will be required to enter the term the course was taken, number of credit hours, final grade received/expected, and whether the credits are semester or quarter hours. Repeat this step for all classes as you have completed at all colleges.
  3. Once you've entered all classes, click the "I'm all done!" button to view the results. This includes a preliminary transfer evaluation (course equivalencies will tell you how your transfer courses may be accepted at USI) and a preliminary degree audit (how your transfer courses may apply toward your chosen degree/major).
  4. Next steps:
    • Download a PDF of the results to print or save
    • Apply for admission to the University
    • Request more information about the University or a program
    • Make changes to the information you entered in steps 1 and 2
    • Save your information for future use by creating an account

For more detailed information about using TESS, review the TESS Help page.
