Transfer Equivalency Self-Service (TESS)

Welcome! We are excited that you are considering the University of Southern Indiana (USI) 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 to a chosen program.

Here are the 5 easy steps to follow:

  1. Select the following (all are required fields):
    1. an intended degree and major
    2. what semester/term you plan to begin attending USI
    3. what level (undergraduate or graduate) you plan to pursue
  2. Select the college/university you have attended (you will be required to enter the course ID, final grade received, number of credit hours, the semester/term the courses were taken, and whether they are semester or quarter hours).
  3. View a preliminary transfer evaluation report (this will tell you how your transfer courses may be accepted at USI).
  4. View a preliminary degree audit (this will tell you how your transfer courses may apply to your chosen degree/major).
  5. What to do next --
    1. apply for admission to the University
    2. request more information
    3. make changes to the information you entered in steps 1 and 2
    4. see a report of the results and be able to print the report

A few things to know when using TESS:
