TES is an invaluable tool for researching institution and course information for determining the transferability of courses from a sending institution to your institution. TES consists of a central database of data sets consisting of course details maintained by CollegeSource. These course details provide course-specific information including the course description, the number of units/credits, prerequisites, co-requisites, minimum grade requirements, lecture hours, lab hours, the department offering the course, and the version history of the course. Course Descriptions can be included in Evaluation Tasks and then routed to advisors and faculty evaluators for their review and approval. This process is tracked within the database, eliminating the need for a paper or an e-mail trail.

Building transfer equivalencies can be accomplished in a few, easy steps. Select an incoming course or courses, (send out the course description(s) for evaluation,) identify the equivalent course(s) at your institution, add pertinent equivalency details such as effective dates, public/private notes, and whether or not it is visible or hidden, and then save the equivalency right in TES. 

Equivalencies can be displayed on your website for the public to see using the Public View. Several different reports are available that provide additional assistance with the transfer-evaluation process. One allows you to compare two catalogs from the same (feeder) institution. There are three reports that let you review changes to your own catalogs that affect current equivalencies. TES greatly improves the efficiency throughout the entire equivalency evaluation process, potentially saving staff many hours per day.

The Support features include the TES User Manual, a list of Frequently Asked Questions, a collection of recorded demos and webinars, a list of TES enhancements and what features were included in each enhancement, a collection of additional resources, and the TES Web Service API Package details.
