Transfer Equivalency Self-Service (TESS) is a software that allows students to enter in their transfer courses to see how it will translate towards a degree they wish to attain at the University of Tennessee at Martin. Once you provide all of your information, you will be shown an audit for that degree.
Yes, you can access TESS on any computer, tablet, or phone with an internet connection.
The designation LD for lower-division credit and UD for upper-division credit will be used if no UTM equivalent course exists. LD and UD credits may be applied toward degree requirements that do not designate specific course number requirements or general elective (e.g., Art LD might fulfill a non-specific art course requirement or a general elective).
There are several reasons why transfer work may not meet a requirement.
Do not be concerned if a course that you have completed at another institution is not found, that is an indicator that we have not previously evaluated the course. Please contact the Records Office to request an evaluation.
TESS is used for any course work 1995 and later. Please use our Transfer Equivalency Table to find the UTM equivalent for your coursework.
A Flight Plan Audit displays courses you have completed, courses in which you are enrolled, and courses that should be taken to complete your program requirements. The Audit is arranged in blocks specifying each piece of your degree requirements, such a degree block, a major block, and a general education block.
Elective courses do not fit a specific area in the audit and are still used to fulfill the hours required for the degree.
Excess courses are electives over the minimum credits required for the degree. The grades in these courses are included in your overall GPA.
Unused courses are courses that are not used due to a limit being met or that serve as developmental courses. Students may see transfer courses in this area once the maximum transfer hour limit has been met.
Your Flight Plan Audit displays the courses needed to meet each block of your degree. You are welcome to contact the departments to discuss the appropriate courses based on your career goals and interests to make your transition to UTM as smooth as possible.
In some instances, it is allowable for courses to be shared in two different locations. This sharing is indicated by a red $ on the Audit. If you have questions about a course sharing, you can contact the Office of Academic Records.
Degree Works is not an official notification of completion of degree requirements. Students must take a minimum of 25% of coursework at UTM and meet GPA requirements, even if all check boxes are green.

No, the results that you receive are not official but should be used as a guide to help you understand how your classes taken at previous institutions may transfer to UTM and may apply to degree requirements. Official transfer and degree evaluations are not completed until you have submitted your official transcripts and you are fully admitted to UTM.
