Course Articulation Database – Transfer Evaluation System (TES)

Course Articulation Database

The Transfer Evaluation System (TES) is an interactive tool that will allow you to compare course descriptions and view classes that have been previously evaluated by our academic departments. Courses not found in TES may still be acceptable for transfer; however, those courses will be assessed upon submission of a Course Description Review Request. Additional schools and courses will be added to the UMBC Transfer Evaluation System as they become available. Students must be admitted to UMBC before submitting a request. See UMBC Transfer Credit Policies.

Students taking courses at Maryland Community Colleges can also review ARTSYS for two-year to four-year articulations.

How to use TES?

  • Begin by selecting the institution where you took courses.
  • Find your course in the left-hand column. The right-hand column will tell you the UMBC equivalent.
  • Select the “View” button next to the course for additional notes about the transfer course.

How to create an evaluation?

  • Begin by selecting the institution where you took courses.
  • Find your course in the left-hand column.
  • Select “My List Add”. A separate window will open to display the courses selected and the equivalency. You can add multiple institutions to your “My Equivalency List”.
  • Once completed, email or print the evaluation for your records.
