Welcome to TESS!

The UTM Transfer Equivalency Self-Service (TESS) site has been designed to assist you in discovering how the courses you have taken at other institutions will transfer and can be used to earn a degree at the University of Tennessee at Martin.


Click here to begin and follow five easy steps to get started!

Step 1: Create an account. For best results, create a login account so that you can save your transfer and degree evaluations and return to it at later date for updating courses completed and intended degrees.

Step 2: Answer a few questions about your intended start date and desired UTM degree. A list of UTM programs is available here: Degree Programs.

Step 3: Select your institution(s) and courses you took including which term. Please include courses from all institutions you have previously attended or currently attending.

Step 4: Review your unofficial degree evaluation for your intended degree at UTM.

Step 5: Let us know how we can assist you in transferring to UTM!

Please note that the transfer and degree evaluation reports that you have created are NOT official. Rather, they 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.
