TCE and Exception Process

Transfer Credit Evaluation (TCE) and Exceptions / Waivers / Petitions Process

The Transfer Articulation & Degree Audit (TADA) in the Office of the Registrar is available to help you in the following areas regarding a student degree audit report:

  1. Exceptions/Petitions/Waivers
    Exceptions are done for students who are able to alter the program requirements from approved curriculum requirements in that catalog year. All exceptions are done by the Transfer Articulation & Degree Audit (TADA) and processed within 24 to 48 hours after the approved exception is received.
    1. Exceptions within department requirements do not need committee approval and can be sent to a TADA liaison through MyUNLV Comments via Advising Summary Page.
    2. Exceptions within Gen Ed must go through the Transfer Articulation and Degree Audit (TADA) Office and/or petition to the General Education Committee and be approved before those exceptions will take place.

Transfer Evaluation System (TES)

TESĀ® the Transfer Evaluation System from College Source is the premier interactive database which empowers users to quickly locate course descriptions; route and track the evaluation process; store, manage, group, and publicize the resulting equivalencies.

This system is being used to replace the paper process of TCE's (Transfer Course Equivalencies) for the majority of those that are routed through campus mail. It is UNLV's goal to go 90% paperless with the transfer course equivalency process (review of and decisions related to the acceptance of coursework from other institutions) by August 01, 2013.

If you feel that you should have training for this system, or have any questions or issues, please contact the Office of the Registrar to find out what type of training is needed.

You must go through training in order to get a login and password. If you already have a login and password click here to go to the TES system.

Important Notice: Check the Transfer Articulation Table to see if a course is already equated to a course here at UNLV before starting the TCE process. Often, a course from another school will be articulated to a one-to-one match here at UNLV AFTER the student has been admitted. To save the time of going through the process, check the Transfer Equivalency Tables to see if this course has been articulated. If it has, then you need only to email [email protected] and let us know that the course is already aritculated to a course here at UNLV and that you need the student's file to be updated. Provide the course title if available, the student ID number, and what school the course is transferring from. In doing this, you do not have to go through the TCE process and the student's record will be updated faster. If the course is not equated on the tables, then you will have to follow the TCE process outlined above.
