The Transfer Evaluation & Student Services (TESS) unit of the Office of the Registrar provides transfer students with the information and resources necessary for a successful transition to Kennesaw State University. A critical component of the transfer process is determining course equivalencies. The University System of Georgia (USG) offers transfer course guarantees for students who meet General Education requirements from USG institutions. There are also transfer guarantees from the USG via an articulation agreement for students who transfer courses from the Technical College System of Georgia (TCSG). KSU may extend transfer course guarantees via articulation agreements with other regionally accredited post-secondary institutions or international post-secondary institutions with equivalent of U.S. regional accreditation.
TESS coordinates the course equivalency process for courses in the General Education Curriculum, lower-division requirements, upper division requirements, equivalencies for credit-by-exam mechanisms, and military education. Each academic department is responsible for determining course equivalency for transfer courses that may be applicable to the student’s program, including upper-division requirements.
The equivalency review process generally does not begin until a student is fully accepted to Kennesaw State University and all relevant documents are received. All transferable coursework shall be assessed and dully noted on the student's KSU transcript.
