TESS (Transfer Equivalency Self-Service)
Welcome to Bridgewater State University’s system for degree evaluation TESS (transfer equivalency self-service). TESS 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 Bridgewater State University.
If you need TESS assistance, select the help icon ? in the top right corner. For best results, create an account so that you can save your transfer and degree evaluations and return to it at a later date for updating courses completed and intended degrees.
CAUTIONARY NOTE: Please be aware that the transfer and degree evaluation report that you created is not official and should only be used as a guide to help you understand how your classes taken at previous institutions may transfer and apply to degree requirements. The information is based on the most recent catalog, which may not be the catalog in effect at the time of your admission. Not all transfer institutions or courses may be listed. Bridgewater will accept all transfer courses with a grade of C- or above from accredited institutions. Remedial courses do not transfer. Courses listed under free electives, do not currently have direct equivalents at BSU, but may fulfill degree requirements upon further evaluation by the university. You are strongly encouraged to meet with an advisor after you are registered and final transcripts have been received to review your degree audit.
Official transfer and degree evaluations are completed upon submission of an application and official transcripts.
