I'm not familiar with the transcript evaluation yet, and I'm sure there are many different things in the background which are difficult to get at first glance, however, upon receiving everything, how can it take nearly a month to evaluate one course? Would be happy to have a better understanding the process.

They don't drop everything to evaluate your specific transcript in a day, whether it's 1 course or 20. They have transcripts from everyone else, and they are processed on a first come first serve basis. It seems to go into a q system, so not looked at until that specific time.

Had forgotten the TES-100 Cornerstone was a fixed priced rather than per credit. Registered. 

By the money I'd wouldn't save, you mean if I were to have to take the SOS-110 Cornerstone instead (from missing out on registering TES-100)? Or is there is another place I might be passing up on a decent amount of money?

So you are on the old catalogue? I recall you posting just last month about receiving your credit eval.

Just because you see TES-100 being offered, doesn't mean it will waive the SOS-110 requirement if you are in the 2019 catalogue.

Yeah, as zzzz24 mentioned, they have a queue and it takes 3-4 weeks or so on average before a transcript is even looked at, plus however long it takes to review it and update your academic evaluation. The minimum time is based on how many are in the queue ahead of you and how many evaluations they do each day, but 3-4 weeks appears to be the norm.

If you have many classes to review, it will take longer to complete the review once they begin. I've had transcripts take up to 5 weeks between arrival at TESU and an updated academic evaluation.

Thanks, that gives me a better idea of what to work with.

Yes, I'm on the 2018 catalogue.
