Find out how RA credit transfers to TESU
#1
Just go to: https://www.tesu.edu/admissions/transfer-credit

If you have RA credit you can just type in the name of the school and it will tell you how the classes come in. Super easy for degree planning. Doesn't work with all classes at all schools, but there is a lot.

I've known about this for a while, but I just realized this could be helpful to some of you, so thought I'd share it.

I just went to look at ASU, because a lot of us are going to have those. It pulls up the institution okay but then you have to search by course number instead of by name, for those who might be confused. For instance, to find where the calculus courses come in, you'd search for "mat" and not "calculus".

Also not all courses from a particular school will be on there. Just because a course isnt there it will likely still transfer. Tesu is very generous when it comes to ra credits.
Sometimes for a more obscure class they might need a syllabus or course description but they take pretty much all RA college level credit.

I think this may be a subset of courses that people have transferred to TESU and that have been evaluated. The CIT and BUS courses for my community college are limited and look like I have taken them all.

I wish I had known about this tool a while ago! I didn't stumble upon it until earlier this month. It's not featured especially prominently on the website. The database seems to be quite comprehensive. In my exploration most courses from most schools seem to be on there. The search is pretty useless. Echoing other replies, the only way to actually find courses is by searching the three letter category. 

It seems that TESU quite often puts courses into a higher or lower level than the original institution. For example, the ASU econ classes are 200 level, but TESU maps them to 100 level.

That is probably because they really want people to take courses at TESU rather than transferring them in, but as a degree completion school, they really should be focused more on how to attract people with existing credits to transfer as well.

I'm pretty sure the database is either the same or derived from a subset of the database used by the evaluation team when mapping transfer courses. So this probably represents years of evaluation data.

That isn't uncommon since TESU has its own course codes and they are not uniform between colleges. There are really only two buckets at the undergrad level anyway: lower-division and upper-division. So as long as the courses are mapped to the same level at both colleges, then the specific course numbers don't matter. The problem occurs when courses are mapped from upper-division to lower (or rarely the other way). This becomes more challenging when dealing with college systems that use their own course conventions.

For example, most traditional colleges roughly map each year of college to a range of course numbers. So 100-199 for the first two years or lower-division undergrad, 200-499 for the last two years or upper-division undergrad (with 200-399 being normal upper-division and 400-499 being higher-level upper-division courses that are shared with grad students), and 500+ being graduate-level courses. However, Harvard and the UC system use 200-299 to designate graduate-level courses, 100-199 for upper-division undergrad, and anything under 100 for lower-division undergrad. Unless the destination school knows this, they may end up mapping things all wrong.

100-level vs. 200-level is rarely an issue; it's LL vs. UL that's more important.

But yes, if TESU offers a course as 100-level, and it's the exact same course coming in from elsewhere, they will give it a 100-level course equivalency.  But, they will also do the reverse - if your school offers something as 100-level and TESU offers the same course as 200-level, they will give it a 200-level course equivalency (my CC had Public Speaking and Comparative Politics as 100-level, TESU brings them in as 200-level).
