  • Search for transfer courses using the Transfer Evaluation System (TES)
    • TES is sorted by school name, so look for courses within the college or university at which a student completed the credits. Find the school’s name in the alphabetical index, then click the name to see a list of courses that transfer to Bethel. You can search by course code to see how specific classes transfer to Bethel.
    • Special note for GES 160 Inquiry Seminar transfer course equivalencies: different courses will fulfill this requirement, dependent on entry year.
    • If a course or school isn’t listed, that doesn’t necessarily mean it won’t transfer to Bethel. It may mean that we simply haven’t evaluated the course yet. Students can fill out a transfer course petition to have classes evaluated.
