What is TES?
The University of California's (UC’s) Transcript Evaluation Service (TES) helps California public high schools increase "a-g" completion and college eligibility among their students.
TES is a data tool that uses a proprietary algorithm and trained UC Evaluators to analyze students’ transcripts, thus providing a UC-certified snapshot of earned “a-g” course credits and those still needed.
Administrators can use TES to assess school-wide or district-wide progress toward meeting “a-g” requirements, identify areas of need and improve course offerings. TES also provides individual reports, which counselors, parents and students can use to identify and fill gaps in “a-g” eligibility and increase their competitiveness as UC and CSU applicants.
A newly updated and improved TES is now being made available to schools throughout California to dramatically increase access to the UC and CSU systems, especially for low-income, educationally disadvantaged students from diverse backgrounds.
