Courses & Equivalencies
The TES database is an internal tool used by LACC counselors, faculty, and the Articulation Officer to compare external coursework taken at other colleges with courses offered at Los Angeles City College. TES provides faculty guidance primarily for GE "pass along" purposes, including applicability to meeting CSU GE Breadth and IGETC requirements. Acceptance of coursework required to meet any general education and graduation competency requirements (e.g., Math, English, Ethnic Studies) is solely at the discretion of the Counseling faculty or Articulation Officer where the Articulation Officer has final determination. The course equivalencies identified in TES are intended only for internal use by LACC counseling faculty and are not official articulation agreements between Los Angeles City College and other institutions. Official articulation agreements between Los Angeles City College, California State University campuses, and University of California campuses are posted online in ASSIST (assist.org). Please keep in mind that our repository of courses can be modified or updated from time to time. It does not replace proper academic advising.
Appropriate credit will be awarded when your transcripts are officially verified and when you submit a graduation petition and/or transfer certification request. Your official transcripts and/or external exams from other institutions must be sent directly to LACC’s Admissions and Records. For Pass Along Credits, we do not accept credit posted to a third-party institution’s transcript. Credit is only considered from the original institution’s official academic record.
