Evaluating your courses to determine what transfer credit you have and what courses you need to take can be challenging. Below are the steps to view the courses you have taken, how they transferred to ETSU and how they apply to the requirements needed to complete your degree. There is also information on how to request credit for a course that transferred in as something other than what you thought it would be.

|Look at your transfer coursework|
Log into Transfer Works to see how academic credits you have earned at other institutions can be used to earn a degree at East Tennessee State University.
|Choose your Program of Study|
ETSU offers more than one hundred programs of study with offerings at the undergraduate, graduate, and professional levels including distinctive interdisciplinary programs.
|Compare your transfer coursework to major, minor, degree, proficiency intensives and university and general education requirements|
Compare your transfer course to the requirements for the major of your choice (general education, degree, major and minor requirements). This will help you to determine what courses you have credit for and what courses are needed.
|Note: Transferring 50 or more credits to ETSU reduces the proficiency intensive requirements|
|Students who have not chosen a major|
ETSU's general education requirements apply to all undergraduate students pursuing baccalaureate degrees. If you have not chosen a major, you can work on fulfilling the general education core requirements. However, keep in mind that many majors and degree programs require students to take specific courses to fulfill general education requirements. So it is best to choose a major as soon as possible to lessen the likelihood of having to take additional general education core classes to meet major and or degree requirements.
Note: You can also see the general education requirements on pages that list requirements in respective majors. Some majors require specific general e ducation courses.
