Transcript Evaluation Service

Transcript Evaluation Service (TES) provides students at Cañada College, College of San Mateo and Skyline College an official evaluation of coursework completed at colleges and universities outside our district. TES will determine how this coursework will be applied to your program of study, associate general education, CSU general education and IGETC requirements.

All students who have indicated that they attended an outside institution on CCCApply and completed matriculation will receive a Transcript Evaluation Success Plan in Student Success Link. To view your success plan and check for updates, please log into mySMCCCD Student Portal and select “Student Success Link”. Our department will send students updates to your account regarding your evaluation status and any information we may need.
