Academic Counseling

Courses & Equivalencies

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. The TES database is an internal tool that may be used by LACC counselors, faculty, and the Articulation Officer. TES provides faculty guidance on how to apply credits and course pass-alongs (where courses may be deemed similar or equivalent to LACC courses), primarily for GE and competency purposes. Substitution of coursework required to meet any general education and graduation competency requirements is solely at the discretion of the Counseling faculty or Articulation Officer.  Major course substitutions for ADTs are evaluated on a case-by-case basis through the student course substitution petitions which are reviewed by the Articulation Officer in consultation with discipline faculty as needed. Depending on the nature of ADT course substitutions being requested, TES may or may not be used by the Articulation Officer to evaluate ADT course substitution petitions. 

Appropriate credit will be awarded when your transcripts are officially verified and when you submit graduation petitions and/or transfer certification. Your official transcripts and/or external exams from other institutions must be sent directly to LACC’s Admissions and Records. Pass Along Credit – We do not award credit posted to a third-party institution’s transcript. Credit is only considered from the original institution’s official academic record.
