Q: I found matches for my courses, but I don't really understand what they mean?
A: If you have questions about your matches, contact the school by clicking the "Request Information" button located on the match detail and school profile page for the school you're interested in.
Q: When viewing my matches, I noticed some courses have a match that ends in T** or ***. What does that mean?
A: While every school is different, generally this means that a school doesn't have an exact match for your course, but will give you some transfer credit. For more information, contact the school by clicking its "Request Information" button.
Q: Can I apply to my desired school thru Transferology?
A: No, you must contact the school directly to apply. In the School Profile area, if the school has a link for Admissions Application or Admissions Information, click on the link to be directed to the school’s website.
Q: Does Transferology send my transcripts to the school I want to transfer to?
A: No. Transferology simply shows you the equivalencies that the school you want to transfer to has defined for the courses that you have entered. Entering the courses that you have taken does not initiate a transcript request from your former/current school(s). When you are ready to actually transfer, you will need to follow the transfer guidelines set forth by the institution you are transferring to. Typically, this will mean requesting that your prior institution send an official transcript to the institution you want to transfer to. Check out the transfer process information on the website of the institution you want to transfer to.
Q: The school I want to transfer to isn't on the list. Will they still accept my courses?
A: Maybe, depending upon why the school is not appearing on your list of matches. The school may not be there because it hasn't shared transfer rules with us that match your courses. Or, the school may not be showing because it doesn't participate in Transferology at all. Not every school in the United States participates, so we only display matches for those schools that do. If there is a school you'd like to see, send us a message via the Contact Us link below and we will contact them to see if they would like to participate in Transferology. In the meantime, you should look into contacting the school directly to get your specific transfer course questions answered.
Q: Can I locate courses offered online?
A: No, Transferology is not connected to a course schedule or registration system for the member schools, therefore, we have no knowledge as to what courses might be offered online.
Q: Why is there a blue icon next to the equivalent course?
A: This gives the schools the opportunity to display notes to explain the transfer equivalent course or explanations how the credit might be used for requirements at the school. Click on the icon to display the note(s).
Q: How can I run a program or degree audit to see all of the courses from my school that transfer?
A: If the school you want to transfer to has programs enabled, an "Apply Courses to a Program" button displays under the school logo. Simply click that button and follow the prompts. Additionally, if the school has the feature enabled, you will also be able to add all the courses that apply to a program from a specific source school so that you can see what classes to take that will transfer into a program you are interested in pursuing in the future. If you don't see the "Apply Courses to a Program" button, the school has not enabled that feature.
Q: Why can’t I find the school I attended on the drop-down list?
A: A school name not appearing in the list could be due to either a spelling issue, or it might not be there at all. First, try typing the most unique part of the school name all by itself. For example, type "Cloud" for St. Cloud State University. Note that this is especially tricky with schools with Saint/St/St. in the name; you must type the name the official way the school does, or you will not find it. Again, correct spelling of the most unique part of the name can help ensure that you find it in the list, if it is in the list. If your school still isn't on the list, send us a message via the Contact Us link below and we will do everything we can to add it.
Q: I have added more Courses/Standardized Exams/Military Credits to my Transferology profile. How can I update the programs that I previously ran?
A: While there is no way to update programs, you can rerun them as many times as necessary. There is no limit to the number of programs you can run or to the number of times you can run any one program.
Q: If I completed courses at an international school, will I be able to find matches to my courses from the US member schools?
A: Some of the member schools do not have equivalencies displaying for international schools. This does not mean that they won’t accept the courses or credit in transfer. Check with the school to find out more information.
Q: How can I delete my account?
A: Click on your name in the upper right hand corner and select Edit Profile. In the bottom right hand corner, select “remove your account”.
Q: Is Transferology a school that I might apply to?
A: No, Transferology is a software application for member schools to display their equivalents to courses in transfer from other schools.
