Equivalency Data

How Do Schools Get Equivalency Information into Transferology®?

There are four primary ways to get equivalency data into Transferology:

  1. Existing TES Equivalencies
  2. Flat File Import
  3. Transferology Connector (uAchieve)
  4. Transfer Rule Extractor (T-Rex)

See Getting Equivalencies into Transferology for more information.

Who Do We Send Flat File To?

Please send flat files to TFOSupport@collegesource.com.

  • Flat files should be pipe (|) delimited text files
  • Importing Transfer Equivalencies provides an overview of the import process and file specifications needed.

When Do We Have to Get CollegeSource® a Flat File?

Information is updated in Transferology® on an ongoing basis. Institutions may submit data files at any time. 

How Often is Equivalency Data Updated? 

How often equivalency data is uploaded depends on the source of the data:

Source Frequency of Update
Existing TES Equivalencies Daily Tuesday-Saturday morning
Flat File Import Flat files may be submitted twice per year with the institution's subscription. Institutions may opt to purchase additional submissions.
Transferology Connector

Institutions running the Transferology 5.0 Connector can receive daily refreshes after:

  1. Running the required scripts; and
  2. Contacting CollegeSource to finalize setup.

Once setup is complete, data will be pulled daily, and equivalencies will be available the next day.

If an institution is running the Transferology 5.0 Connector but has not taken the above steps, data will be pulled daily, but equivalencies will be available two days later.

(Example: Data pulled on Monday --> equivalencies available Wednesday)


Institutions running Transferology Connector 4.4.x or 4.3.x:

Daily; equivalencies available two days later 

Transfer Rule Extractor (T-Rex) Once per week (Saturday) 


The Transferology 5.0 Connector gives institutions the option for nightly equivalency refresh and HTML and PDF degree audits.

Where Can I Find the Does Not Transfer List for Target Courses?

The Does Not Transfer List provides a list of values that can be used in transfer equivalency data to indicate that a course does not transfer to an institution. Courses carrying these values will automatically receive a 1% Match score when searching for Matches and show in the Misses tab in Transferology® and Transferology® Lab. This list is available within the Transferology Lab Support Center.

Audits

Is Secure Socket Layer (SSL) Required within the URL to My School's Degree Audit Server?

No.

Does Transferology® Support HTTP 1.0 Basic Authorization, with Username and Encoded Password, When Sending the EDAG DegreeAuditRequest?

Yes. Transferology is able to send the standard Basic Authorization request header. Please send your EDAG's Basic Authentication credentials to TFOSupport@collegesource.com.

Is a Self-Signed SSL Certificate Allowed for the URL to My School's Degree Audit Server?

No. We do not import certificates into the Transferology environment.

My School Has a Transferology Connector or External Degree Audit Server. What IP Do I Need to Allow Through My School's Firewall for Programs to Work?

Transferology must send an XML program request to your Connector or external Degree Audit server. Additionally, your Connector or external Degree Audit server must send the resulting XML program response document back to Transferology.

For this exchange of XML documents to work properly, your school's firewall must allow the following IP addresses to open an https connection to your school's Transferology Connector or external Degree Audit server. Additionally, your school's Transferology Connector or external Degree Audit server must be able to open an https connection to the Transferology web services. Their IP addresses and domain names are listed below:

  • 23.22.104.35--test.transfer.org (TEST Transferology web services)
  • 18.207.24.42--www.transfer.org (PROD Transferology web services)

*For increased security, schools may choose to restrict access to their servers by environment, i.e., the TEST Transferology web services are only allowed to connect to your school's test serve and vice versa.

Will Interactive Audit Work in Transferology?

No.
