Replacement Courses

Sometimes students need to take coursework at an institution other than their home school. They may be going home for the summer or may have life circumstances that require a change in plans. These students need to find courses that would transfer to their home school and fulfill degree requirements there. The Replacement Courses feature in Transferology Lab enables you to assist students in finding these classes. 

Overview

The following resources are available to help you learn how to use the Replacement Courses feature of the Lab.

  1. Replacement Courses: Search by Department
    • This article provides an overview of how to search for replacement courses using department name.
  2. Replacement Courses: Search by Alt Course or Iflg
    • This article illustrates how uAchieve schools can help students find courses that can transfer back to fulfill a requirement (such as a lib ed). In these instances, you would not be searching for equivalents to your courses. You would instead search for courses whose transfer articulation rules contain a specific alt course or iflg.
      • An alt course is a secondary identity that a course carries to help it meet a requirement on an audit.  
      • An iflg (or institutional flag) is a piece of extra information carried on a course that indicates a special characteristic about it, becoming important in the transfer articulation and/or degree audit process.
