School Lookup

Transferology Lab's School Lookup provides a way for you to search for a college's identification codes via keyword(s). If your institution's equivalencies come from DARwin or uAchieve, you may wish to use this tool as a means to verify the identification code of a school when creating new institutional reference and transfer articulation tables. Using one of the recognized codes helps better ensure that transfer equivalencies will display in Transferology. If institutional information is unavailable in the School Lookup, select Request New School to ask that it be added.

To navigate to the School Lookup:

1. Go to the Rule Management Menu.

2. Select School Lookup.
