Transferology Source/Send Course Formatting
CollegeSource recommends that Transferology® subscribers utilize the source or send Course formatting used in Transferology when supplying transfer rules. Using the Transferology formatting ensures that students and fellow Transferology Lab users can find Matches to Courses, Standardized Exams, and Military Credits at the subscribing college.
See Military Encoding for an overview of the methods institutions can use to create military articulations for display in Transferology.
Formatting decisions should always be made in a way that ensures correct transcript processing at the college and not solely for Transferology. It is recognized that there may be instances where Transferology formatting cannot be used and that schools must use their judgment in determining what formatting conventions to apply. If the Transferology source or send Course code convention cannot be utilized, institutions that supply transfer rules through uAchieve® or PeopleSoft® can use Crosswalk Mappings to ensure Matches can be found.
