Course Bundles: Sort and Filter Replacement Bundle Matches

Course Bundles are grouped collections of courses, standardized exams, military credits, and program requirements within Transferology® Lab. These can be used by college staff to provide students with more efficient advisements and to research transfer scenarios. Pre-named bundles can be automatically created from advising & recruiting leads.

Staff can create Replacement Bundles and Collaborative Replacement Bundles to find courses students can transfer back to the home institution to fulfill course or program requirements. Sometimes, the list of schools from which courses can be taken is extensive. This article will detail how to use Sort and Filter options to narrow Match results to specific needs/preferences.

This article presumes that the reader has already navigated to the Schools Found page and is ready to view Replacement Bundle Match results. See Course Bundles: View Replacement Bundle Matches for more information about how to locate this page.

In the below example, 11 schools have a Match to the course or Requirement Category in the Replacement Bundle. The Lab user may wish to narrow down these results using the Sort and Filter options highlighted to find specific schools or those that meet certain criteria.

Callouts illustrate the location of the filter bar, the looking for a particular school button, and the Sort and Filter options.
