Sort and Filter Transfer Match Results

Within Transferology® Lab, college staff can view how courses, standardized exams, and military credits may transfer to or earn credit at participating colleges and universities. When students request information from a school, individuals with the appropriate user roles can view the coursework entered by the students and view Match results through Recruit Students and Advise Students. Similarly, all users of Transferology Lab (regardless of role) can create Transfer and Collaborative Transfer Bundles and view Match results.

Sometimes, the list of transfer schools within these results 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 Match results. See the below articles for more information about how to locate this page:

In the below example, 186 schools are reported to have evaluated at least one of the courses, standardized exams, or military credits entered into Transferology®. 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.
