Set Up the Transferology School Profile
This article provides an overview of the School Profile in Transferology®. The School Profile is a collection of information and resources that the institution presents within Transferology to help prospective students become acquainted with the college or university and what it has to offer. Students can see aspects of this information when accessing Transferology via a school's customized landing page and see two versions of the profile when seeing how courses transfer to the institution.
CollegeSource will fill out the School Profile for each institution upon onboarding. School Admins can review this document to understand the contents of the School Profile before reviewing and adjusting information or to assist in updating the profile at a later point.
