Equivalency Explorer: Course Code Match

This report is used mainly by those states that have common course numbering. It lists potential equivalencies involving courses between your institution and another institution by comparing catalogs (datasets) and listing all of the courses with exact matching course codes (E.g. ACC 101 = ACC 101). You can look at these courses and either create equivalencies directly, or send them as evaluation tasks to your evaluators.

 Click the SELECT button.

 A list of all of the courses with matching Course Codes displays. The only thing that is being evaluated is the Course Codes; neither credits, titles, nor descriptions are considered. They could be drastically different, which is why this tool is intended to be used between schools or systems that use common course numbering. Schools that don’t are still able to use this tool, just please use it with caution.

Please Note: Because this feature is only looking at identical course codes, the corresponding courses could be completely different. Of all the Equivalency Finder reports, this one should be used with the most caution.
