Search by Geographic Location


Use the GEOGRAPHIC Optional Search feature to locate all the schools within a select mile radius of a selected city. This can be really helpful, particularly to help a student find a replacement course (a course that they can take at another institution and transfer it back to their home institution to satisfy a particular requirement). For example, let’s say a student tells you that they live near Minneapolis, MN and would like to take a summer course to satisfy an English requirement at your institution. Use the geographic location feature to locate schools within a certain mile radius of Minneapolis to evaluate their courses as possible equivalents.

  • Select the Geographic radio button.
  • Enter the range, the city, and the state.


  • Click the search button.


  • Click on the arrow button for any of the schools that display to see their course catalog(s)/data set(s).
  • Create an equivalency or create an Evaluation Task for any of the courses that the student is interested in taking.
