Equivalency Explorer: Course Code Match

 

This report identifies potential equivalencies by providing a list of all of the courses that have the same Course Codes as courses in your catalog. It is intended to be used mainly by those states that have common course numbering, but can certainly be used by anyone in TES.

This report identifies potential equivalencies involving courses between your institution and another institution by comparing catalogs (data sets) and listing all of the courses with exact matching course codes.

You can look at these courses and either create equivalencies to individual courses, selected courses, or all of the courses.

  • Enter the equivalency details in the CREATE EQUIVALENCY popup and click the Submit button.
    • The information you include here will be added to every selected equivalency (in this example, 98 equivalencies).

When using the Code Match criteria you are more likely to match level, but you may see differences in units, and/or course descriptions. You will still need to use your discretion to determine if the proposed equivalency is valid. This list is a great starting point, but you should still review your potential equivalencies before defining them.
