Replacement

In addition to transfer functionality, the Course Bundles also contains Replacement functionality:

Lab users navigating to the Advising & Recruiting, Course Bundles menu will see the Course Bundles page and its tabbed layout. Tabs may include Transfer, Replacement, and Empty.

  • Transfer: analogous to the Will My Courses Transfer (green path) functionality in the Transferology student application
  • Replacement: analogous to the Find a Replacement Course (blue path) functionality in the Transferology student application
  • Empty: shows created bundles that have no courses

NOTE: The Empty tab only displays when empty bundles are saved with no courses, otherwise the Empty tab will not be visible.

Replacement Tab

Search for Matches

Click the Search for Matches button () to search for matches to courses on the Replacement Bundle's Course List. The Schools Found page is displayed with school matches displayed (high → low), 100 per page.

In this example, over 2,000 schools have matches to the Course List. Filter or Sort the search results, or scroll to the institution of interest.
