Create Equivalencies to User Added Transfer Courses

This article contains instructions for creating equivalencies to User Added Transfer Courses through the Course Finder.

Some users may prefer creating equivalencies through the Equivalency Manager. See Create New Equivalencies Using the Equivalency Manager for further information about this process.

Creating an equivalency to a User Added Transfer Course is just the same as creating an equivalency to any other transfer course in TES®.

To begin:

  1. Go to the Search menu.
  2. Select Course Finder.

Locate the User Added Transfer Institution

  1. Within the INSTITUTION SEARCH, enter the name of the institution.
    • The U.S. Schools radio button is selected by default.
      • To search for institutions outside of the United States, toggle either the Non U.S. Schools or All radio button.
    • Users should be aware that abbreviations and alias searches cannot be used to locate User Added Institutions within the INSTITUTION SEARCH fields in TES. CollegeSource recommends entering the full name of the User Added Institution (or at least the most unique part).
  2. Select the Search button.
  3. Select the arrow to the left of the institution's name ("Select an institution").

"- CSU Added" is appended to the name of all User Added Transfer Institutions created by CollegeSource University (SH). This phrase clearly identifies that the institution was created by a user in the CollegeSource University TES® account and is not associated with official TES institution data.
