Transferology and TES Frequently Asked Questions

What is the difference between TES and Transferology?

TES is a course description database. The database contains complete course details including course codes, course titles, descriptions and number of credits. TES also gives users the ability to analyze transfer courses and transcripts, manage the maintenance of course equivalencies, and facilitate communication among other users, staff and faculty.

Transferology is a nationwide network designed to help students answer the question, “Will my courses transfer?” Students enter coursework, exams and/or military learning experiences to learn how many schools in the Transferology network have matching courses that may be awarded when the student transfers. Schools are ranked by the percentage of transfer coursework they accept for each student.

How do you search for a course in TES?

Enter the visiting institution within the ‘Institution Search’ field and click search.  Select the visiting institution. Select ‘Search/Search Equivalency.’  An ‘Equivalency Search’ pop-up will appear.  Select ‘Active’ for effective date.  Within the ‘Course Code’ field, enter the BenU course (e.g. ECON 2101) or a Distribution Requirement if searching for a Gen Ed (e.g. QRT, QCA, QLR, etc.). Below the course code field, select ‘Equivalent Course.’ Select ‘Search.’

What is Transferology?

Transferology is used to show how courses at community colleges and four-year institutions across the country transfer to Benedictine University. It allows students to search for course equivalences to determine how their credit from community colleges and four-year institutions across the nation will transfer at Benedictine University.

Transferology also allows current students to determine which courses will transfer back to BenU if they need to take a course elsewhere to stay on track for graduation.

How do I create an account and login for Transferology?

The first time you access Transferology, you will be prompted to create an account. You will need to enter your first and last name and email address to create an account.

What is the Request Information option?

You may request additional information regarding admissions, financial aid, visiting campus or advising. You can also send a custom message directly to our Admissions team.

Will my courses transfer?

Once you have created your account, you will add the courses you completed or plan to take at the school(s) from which you are transferring. Once you have added your courses, click the “View Matches” button. The “View Matches” option will list all the institutions with their percentage match determined by the filters set in place.

Click the large “% Match” button to the left of BenU to see how your classes may transfer. The “Matches” tab will show the courses that already have defined transfer equivalencies. The “Misses” tab will show courses that have already been evaluated, but have been determined not to transfer (you may see additional courses that you could take to meet a different equivalency). The “Maybe” tab will show courses that have not been evaluated and require more information.

What is the function of the Find a Replacement Course tab?

Current students who need to take a course at another institution to transfer back to BenU can use the “Find a Replacement Course” option to search for a specific course, course type, institution or department. BenU is set as the “School You Currently Attend” default. To search for a course, click the “Search for Matches” button to see all the courses from all the schools that BenU has determined to be equivalent to the courses you need.
