Transferology Lab for advisors

Transferology Lab is the advisor-focused version of Transferology.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, then discover in a single click how many schools in the Transferology network have matching courses that may be awarded when the student transfers. Transferology replaced the UW System TIS Transfer Wizard on July 1, 2020.

The Transferology Lab is an extension of Transferology, designed to support the needs of faculty and staff at colleges and universities that are part of the network. In the Lab, users access advising resources like equivalency lookups and course bundles to see how the student's courses will transfer either in preparation for or during an advising session. Those with admin access can see monthly reports on student interest in UWL and edit the school profile.

Get an account

Faculty and staff advisors should request an advisor Lab account. Do not create a student Transferology account to use for advising purposes. The Lab has access to view the same course bundles and equivalencies a student can see but also has additional resources. To request a Lab account, please email Victoria Rahn or Scott Johns.

UW System & Vendor Resources

Updates since webinar was recorded:

  • All UW 4-year and 2-year institutions and branch campuses, along with the technical schools and tribal colleges have their equivalencies in the system.
  • Standardized exam equivalencies have since been loaded into Transferology. UWL has equivalencies for the following exams:
    • AP
    • CLEP
    • IB
  • UWL's military equivalencies are not in Transferology, except for the Community College of the Air Force and the United States Military Academy. If you have a student with a question about a military transcript, they should contact the Admissions Office for assistance.
  • Students can filter their course bundles by program. UWL's current undergraduate programs/majors have been added into the system.
  • Courses that do not transfer have been loaded and will appear as "misses."
  • Notifications from students requesting information will go to and be handled by Admissions. 

Faculty and staff may watch the above recorded webinar as many times as needed. They may also access the vendor's support documentation on Transferology Lab to review written directions instead of watching the above video.

There are opportunities to sign up for additional training webinars in the "support documentation" links at the bottom of each page in the Lab. These webinars are not school specific. The pertinent one for UWL advisors are Transferology-related:

  • Transferology®: Helping Students Know How Their Courses Will Transfer
