As the number of globally mobile students continues to soar, delivering efficient and timely transfer credit evaluations is more crucial than ever in the competitive higher education environment. Providing institutions with the tools to automate their evaluation processes will eliminate manual procedures, reduce turnaround times and improve enrollment.
AcademyOne’s P360 is an administrative system for recognizing and evaluating all prior learning (including credentials, qualifications, courses, skills, knowledge areas, competencies and assessments) for credit offers. With an automated workflow, appropriate personnel are guided through each phase of the evaluation process including validation, articulation and conveyance. P360’s automatic routing and approval tracking ensures all credential evaluations are completed consistently and in compliance with policies.
Through P360’s Learner Modeler, potential learners can access information to estimate how their learning could be given credit. Institutions can create and publish prescriptive pathways in the Credit Modeler with a checklist of requirements for learners to follow and complete by program of study. The Learner Center allows them to create a portfolio of their education and knowledge which they can use to initiate and review the progress of credit petitions. Outcome decisions can be published as a guide for other learners to be awarded the same credit given the same focus of studies.
Our Virtual Transfer Advisor is a guidance application that helps advisors and students measure their academic progress against transfer agreements and degree requirements. They can easily estimate just where they stand with credit already earned and perform transfer degree audits to determine the best pathway available to them. With the Virtual Transfer Advisor, institutions are able to streamline their advising process to provide students with clear-cut, actionable and valuable information.
Current and prospective students can explore colleges and universities that have Dual and Guaranteed Admission Agreements with your institution, by major. They can check out the highlights or view all of the details for each agreement.
Students who know the institution and program to which they wish to transfer, can quickly check their progress. They can view academic maps that show the scope and succession of coursework required to complete a credential and guarantee a smooth transition to a baccalaureate degree.
Any student can learn how your institution will accept credit for their transfer courses, as well as find institutions to which your courses will effectively transfer. They can search by institution, location or equivalency.

Colleges and universities manually administering reverse transfers are faced with the time and monetary consuming processes of compiling student credit and performing audit evaluations. Our Reverse Transfer solution leverages reverse transfer programs between two- and four-year institutions by assimilating data from student information systems and automating the degree audit process. It optimizes policies and procedures, easing administrative burdens and allowing institutions to maximize their collaborations using technology infrastructure.
The RTS enhances communication, identifies more potential completers, absorbs data from multiple student systems and runs an automated degree audit - allowing institutions to better advise near completers and confer degrees to those who have earned them.
Four-year institutions can query institutional records to identify eligible students for a reverse transfer associate degree and upload them into RTS.
RTS emails students eligible to participate in the reverse transfer process. Students must consent to the sharing of their course histories by opting in.
Two- and four-year institutions upload course histories for consenting students into RTS.
RTS runs a simulated degree audit on all of those who have consented, mapping each student’s course history against preloaded transfer pathway program requirements. Students that have met, or are close to meeting, the requirements for an associate degree are identified and their simulated degree audits are available for formal review by the two-year college.
Students meeting degree requirements are notified by the two-year college and conferred a degree. Students that don’t meet degree requirements are advised by the two-year college of any outstanding needed for completion.
