Work with Unmatched Courses

A student's credit history will sometimes have courses that don’t exist in a school's current course offerings. Most often this happens when a student has transferred from another school or when the school has recently changed or discontinued courses. These courses are Unmatched Courses.

Why Match Unmatched Courses

Credit history is an important part of calculating prerequisite and diploma requirements in Xello. You can match courses in a student’s credit history that your school doesn’t offer to existing courses that are similar. These courses will then be counted toward subject area graduation requirements and prerequisites, as though the student had taken the courses offered at your school.

Unmatched courses that cannot be matched to courses at your school will still be counted as elective credits toward a student's diploma.
