Course requests - consider transfer credits for prerquisites

Currently, according to this kb article, course requests cannot consider transfer credits as prerequisites. This causes a problem for us, as we have many students who took, for example, Algebra 1 in 8th grade at another school before enrolling at our high school. Without this functionality, we basically can't use the prerequisites feature of course requests.


Please consider adding support for transfer courses as prerequisites in the course request module.

    We have many students who transfer in, and it causes issues with their course requests when they completed prereqs at a different school. We also have all our migrated grades from our initial implementation in as transfer grades, so until all these students graduate their prerequisites will not work properly. This would be a great feature to add!

    This should absolutely be a feature in the new Blackbaud system. It worked in the old system, and this is a huge step backwards as we now have to manually process hundreds of registration forms for students who met a prereq through transfer credit.

    Not being able to use our grades that we brought in from our previous system, really hinders our ability to schedule for the next year. Sad that this hasn't been fixed.

    PLEASE add this feature!! This royally messed us up last year as our first year using k-12 and all our "import data" was transfer and now this year having to attack the issue again. We're a private school and 50% of students are transfer! (crying face)

    We just discovered this problem today. We are new to Blackbaud this year. So, all of our classes from past years are transfer classes. We were planning on having students request classes tomorrow. We now have to manually process 600 students?

    I really can't believe transfer courses are not included in the analysis. This makes this feature irrelevant because you now have to double-check everything. Transfer classes really need to be included.
