External subjects are general subject areas that you define to categorize external courses.


Set up external subject categories to broadly identify the subjects offered at external institutions, and use those categories to identify which institutions offer courses in those subjects.


For example, one of the entrance requirements at your institution might be four years of high school English. Various high schools might offer classes titled 17th Century English Literature, Mystery Writers of America, and A Journey through Time with Shakespeare. When these classes appear on a student's transcript, they do not readily translate as English courses. If you create a broad external subject of English, you can assign these courses to it to help track your institution's English requirements. Use the School Course Classification page to record the specific course offerings for each subject area.


In this topic, you create an external subject category of Law.
