Purpose of the Consortium
- If you are an undergraduate, degree-seeking student who is enrolled full time at your institution, but you need to take a course that is not offered at your institution, you may apply to complete that course at another consortium school.
- The consortium agreement helps you proceed toward graduation without interruption in your degree progression due to limited course availability on your home campus.
- Course selection is limited to courses NOT offered at the home institution. If you have a question about which courses you may take, please contact the registrar’s office at your home institution.
- A student may not enroll at the Graduate level.
- Internships, independent studies, study abroad coursework, directed readings, and continuing education courses are excluded from registration.
- Only courses that can be posted for academic credit on the Home institution’s transcript (at the minimum for elective credit) will be approved for registration.
- A student must take courses for regular grades (A, B, C, etc.). The student may not elect special grade type options such as pass/no credit, or audit for courses through GCC registration unless course is solely graded in this manner.
- Courses at a host institution are subject to space availability.
- Students must adhere to the add/drop dates of the host institution.
Registration and Fees
- Tuition for courses taken at the host institution will be waived.
- Related additional fees (music, art supplies, etc.) are the responsibility of the student, to be paid to the host institution
- The actual grade you earn will be applied to the transcript of the Home Institution. The Host Institution will send official transcripts for students enrolled in the GCC to their Home Institutions at the conclusion of the semester attended.
- If you have a financial hold on your account, your transcripts will not be sent.
- Credit will be considered transfer credit and will not be calculated in your GPA.
