Greater Greensboro Consortium

Opportunities to take classes at other institutions

Greensboro College is a member of the Greater Greensboro Consortium (GGC), which means that our students may take approved courses at any of the following institutions: North Carolina A&T State University, Bennett College, Elon University, Guilford Technical Community College, Guilford College, High Point University, and the University of North Carolina at Greensboro.

The consortium arrangement exists for fall and spring semesters only. Students who wish to take courses elsewhere during the summer must complete a Prior Approval form (available from the Registrar’s Office) to be sure credits transfer back to Greensboro College as needed to satisfy degree requirements.

 

To take advantage of this opportunity, students should:

  • Consult with their advisor and identify course(s) they wish to take through the GGC;
  • Complete a consortium registration form (available in the registrar’s office);
  • Secure your advisor’s signature and identification of which of the GC courses the course(s) identified will cover;
  • Register for your Greensboro College courses; and,
  • Submit the completed consortium registration form to the registrar’s office.

 

To be eligible to take courses through the consortium, you must:

  • maintain a cumulative 2.0 GPA or better;
  • be a first-degree-seeking student; and
  • be taking at least as many hours at GC as you plan to take at the host institution.

For information about courses that are available at other schools, the consortium registration date at other schools, and more general information, please visit the Greater Greensboro Consortium.

Please note: Greensboro College students may not take general education courses through the consortium. If you wish request exception to this policy, complete a petition for exception to academic policy, requesting that you be allowed to take a general education course through the consortium. A petition that is not approved results in the consortium course counting as an elective rather than as the general education requirement you were attempting to satisfy.
