Consortium

Gallaudet University is a member of the Consortium of Universities of the Washington Metropolitan Area. The purpose of the program is to provide Gallaudet students with opportunities to augment or supplement their academic curriculum. Students can take advantage of a variety  of accessible diverse academic offerings, enhance their major curriculum, or explore new interests.

Students who are enrolled in Consortium member institutions attend classes at the other campuses with these credits considered as resident credit at their own institutions.

Information regarding courses/credits:

  • Credits earned through the consortium are considered residence credits and thus may fulfill academic requirements of the University (department program waivers or substitution action may be required).
  • Courses that do not carry degree credit at the visited school will not be counted for degree credits at Gallaudet University. Gallaudet University will not honor credits earned through consortium cross registration for any course that is considered a non-credit course.

Information for all student participants of the Washington Metro Area Consortium Cross Registration Program:

  • Students are expected to follow the regulations governing academic integrity and personal conduct at visited institutions.
  • Students enrolled <matriculated> at two or more consortium institutions are not eligible to participate in consortium registration at those institutions.

Review course options at Gallaudet and other schools with your academic advisor

UG students are typically permitted to enroll in only one consortium course per semester unless special permission is given by the Gallaudet Undergraduate Consortium Advisor. You will need to make an appointment to meet with Thelma Schroeder -  the Undergraduate Consortium Advisor to discuss course options for the Consortium Program. Please remember to make an appointment to discuss your Consortium request and authorization.

Be course registered (pre-registered) in equal number of course credits at Gallaudet to submit a Consortium cross registration request for course credits at a Consortium institution.

Complete the "Undergraduate Consortium Registration Authorization" form and obtain the signed approval of your academic advisor, Gallaudet Consortium Advisor, and the appropriate associate dean. UG Consortium Authorization forms are printable from this link and are also available in the Registrar's Office.

Submit requests no later than 5-6 weeks ahead of the institution's semester or summer session start date to insure adequate time for processing at both institutions. The processing time will also help you meet your needs with regard to your best options for scheduling your semester, special requests for interpreting services, being notified of permissions required or to make appropriate decisions with regard to waitlisted/closed and cancelled courses. Be sure your student account is cleared in order to maintain active career status, keep your semester schedule intact and insure that any Consortium course you are also pre-registered for at another institution is not officially dropped.

Graduate Students

Graduate students requesting participation in the Consortium Cross Registration program may seek authorization with the following criteria met:

  1. Be an active degree-seeking student at Gallaudet University
  2. Be in good academic standing
  3. Have good campus and financial standing
  4. Permission from graduate academic department and the Dean of the Graduate School

Generally, graduate students may register for no more than 50% of the credits taken for a semester at a consortium institution. An exception is made for doctoral students, who may register for up to 40% of their career credits at a consortium institution.

Student NOTES: All Gallaudet students are required to adhere to Consortium policies both designed by Gallaudet University as well at all institutions within the Consortium Program.

Consortium participants pay their home school tuition but must pay all course, parking, transportation, material and library fees themselves. All courses that have special fees will have a 'transcript block' set on their record until the visited school officially renders the account status cleared.

Opportunities to take additional Consortium courses are contingent on successful performance in the student's currently enrolled consortium course.

The Registrar's Office will provide interpreter information with the Consortium Program Cross Registration Request which will be submitted to the student support office at the Consortium school.

Consortium courses cannot be audited.  All Consortium course drops and course withdrawals are subject to calendar dates.

Payment of tuition for Consortium courses will be made at the rate of and to the student's home campus.

For more information about the Consortium Program registration procedures please feel free to contact: Barbara Proctor.

*Students with negative campus judicial concerns will not be able to complete the request/pre-registration process.
