Greater Greensboro Consortium

The Greater Greensboro Consortium (GGC) is a program designed to expand the options available to degree-seeking students who are currently enrolled in one of the eight colleges and universities in the surrounding area. Its primary purpose is to assist a student in registering for a course(s) elsewhere that is unavailable in a given semester on the student’s home campus.

Participating Institutions

Any college or university approved by the GGC to participate in the cross-registration program. These include Bennett, Elon, Greensboro, GTCC, Guilford, High Point, NC A&T SU, and UNCG.

Home Campus

The participating institution at which a student is enrolled in a degree program.

Host Campus

A participating institution (other than a student’s home campus) at which a student takes one or more courses for credit.

Consortium Eligibility

Consortium students must be degree-seeking students, currently enrolled in one of the participating institutions. They must have the permission of the coordinating officer (normally the Registrar) from their HOME Campus. Consortium students may not cross-register for courses inappropriate to the degree they seek or to their class status; for example, sophomores can take sophomore level classes and undergraduates may take only undergraduate courses. Consortium students must have a 2.0 cumulative GPA or higher at their HOME campus to participate. Completion of developmental coursework (English, Reading and Math) is required prior to taking a course through the consortium program.

Limits

There is no limit to the number of courses that consortium students may take at other institutions, although students must be enrolled for at least six semester hours at the home institution (GTCC). At least one-half of students course work must be completed at the HOME campus each semester. This program is not intended for courses that are designed to be self-supporting, so independent studies are not available.
