Tri-College Course Exchange Revised - Limiting to One Course per Semester

Published: 21 June 2011
Important NOTICE to Tri-College Community

Attention Tri-College Campus Communities:
Before advising and registrations begins, Tri-College University would like to announce – effective fall term 2011, the course exchange will be limited to one course per undergraduate student per semester per participating campus. This change will help to align the three partner institutions equitably in courses exchanged and staying within the intent of the mission of the TCU Course Exchange and Cooperative Agreement.
Undergraduate students are required to take at least one course at their home campus when participating in the Course Exchange Program (excluding summer session). Exceptions to the one-course/semester limit among campuses are as follows:

  • Students who have declared a Tri-College minor (one not offered by their home campus).  The minor must be declared and on file with the home institution, and will be confirmed by the home campus at the point of registration.  The host campus will confirm that the courses being requested are required for the minor;
  • Students who request enrollment in either the Aerospace Studies/Air Force ROTC (AS) or Military Science/Army ROTC (MS) courses at NDSU;
  • Students who request enrollment in a course/lab pairing (lecture and corresponding lab);
  • Students enrolled in a Vaccinology seminar course are permitted to enroll in one additional class via the Tri-College consortium in the same term;
  • Students enrolled in the Tri-College University Educational Leadership program;
  • Concordia allows exchange by their full-time students to enroll in one course per semester between the partner institutions and then only if the course is not offered at Concordia. Concordia does not participate in the course exchange during the summer semester.
