Greater Greensboro Consortium

The Greater Greensboro Consortium (GGC) is designed to expand the options available to degree-seeking students who are currently enrolled in one of the seven 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. The consortium program is only available for the fall and spring semesters. Please send the completed admission application (visiting students only) to Andrial Cheeks at

Participating Institutions

Any college or university approved by the GGC to participate in the cross-registration program. These include Elon University, Greensboro College, GTCC, Guilford College, High Point University, N.C. A&T State University, and UNC-Greensboro.

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. Early Middle College or Career and College Promise students are not eligible to take courses through the Consortium program.

Consortium students must have a 2.0 cumulative GPA or higher at their HOME campus to participate.

Students must be eligible to take English 111 and Math 143, MAT 152, or MAT 171 courses without developmental co-requisites or have already completed these aforementioned English and Math courses.


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' coursework 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.
