Undergraduate CIC Online Registration

Online Course Sharing Consortium

Registration Opens Monday, April 26: Summer 2021

Hood College has joined the CIC Online Course Sharing Consortium, a network of accredited colleges and universities that share online offerings, to provide Hood College students with access to additional, flexible online course options. Consortium courses offer students to opportunity to get ahead in coursework and/or repeat a course to improve their grade point average. Summer courses offered through the consortium have been pre-approved by Hood College and are already mapped to Hood College course equivalents, which means that consortium courses may count toward major or elective requirements. Course credits earned through the consortium will show up on students’ Hood College transcript after successful completion of the consortium course.
