Consortium Courses

Offered Through the Council of Independent Colleges

Loras College Summer Courses Offered Through the CIC Course Sharing Consortium.

To provide additional opportunities for students to complete coursework during the summer, Loras participates in the Council of Independent Colleges (CIC) Online Course Sharing Consortium. The consortium allows us to partner with other institutions to make a variety of online (asynchronous) summer coursework available to students.
.
Unlike traditional transfer credits, courses offered through the consortium are accepted as Loras College credits and are included in the calculation of the Loras GPA. This makes the consortium courses a great option for students seeking to boost their GPA by taking a summer course.
