Consortium Visitor Program
The Christian College Consortium Exchange sponsors a student visitors program intended as an enrichment to those disciplines where personnel and courses may be somewhat limited. Normally this one-semester experience should be part of the junior year or the first semester of the senior year. Application forms and a descriptive brochure are available from the registrar.
The other 12 members of the Christian College Consortium are Asbury College, Wilmore, KY; Bethel College, St. Paul, MN; Gordon College, Wenham, MA; Greenville College, Greenville, IL; Houghton College, Houghton, NY; Malone College, Canton, OH; Messiah College, Grantham, PA; Seattle Pacific University, Seattle, WA; Taylor University, Upland, IN; Trinity College, Deerfield, IL; Westmont College, Santa Barbara, CA; and Wheaton College, Wheaton, IL.
Although spending a semester at another Christian institution can be very beneficial, there are budgetary limits on the number of students that can be approved for off-campus, semester-long programs. Students should not assume they will automatically be approved for the Consortium Visitor Program and may want to consider applying for one of the other programs as well.
The program permits a student in good standing to enroll for one semester at one of the other consortium colleges. Qualifying students must have at least a 3.0 grade point average, have completed prior to application one or more semesters free of academic or citizenship probation, and have been approved by the selection committee.
Selection to the above programs will be based on the academic purposes involved, grade point average, citizenship, classification, and the extent to which the student has or has not had diverse educational experiences.
