Summer Classes through the Acadeum Consortium
Saint Rose is now part of a consortium that allows students to take fully online classes from other colleges/universities that have been pre-approved. These courses will show up on the Saint Rose transcript, be part of the Saint Rose cumulative GPA and are part of the Saint Rose bill. Students are charged Saint Rose summer tuition prices. Students will not have to apply for admission to the other college/university or have a transcript through them.
To see a list of pre-approved classes, please use the following link: View pre-approved summer classes.
Students will need to create an account in order to view the course listings. To request enrollment in a class, simply click “Enroll” for the preferred class. The request will go to the Registrar from the other college/university and to the Registrar at Saint Rose who will both need to approve the request. Once approved, the student will be notified.
