available to its students, Thomas More College is a member of the
Greater Cincinnati Consortium of Colleges and Universities (GCCCU).
Students from the participating institutions are permitted to enroll in a course or courses offered by a Consortium college or university on a space-available basis.

Students must be in good academic standing to participate in the Consortium. Students' consortium loads may not exceed one-half of their total class load for a given semester. Students are responsible for ensuring they have taken the necessary pre-requisites for a consortium course, and for ensuring that the course taken will fulfill the desired requirement. The course also must be unavailable at Thomas More College and a student may only take 16 credit hours through the consortium over the course of his/her undergraduate program.
