CEDAR CREST COLLEGE
ONLINE CONSORTIUM OF INDEPENDENT COLLEGES AND UNIVERSITIES (OCICU)
CROSS REGISTRATION GUIDELINES & APPROVAL FORM

Cedar Crest College OCICU Cross Registration Policy

Cedar Crest is a charter member of the Online Consortium of Independent Colleges and Universities (OCICU), which offers a wide variety of online courses from accredited educational institutions. Students may register only for OCICU courses that have been approved by an academic advisor, appropriate department chairs or program directors, and academic dean. The OCICU course offerings are published in advance of each semester. Students interested in OCICU offerings must speak with an academic advisor for additional information and complete the OCICU Cross Registration Approval Form.

OCICU Advisement

Please note that OCICU courses often have different start and end dates from on-campus Cedar Crest College courses. A majority of OCICU courses are offered in eight-week sessions. Keep in mind that due to our consortium agreement, OCICU course credits are not considered transfer credits; a student’s transcript will record letter grades for completed OCICU coursework. All advisors and students should review the OCICU Student Guidebook prior to registering for classes. The OCICU Student Guidebook is available at http://www.ocicu.org/pdf/OCICU_StudentGuidebook.pdf. Students should download an electronic copy for their reference.

Required Skills for Successful Online Coursework

The skills required for completing an online course include, but are not limited to:
  • Knowledge and comfort in using technology
  • Access to the Internet and computer equipment
  • Self-sufficiency in carrying out tasks
  • Organization and motivation in the completion of assignments
  • Competence in communicating with others in online discussions
  • Proficiency in college-level research and writing
