Taking Classes at Consortium Schools
The University of Maryland is a member of the Consortium of Universities of the Washington Metropolitan Area. Other institutions currently associated with the consortium include American University, The Catholic University of America, the University of the District of Columbia, Gallaudet College, George Mason University, Georgetown University, George Washington University, Howard University, Marymount College, Mount Vernon College and Trinity College.
Students enrolled in any one of these institutions are able to attend certain classes at the other institutions and have the credit considered "residence" credits at their own institutions. Grades in these courses are calculated into the student's GPA. The consortium permits both undergraduate and graduate students to participate in programs such as the Research Fellows Program and the National Institute for Citizen Education in the Law.
