OCICU Online Consortium

Online Consortium Courses

The Sage Colleges belong to the Online Consortium of Independent Colleges and Universities (OCICU), an association of regionally-accredited colleges and universities throughout the United States that offer online coursework.  If a matriculated student needs a course that Sage does not currently offer or is required for graduation, it may be possible to cross-register for the course online through one of the OCICU provider schools. Students taking OCICU courses pay their regular Sage tuition, and credits earned appear on the transcript with a grade that figures toward the GPA.  OCICU courses count as credits taken at Sage for purposes of financial aid calculations and residency.

Course registration deadlines, course/term start and end dates, and drop/course withdrawal dates for OCICU courses vary and are based on the specific OCICU provider institution’s policy. The student is responsible for adhering to the OCICU college’s and The Sage Colleges’ registration requirements, as well as The Sage Colleges’ academic calendar.

Interested students should speak with their academic advisor and the Director of Studies, SPCE, prior to completing and submitting a Request for Permission to Cross-Register for OCICU Course form to request approval.
