Cross College Alliance connects Sarasota students
The course catalog for the Spring semester includes over 200 separate courses that students can add to their contract. But even with so many courses, it is natural to want an even broader selection of courses to choose from. For those willing to jump through a few extra hoops, the Cross College Alliance can provide students even more courses to choose from.
The Cross-College Alliance is an arrangement between New College, State College of Florida, the University of South Florida’s Sarasota-Manatee campus and the Ringling College of Art and Design that allows their students to engage in the others’ classes. A student can enroll in up to one course at each of the neighboring campuses per semester.
To apply for this program, students must fill out a form listing the courses they are seeking to take and turn it in to New College’s Cross-Campus Coordinator and Registrar Brian Scholten. After he and said student’s advisor approve, the request is sent to the respective college. Students will be allowed to attend those courses on a space-available basis.
Students must meet the requirements for the host institution as well as New College, including academic standards, immunization records and documentation for international students. Students would need to pay any course-required lab or studio fees.
The deadline to apply for courses off campus for the 2020 spring semester is Nov. 27.
