The Consortium of Universities of the Washington Metropolitan Area gives students the opportunity to take courses that American University does not offer. If you are interested in a registering for a course at another school, please contact that department to determine if they require any prerequisites or placement exams. Before you can enroll, the syllabus for the class must be reviewed and approved by the appropriate academic department at American University.
It is important to leave generous commuting time in your schedule if you choose to take a consortium class. Please also note that you will only be registered for a consortium course in there is still space available during the first week of school at that institution.
