Graduate Catalog 2003-2004
Bowling Green State University (BGSU), the University of Toledo (UT), and Medical College of Ohio (MCO) sponsor a cooperative graduate program through which graduate students enrolled in a degree program at their home institution may enroll and receive graduate credit for classes offered at the HOST institution. Approval by the graduate dean designate and the program graduate coordinator of the student’s home institution is required for each registration. Credit and grades earned count as resident credit (not as transfer credit) at the home institution.
BGSU students who enroll in the cooperative graduate program at UT or MCO are required to complete a minimum of 51 percent of the courses in their graduate degree programs on the BGSU main campus. Part-time graduate students who participate in the program pay the instructional and, if applicable, the nonresident fees at the host institution on a per-hour basis. Instructional and nonresident fees will be waived by UT or MCO for a BGSU student who either pays full-time instructional and nonresident fees as a graduate student or who has a fee waiver as a graduate assistant.
A full-time cooperative graduate student must be registered for 11 graduate credits per term at BGSU. UT or MCO students must be registered for 12 graduate credits. If the student does not complete the full-time registration requirement at the home institution (i.e., withdraws from courses during the term), then the student will be billed retroactively by the host institution and their grades at the host institution will be withheld.
Graduate students who are funded at BGSU may enroll for a maximum of six credits per term at the host institution with a tuition grant for all fees. Graduate students who are funded at UT or MCO may enroll for a maximum of six credits per term at the host institution with a tuition grant for instructional fees. However, a tuition grant is provided only when registration at the home university represents at least two-thirds of the total (home + host) registration for the academic term.
