Graduate Catalog 2004-2005
Bowling Green State University, Medical College of Ohio, and The University of Toledo offer graduate students enrolled in degree programs, the unique opportunity to enhance their academic experience by taking advantage of resources provided by the participating institutions through the Graduate Cooperative Enrollment Program. After receiving the approval of their advisor and participating graduate deans, students in the Cooperative Enrollment Program may take coursework at any of the cooperating (host) institutions and receive credit on their home institution’s official transcript.
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.
Graduate students from the University of Toledo and the Medical College of Ohio who seek to enroll under the cooperative registration agreement must submit a completed cooperative enrollment application for the program. Not completing this form may result in holds on grades, registration, and transcript records. The application fee, admission fee, transcripts, test scores, and letters of recommendation are not required.
