A student enrolled at McMurry University may also enroll in courses at either Abilene Christian University or Hardin-Simmons University. Courses taken through intercollegiate enrollment count toward degree requirements provided approval has been secured in advance from the student's academic advisor, chairman of department, Registrar's Office, and the Business Office.
Intercollegiate Enrollment can be beneficial to McMurry students in several ways. First, the other Abilene Universities offer majors not offered at McMurry. The number of fields of study available to McMurry students is enhanced through the intercollege program. Second, schedule conflicts can often be alleviated by enrolling in a course at one of the other universities. And, finally, some students use the intercollege program to broaden their exposure to instructors and other course offerings.
Courses taken through intercollegiate enrollment are considered a part of a regular semester's work and are averaged in with courses taken at McMurry. Courses taken through intercollege enrollment are considered in figuring eligibility for the Dean's List and the Dean's Honor Roll, as well as probation and suspension status. Students who enroll in the intercollege program assume responsibility for the charges incurred at participating institutions.
Federal financial aid regulations dictate that no more than one-fourth of hours attempted may be completed at other than the home institution.
