Ferrum Online

Ferrum College is offering variety of online courses through the College Consortium, a network of accredited colleges and universities that share online course offerings.  The course equivalencies below indicate approved online College Consortium courses and the Ferrum College equivalent.    The varying sessions within multiple terms reflect Ferrum College’s commitment to ensuring students have access to the courses they need to complete their degree. The consortium courses also provide students with the opportunity to get ahead in coursework or to repeat a course to improve their grade point average.  It is important to note that a College Consortium course will affect your grade-point average just like a Ferrum College course.

Academic Accommodations

If you believe you may need academic accommodations during any Consortium term, as related to a disability and your course, please notify Professor Nancy Beach, OAA Director.  When possible, notifying OAA before the start date will help with the timeliness of granting the accommodations for your request.

Students enrolled in a Ferrum College Consortium class may be eligible for academic accommodations that align with their disability documentation.  If you would like information about academic accommodations, you may contact Nancy Beach nbeach@ferrum.edu for assistance or to discuss the process.

Requests for accommodations must be made promptly, and are not retroactive in most cases.
