The associated colleges of the Twin Cities (formerly an incorporated consortium known as ACTC) are five liberal arts colleges in Saint Paul and Minneapolis, offering cross-registration to their students. The five participating schools are: Macalester College, University of St. Thomas, St. Catherine University, Hamline University, and Augsburg University.
Macalester has approved fall and spring term liberal arts courses as appropriate for cross-registration. Students may take one course per semester on another campus, provided the course is not offered on the home campus. You must be registered for 12 Macalester credits to be eligible for cross-registering.
ACTC Courses must be registered using the Macalester Cross-Registration form.
For all business courses at St. Thomas such as ACCT, BETH, BLAW, BUSN, ENTR, FINC, MGMT, MKTG, OPMT, and REAL, please email [email protected] and put Attn: Course Prerequisites in the Subject Line. In the email explain what prerequisites you have taken and what you wish to take at UST (Dept/Course #/Section) and the UST Business Dept will respond back to you. If they say yes, forward the email to us (as good as a signature) for meeting the prerequisites.
Please be aware that the academic calendars between the schools may differ, which means that start and end dates may not correspond with those at Macalester. The difference in the calendars may mean that your final grade won’t be available at the same time as your Mac final grades.
Please consult the Registrar’s Office at your home school for any questions you may have about cross-registration. Cross-registered courses appear on the transcript of the student’s home school.
