Full-time day students at UML may cross-register in courses on a space available basis for no more than two courses per semester at any other institution in the Northeast Consortium of Colleges and Universities in Massachusetts. Colleges in the Consortium are: Endicott College, Gordon College, Marion Court Junior College of Business, Merrimack College, Middlesex Community College, Montserrat School of Visual Art, Northern Essex Community College, North Shore Community College, Salem State College and the University of Massachusetts Lowell. The program’s purpose is to expand educational opportunity for students by permitting them to enroll in courses at any NECCUM institution without payment of tuition beyond that paid to the "home" institution.
Course selection is limited to courses not offered at UML and on a space available basis. The policies of the home institution apply regarding program curriculum requirements and credits earned. Students are responsible for fulfilling course requirements even though calendars and regulations may differ among consortium institutions. If course changes are made, students must notify both the home and host registrars. Lab fees, material fees and any other non-tuition fees required by a particular course are not exempt and must be paid for by the visiting student to the host institution. Students must comply with the regulations of the host institution. UMass Lowell students are not permitted to pursue off-campus courses until an initial evaluation of their academic progress has been made. For information about courses open to (home institution) students, contact the Registrar's office. Other information about the program, the procedure for student participation, restrictions and a statement of student responsibility are also available from the registrar.
Students who attend a school in NECCUM can enroll in the UMass Lowell Marching Band. They should visit the registar's office at their school and complete the NECCUM cross-registration form.
The signed form should be returned to the host school within the first full week of classes. The UMass Lowell course number for Marching Band is 76.106 section 201. The form should be given to the Marching Band director or assistant director for a signature and brought back to the host institution.
