The University of Georgia, on behalf of its Graduate School, and the Medical College of Georgia, on behalf of its School of Graduate Studies, have signed an agreement that will enable students from one institution to enroll in graduate courses at the other institution.
The agreement provides that on a space-available basis doctoral students who are graduate research assistants or graduate teaching assistants at either institution will now be able to take advantage of the resources and strengths at both institutions and have more exposure to cutting-edge research in health affairs areas. This mutually beneficial arrangement makes accessing the other institution more convenient for these students.
“We are very excited about this partnership with MCG,” says Maureen Grasso, dean of the Graduate School at UGA. “By being able to participate in courses at both UGA and MCG, these students will have the opportunity for a richer educational experience and will benefit from the unique aspects of each.”
Although initially students from the home institution will be required to apply to the host institution as graduate non-degree students, they may then enroll in courses for subsequent semesters without reapplying. No application fee will be assessed. Along with other requirements, students must enroll for a minimum of nine credit hours combined between the home and host institutions and maintain at least a 3.0 grade point average at both to remain eligible to participate in the program.
