                             What is CCGS?

     Known as the Cooperating Colleges of Greater Springfield (CCGS), 
the association was formed in 1970 by the presidents of each college of the 
charter institutions.  Today, the member colleges/universities include:  
American International College, Bay Path College, Elms College, Holyoke Community 
College, Springfield College, Springfield Technical Community College, Western 
New England University, and Westfield State University.

     These eight area public and private institutions have established
the CCGS to enhance the educational experience through the use of
cooperative programs and services, including cross-registration,
student-faculty inter-college library privileges, joint student activities,
academic cooperation, and student activity calendars.

     Undergraduate students may take courses for credit at a cooperating
institution when such courses are not available at their own institutions. 
Interested students apply for courses through their home college/university 
registrar and academic advisor.  Students are billed for CCGS registration 
as part of their home school tuition.

     Credit and grades for courses completed at cooperating colleges are
applied to the student's record at the home college.  Generally, CCGS
cross-registration is limited to undergraduate courses offered in fall or
spring semesters.  Continuing Education courses are not included.
