Consortium Course Enrollment
Consortium Course Enrollment Through Acadeum
Students enrolled in the Bachelor of Science - Adolescence to Young Adult (AYA) Education, Bachelor of Science - Middle Childhood Education (MCE), or the AYA or MCE tracks of the Post Baccalaureate Licensure Program are required to be highly qualified in their selected content areas (English Language Arts, Mathematics, Science, Social Studies). Required courses may be taken online directly with Franklin, or online through Acadeum through Franklin’s consortium agreement with the Council of Independent Colleges (CIC). Selected online courses at consortial institutions are made available through the Acadeum Course Share platform.
