OCICU Registration

Online Consortium of Independent Colleges and Universities (OCICU)

Students with a cumulative grade point average of 3.0 may, when necessary, request permission to take an online course through OCICU. Courses taken through OCICU count as Holy Family credit and the earned grades are calculated into the semester and cumulative grade point averages. In some instances, the institution offering the course utilizes a grade scheme different than that of Holy Family University. In these instances, the Registrar will assign the grade of the course that most closely adheres ot the Holy Family University undergraduate grade scheme. Students begin the approval process with their academic advisor and must have the permission of the Dean of the school in which the course is offered and the Dean of the school of their major. Students enrolled in OCICU courses agree to abide by the course dates of the offering institutions.

For additional information and to register, please visit the OCICU website.
