Associated Colleges of the Twin Cities Hamline University participates in a consortium of five Twin Cities private liberal arts colleges called the Associated Colleges of the Twin Cities (ACTC). The ACTC combines the community atmosphere of a small liberal arts college with the diversity of opportunities of a large university. The purpose of the consortium is to allow students enrolled at one institution to explore the environments, and take advantage of the strengths, of the others. Cross-registration is available without additional cost to the student, provided the coursework is relevant to a Hamline degree. The 10,500 undergraduate students of the ACTC have access to approximately 4,000 courses, 1,000 faculty members and 80 majors. Member schools include: Augsburg College Hamline University Macalester College St. Catherine University University of St. Thomas To participate in the ACTC cross-registration program, Hamline students must be full-time, degree-seeking students. Students may enroll in one course per term as long as the course is not also offered at Hamline during the same term. All courses taken under this program are considered to be Hamline courses and are recorded on the student's Hamline transcript. Credits and grades earned are included in the calculation of the grade point average. The ACTC exchange program is not in effect for summer school classes.
