ACADEUM Course Sharing

Acadeum Course Sharing

Online Consortia Courses

ACADEUM imageTuskegee University (TU) has partnered with Acadeum, a College Consortium that has a network of accredited colleges and universities that share online course offerings. Department Chairs and Instructors can access the Acadeum catalog of online courses after being added as an authorized user**. 

Courses taken through Acadeum are considered institutional credit and impact the student's GPA and graduation requirements in the same way a TU course does. The course will appear on the student's TU transcript as a TU course.

If TU offers the same course during the same term, students will be allowed to register for that class ONLY if there is a scheduling conflict that will delay the student's required course sequence.

TU primarily allows graduating Seniors to take classes through Acadeum. However, other students may be granted permission to take an Acadeum course by meeting certain qualification.

All Acadeum partner schools can access the Acadeum Course Share Administrator Application from the Acadeum website [].

Benefits for Students

  • Enhanced course options, including elective courses
  • Course options for summer and winter
  • Opportunity to take a desired course that is not offered at TU
  • Help support students to graduate on-time

How to Register

Students who believe that they would benefit from enrolling in a course through Acadeum should contact their Department Chair or Academic Advisor for their major. The University will approve courses on an individual student basis.

Enrollment requests CAN ONLY be made by Department Heads/Instructors or Academic Advisors. Please complete the Acadeum Enrollment Request Form then submit it to the Acadeum Administrator, Ms. JaNeen N. Roberts ( for next steps.

Mapping/Approving Courses:

The Office of the Provost, Deans and/or Departments Heads collaborate to approve a list of consortial courses to make available to students. In choosing courses, they review course syllabi, faculty credentials, and additional assessments of learning outcomes data. 

TU functions as Home Institution (HI) and will also operate as a Teaching Institution (TI) beginning Summer 2023. As a HI, TU faculty will approve courses for their students from the inventory of courses within the consortia to which they belong. A HI's preference for consortium-based courses is based on the premises that these courses can be covered by financial aid, grades will positively impact GPA, course can be used under residency requirments, and they can establish full- or part-time status for students. 

**Department Heads/Instructors must sign up for a account (via Acadeum or through the TU Acadeum Administrator) using their TU email. Once Logged in they can locate, approve, and map courses equivalent to TU courses before they appear in our Acadeum catalog and register students for the approved courses. Use the links below to navigate and choose courses.

All payments and financial aid will be processed through TU.
