CIC Humanities Program

Looking for an upper division course in Art History, Global Studies, History, Philosophy, Political Science, or Religious Studies this Spring?

Saint Michael's College is proud to be a participating school in The Council of Independent College's (CIC) Consortium for Online Humanities Instruction program.  For more information about this program, please visit

This program allows Saint Michael's College students a chance to explore upper-level Humanities courses offered by other small, liberal arts institutions in a purely online format. 

To be eligible to register for a CIC course in the Spring 2018 semester students must be full-time (12 credits) undergraduate students at Saint Michael's College.  Interested students should explore the full catalog of CIC offerings and should complete a CIC Registration form.

Completed forms should be returned to the Saint Michael's College Registrar’s Office in Founders Hall, Room 112.  The Registrar’s Office will work with students to cross-register at the partner CIC institution.  Please keep in mind that each partner school may have a different Spring 2018 format and classes may start earlier or run later than the standard Saint Michael's College term.

Courses taken through the CIC program will be considered as part of a student's Spring 2018 courseload, and grades earned through the CIC program will appear on the Saint Michael's College transcript and will be factored in to the Saint Michael's College GPA.  Credits will be awarded at face value: A 3 credit course offered by a CIC member institution will appear as a 3 credit course at Saint Michael's College; a 4 credit course will appear as 4 credits.

CIC registrations are limited to one course per student for the Spring 2018 term.

While there are no special registration fees charged to participate in the CIC program, individual students will be responsible for any course fees assessed by the CIC partner school.  Any fees or special registration pre-requisites or restrictions will be noted at the end of each CIC course in the catalog.

Students will observe all regulations in effect at the host institution during the term in which they are enrolled including, but not limited to, academic integrity policies, calendar deadlines and procedures for withdrawing from classes.

Saint Michael's College will be offering two courses as part of the CIC program: HI-332-A: History of the American Family with Professor Ouellette and MU-249-A: History of Gospel Music with Professor Ellis.  Saint Michael's College students interested in theses courses will NOT be required to register through the CIC Registration form.  Registration for these courses can be completed through KnightVision registration.

Please reference this chart for a complete list of how all other CIC courses will transfer to Saint Michael's College. 

Contact the Registrar’s Office of the home institution for further information. Saint Michael's College students call 802.654.2571 or visit Founders Hall, Room 112.
