New Acadeum Partnership

SUBJECT: New Acadeum Partnership

Greetings Faculty and Academic Advisors,

TAMU-CC announces an exciting new opportunity for our students. This summer, the TAMU System joined the Acadeum course sharing network. The network facilitates online course sharing among institutions that have similar academic standards. Our goal in joining this network is to help students stay on track to degree completion. Students may use course sharing to complete degree requirements when courses are not offered on campus during the term they are needed, or for other justifiable reasons (e.g., medical leave).

Courses taken through the Acadeum course sharing network have several benefits when compared to standard transfer courses:

  • Courses are transcribed as our own, which means students maintain financial aid eligibility
  • Course grades and credits are easily transferred
  • Courses are billed as our own

Only courses that are pre-approved via the Acadeum Course Sharing platform are available for student enrollment, and only when recommended by advisors. Students will not be able to “shop” for online courses on their own to circumvent our course offerings or schedules. 

To determine the approved courses, Susan Murphy ( will contact department chairs and program coordinators to help identify courses. Faculty will identify and approve courses that our students need in the Acadeum network. We will be completing the review of possible courses this semester. If you are interested in participating in this process, please contact your department chair.
