    To derive the most benefit from the Midwest College Consortiums, visit your school's consortium office, the registrar's office, and the study abroad office on your campus.

    Besides the Midwest College Consortiums, there are consortiums in about every region of the United States. Depending on your schools of choice, be sure to check these out and see what they have to offer.

    Some consortia partnerships are between schools that are located in or around a central location, such as the Claremont (California) College Consortium, others such as the Midwest College Consortiums member The Committee on International Cooperation consist of schools in the same central region, but scattered throughout the midwestern United States.

    Still other members of the Midwest College Consortiums are schools in the same city, but not necessarily next door to each other, such as the Greater Cincinnati Consortium of Colleges and Universities.
