Yes. In fact, I currently attend three universities and a medical school (The College of William and Mary, Norfolk State University, Old Dominion University, and Eastern Virginia Medical School). In my case, the four institutions are involved in a consortial program in doctoral-level clinical psychology. However, our grades / transcripts / recommendations / financial aid are handled as though we attend each institution separately. My understanding is that several universities are involved in SOME sort of consortial agreement, so I would contact these programs and ask them for guidance.

Explanations from other Contributors:

  • YES you can attend two colleges at the same time, so long as you can be sure you do not cross over the fin aid. in other words, don't cheat the system, they will find out. other than that you can no problem
  • Yes, you can attend two colleges at a time. You cannot receive financial aid at both schools. If you aren't on financial aid you can do whatever you want to. If you are on financial aid, you must consult your financial aid adviser to find out what the rules are for you.

Note: even if you can do it be sure that you will be able to handle the educational task load.

Not ethically, unless you're enrolled in both of them.

Do you mean at the same time or in the same town? If you mean "time," I think you can, but why would you want to? You need every minute of uninterrupted time to finish the courses of one college, much less take on two colleges.

It is possible. There are some students that need a course not offered by their college for that specific semester that they need. Thus, they take it at another college that is offering the course. Still, there should be a specific reason for taking courses at two different institutions.

For colleges and universities that operate on a regular two semester academic year. A part-time student is any student enrolled for 11 credits or less. 12 credits or more is considered a full-time student.
