The Seat Bank allows member institutions of MarylandOnline (MOL) to share seats in online courses. The program is different from transferring credits as the student’s home school “adopts” the seat from a member institution and makes that course its own. The Seat Bank:
- Allows low-enrollment courses to be filled with students from other colleges.
- Gives students more options for completion by giving them access to courses that may not be available at their home institutions (or courses that are available but full).
- Provides a simplified process that saves students the trouble of transferring courses.
