Policies and Procedures

Cross Registration

By means of cross-registration, students may be permitted to take courses at other colleges and universities. Please see the various types of cross-registration agreements below for appropriate information regarding dates, deadlines and regulations. "Home institution" is defined as the institution where a student is officially matriculated and pursuing a degree or certificate. "Host institution" is defined as the institution a student is visiting for the purpose of cross-registration. Students must comply with the policies and procedures of both the home and host institutions and are encouraged to contact the host institution in advance to learn about specific institutional requirements, procedures and policies.

Initial approval must be granted by the appropriate college officials at the student's home institution prior to cross-registration at the host institution. Cross-registration is not available in mini-semesters, summer sessions or winter intersessions. Although the student is not charged tuition, he/she is responsible for all applicable fees at the host institution. Contact your Registrar's Office for further information.

Interested students may contact the Registrar's Office at (518) 629-4574. For specific part of term start dates and related registration deadlines, please refer to the registration publications.
