Cross Registration 

The purpose of cross college and university registration is to provide opportunities for enriched educational programs by permitting students at any of the PCHE institutions to take courses at any other PCHE institution. The opportunity to cross register is open to each full-time graduate and undergraduate student enrolled in a PCHE college or university. Part-time students are normally not permitted to cross register.

What are the benefits?

  • No additional tuition charge; however students must pay special course or laboratory fees to the host institution.
  • Full credit and grade are transferred to the home institution.
  • There is a broader range of course offerings to choose from.

What are the guidelines?

  • Enrollment is limited to no more than one course per term/semester.
  • Approval of the dean or designated individual from the home institution is needed.
  • Student’s advisor or dean must assure course eligibility.
  • Students may not cross register for classes at a PCHE institution in which they are already enrolled as a student.
  • Academic rules and regulations of the host institution prevail.
  • Students do not acquire status at the host institution but have library and bookstore privileges.
  • Permission is required to add or to drop a course after the home and host institutions’ deadlines.
  • Students enrolled in approved joint co-op programs between two PCHE institutions are exempt from the requirement of being full-time at either school.
  • Cross-registration applies to only fall or spring terms.
  • For many students it is not advisable to cross register for any class in the last term before graduation.
