Cross Registration

Cross registration can enrich the education of full-time graduate and undergraduate students of PCHE member institutions by allowing them to take courses at any other PCHE institution. Part-time students are normally not permitted to cross register.

What are the benefits?

  • No additional tuition charge; however students must pay any 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.
