The Cross Registration Program allows degree-seeking students access to academic opportunities not available at their own institutions to maintain their current home institution program of study. All registrations are subject to the approval of home and host registrars.
SOCHE Cross Registration Program
The cross-registration program allows degree-seeking students access to academic opportunities not available at their home institutions, to maintain their current home institution program of study. Students enrolled at a college or university within SOCHE may register for courses that are available at other SOCHE institutions and GC3 institutions.
NOTE: Ohio University currently does not participate in SOCHE’s cross-registration program.

- Students may not register for a course that is available at the home institution during the same term.
- Credit hours taken at the host institution may not exceed credit hours taken at the home institution per academic term and are subject to the home registrar approval.

- Undergraduate program: 30 hours
- Graduate programs: Subject to the discretion of the two institutions
- While completing a program of study, students from two-year institutions may cross-register for courses at four-year institutions and vice versa, as long as the courses are required to obtain the associate’s, bachelor’s, or graduate degree for which the student is currently enrolled at the home institution.
- The home and the host institutions reserve the right to require additional requirements and the right to override eligibility requirements. If proper procedures are not followed, the student will be ineligible for the cross-registration program and will be responsible for all charges incurred at the host institution.

STUDENT CROSS-REGISTRATION PROCEDURES
- Using the student eligibility checklist above, students should first determine if they are eligible for cross-registration.
- Contact the home institution’s cross-registration coordinator to initiate the cross-registration process. The home institution also may require additional forms to be completed.
- Apply to the host institution as a NON-DEGREE-SEEKING student.
- Review the host institution’s (the cross-registration institution) registration site to determine if there is space available in the course(s) sought. Course registration information includes course offerings, contact information, registration times, and information on prerequisites and fees. DO NOT REGISTER YOURSELF – that will happen via the cross-registration form.
- Download the fillable cross-registration form PDF file from this site or obtain the file from the home institution cross-registration coordinator. (Adobe Acrobat Reader is required for opening and saving this file. It will not function properly in other PDF reader platforms.)
- Fill out Section 1 of the cross-registration form PDF with personal information.
- Fill out Section 2 of the cross-registration form PDF with information about the course(s) to be added or dropped. Be sure to list a lab as a separate course. Obtain departmental or instructor approval, if required, and have that person digitally sign the appropriate spot.
- Digitally sign the cross-registration form PDF and attach a copy of current photo ID in the appropriate spot.
- Save the PDF under a new file name, then send the cross-registration form file via email to obtain digital signatures from the appropriate individuals for institutional approvals in this order:
- Home institution academic advisor
- Home institution cross-registration coordinator
- Host academic advisor, if required. If host instructor or departmental approval is required for your desired course, be sure that individual also signs in the appropriate spot(s) in Section 2 of the form.
- Host institution cross-registration coordinator – After approval has been granted at the home institution, the student sends the approved cross-registration form PDF to the host institution cross-registration coordinator, who will finalize the student’s registration in the requested course(s).
- The fillable cross-registration form should be used for both adding and dropping courses. Institutional approvals are required for dropped courses, as well as added.
- Failure to obtain the necessary approvals can result in rejection of the cross-registration application.
- The completed cross-registration form must be submitted electronically to the host institution cross-registration coordinator no later than the first day of that institution’s term. Otherwise, the student will be responsible for all charges.
- Once the host institution cross-registration coordinator receives the completed form, with all appropriate approvals in place, and determines the form has been completed correctly, they will register the student for the requested course(s) or will drop the course(s) requested.
HOME & HOST INSTITUTION CROSS-REGISTRATION PROCEDURES
- Home institution cross-registration coordinators should NOT sign forms until the student’s academic advisor has first approved the course(s). Host institution cross-registration coordinators should approve only forms that have been completed correctly and have all appropriate signatures.
- At the end of the open registration period of each semester or quarter, the host institution will notify the home institution of students who are cross-registered and provide a copy of this report to SOCHE. The final, completed, and signed cross-registration form for each student should be emailed to SOCHE.
- Add/Drop Procedures: Students must utilize the cross-registration form for both adding and dropping classes. Any class adds must be completed for both the home and the host institution, following each school’s respective procedures. Any class drops must be completed within the host institution’s deadlines and procedures. If there is a change in the student’s status, the host institution will notify both the home institution and SOCHE.
- Grades/Transcripts: Grades are transcribed according to the academic standards and grading practices of the host institution. Quarter hours are converted to semester hours, and vice versa, as appropriate to the home institution’s conversion formula. After completion of the course(s), the host institution should send a transcript or grade report should be sent via electronic means (not via USPS mail) to the cross-registration coordinator at the home institution for inclusion on the student’s official transcript.
TUITION AND FEES
- Regular tuition and fees are payable to the home institution by that school’s deadline.
- Students may be charged additional fees for specialty classes, such as software, lab fees, database access, etc. Students are responsible to the host institution for all special or extra fees.
- IMPORTANT: Some graduate-level courses can result in additional charges that become the responsibility of the student to pay. Before registering for a graduate-level course, consult with the host institution regarding fees or charges that may not be covered by the cross-registration agreement.
- GC3 institutions reserve the right to charge an administrative fee which is paid directly to the host institution.
Students requiring accommodations from accessibility services should contact their HOME institution Accessibility/Disabilities Office and request that the home institution provide host institution with an accommodations letter. The student’s home institution Accessibility Office should contact the host institution’s office regarding host institution guidelines, then the home institution’s office is responsible for communicating this information to the student. The student is responsible for informing faculty, as needed, or the student may request that the host institution’s Accessibility Office inform the appropriate faculty.
