Home Institution = the institution where you are matriculated.
Host Institution = the institution with which you are seeking to take additional courses.

1. You must be a full-time matriculated student and take at least one-half of your semester credits at your home institution in order to waive tuition at the host institution.

2. The proposed course(s) cannot be offered by the home institution. If the home campus offers a comparable course, even if not scheduled during the desired term or time of enrollment, then cross- registration will not be approved.

3. You must have the approval of both the home and host institution. You are responsible for ensuring that the course(s) you register for meet the requirements of your degree. If you change your major/minor, the courses you cross-register for may no longer count toward degree requirements.

4. Please NOTE: even if you have the permission of the instructor or have satisfied all pre-requisites/co-requisites necessary for enrollment at the host institution, you must still complete the registration process through the appropriate office at the host institution to be considered officially registered in a course.

5. Registration dates and deadlines vary by college. You are responsible for contacting the host institution for registration-related dates and deadlines and determining which office(s) are responsible for signing your form.

6. You will be responsible for the attendance and academic requirements of the course even if home and host calendars do not coincide.

7. Your signature on the Cross-Registration Agreement is considered approval for the host institution to exchange enrollment, grade, and financial information with your home institution.

8. Enrollment changes may impact your eligibility for financial aid for the current term and/or future terms, (e.g. dropping below full-time). Please consult your Financial Aid Office regarding academic eligibility for financial aid, including satisfactory academic progress standards.

9. You are responsible for notifying the appropriate offices on BOTH campuses if you withdraw from a course(s) (Registrar, Student Accounts, Financial Aid, etc.). Failure to do so can result in a failing grade at the host institution.

10. Your signature on the Cross-Registration Agreement indicates your agreement to abide by all regulations imposed by the host institution (parking, attendance, library rules, etc.). In addition the host institution may apply rules and regulations to incoming students as it deems necessary (e.g., restrictions on classes based on seat availability). Be sure you are aware of those rules before you cross-register.

11. Home institution students have priority for all courses at the college or university, so popular courses may be closed to cross-registrants because of space limitations.

12. Mini-semester, Winter Term, and Summer Session are not covered by the Cross-Registration agreement.

13. All course-related fees in excess of tuition are the responsibility of the student (e.g., lab fees).

14. Please be advised that if you drop below full-time in total between your home & host institution, you may be liable for tuition at either institution.

15. Any Health Center (immunization/records/physical exam, etc.) requirements must be met at BOTH institutions, even if they differ.

16. Registration is the responsibility of the student. You must check with the host institution to confirm how they plan to process your form, enrollment, and any necessary additional information or paperwork required to complete the enrollment process.

How to Process your Cross-Registration:

1. Seek advisement on the courses you wish to take. Consider whether or not they meet degree requirements.

2. Obtain the signature of your academic advisor/chair/Dean:

         a. Graduate students at ALS: Registrar's Office

         b. Graduate students at UA: Advisor/Chair/Dean

         c. Undergraduate students at UA (Seniors ONLY): Advisement Services

3. Obtain the signature of the Registrar at the home institution.

4. Obtain the signature of the Registrar at the host institution.

5. Complete any required application forms for the host institution.

6. Return the completed Agreement to the home institution immediately upon registering with the host institution. Failure to return the Agreement will result in not being registered for the intended cross-registered course(s).
