Babson Cross-Registration


Babson undergraduate students have the opportunity to cross-register to Olin College of Engineering in Needham, Wellesley College in Wellesley, Brandeis University in Waltham, Regis College in Weston, and Pine Manor College in Chestnut Hill. Information about cross-registering to non-BOW schools can be found HERE.


Babson students may cross-register during the fall and spring semesters for a maximum of one course per semester, subject to availability. All cross-registered students are subject to the rules and sanctions of the host college or university. This includes, but is not limited to, academic honesty and integrity policies, as well as add/drop and withdrawal policies.

Students must notify both the Babson Registrar’s Office AND the Registrar’s Office of the host college or university to drop or withdraw from a cross-registered course.

The final grade for a cross-registered course is posted on your Babson transcript and calculated into the grade point average.

The academic calendars for these other colleges and universities may not align with the Babson academic calendar. For example, course start and end dates as well as the spring break period may vary. Students must plan accordingly.

Students are strongly discouraged from cross-registering in their final semester. Such students should meet with their class dean before submitting a Petition for Cross Enrollment. Babson students who plan to cross-register in their final semester need to be aware of the deadlines for grades to be submitted to the Babson Registrar’s Office in order to meet Commencement requirements. The Babson Registrar’s Office must receive spring semester grades by 4:30 p.m. on the Tuesday before Commencement. If the grades are not received by this deadline, the student will be listed in the Commencement Program with the May graduates, but honors will not be designated and the student will not receive a diploma at the ceremony. The student will receive a diploma upon completion of all degree requirements, will be ranked with all graduates once all grades are received, and will be awarded honors if applicable.

Here are some important things to know when cross registering at any of the BOW schools.
