We encourage students to take advantage of opportunities for cross-registration. In order to make your experience with cross-registration more enjoyable,we recommend that you take the time to familiarize yourself with the rules.

ALL PROCEDURES FOLLOW THE RULES OF THE HOST INSTITUTION. This applies to add/drop deadlines, grading policies, etc. Educate yourself about these rules. If you are not familiar with the rules, you may find yourself closed out of a class or with a failing grade because you didn’t withdraw by the appropriate deadline.

BE AWARE OF CALENDARING DIFFERENCES. Calendars are as closely coordinated as possible, but they are not fully aligned. This means that classes may begin on the other campus(es) before you have moved into your residence hall, or they may meet during your spring break, or they may end after your other classes do. Work with the faculty to see if classes can be made up or otherwise managed.

SENIORS TAKE NOTICE. If you are a second‐semester senior, make sure that the faculty on the other campus(es) know the date when your grades must be submitted to your Registrar so that you can be certified for graduation and/or honors. Most faculty will try to accommodate deadlines, but in some cases it may be impossible, and you should be aware that a late grade may delay receiving your diploma or prevent you from being eligible for certain honors.

CAMPUS DIFFERENCES. Each college has its own culture, and these cultures are reflected in registration and course selection. Be aware of these differences and what is required of you. In setting up your schedule, be sure to allow enough time to attend faculty office hours on the other campus(es) as well as travel time and group work with your fellow students.

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