SUNY Cross-Registration Agreement

Students attending a SUNY four-year institution or community college may be permitted to take courses at other SUNY four-year institutions or community colleges without incurring additional tuition charges.


The student must be a matriculated undergraduate and attending full-time at the home institution. The agreement limits the student to six credits of undergraduate cross-registered coursework per fall or spring semester and the cross-registered courses must be applicable toward degree or certificate completion. Cross-registration is only valid during fall and spring semesters. If cross-registering at a community college, the student must provide a certificate of residence to the institution. Students registering through a SUNY Cross-Registration agreement are not charged tuition at the host institution, but may be liable for course-related fees.
