Cross-Registration FAQ

How do I cross register with other ARCHE member institutions?

With permission of the dean of the college, full-time students in good standing may enroll in courses offered by any member institution of the Atlanta Regional Council for Higher Education (ARCHE), provided that the course is not offered at Emory.

Emory students who wish to enroll for courses at an ARCHE member institution must complete a Cross Registration application form. NOTE: Cross Registration is not offered during the Summer Semester at Emory University.

Application forms can also be obtained from the Office of the Registrar or from the Emory College of Arts & Sciences Office.

Students receive credit ONLY.

Grades for these courses are not a part of the academic record at Emory.

What is required to cross register at another school?

  1. A completed application (submitted by the deadline date) with your advisors signature and Registrar’s approval.
  2. A copy of your immunization (you are responsible for sending to visiting school).
  3. You must be a full time degree seeking student in good academic standing.
  4. The course you want to take is not offered at Emory.
  5. You understand enrollment through the cross registration program is not guaranteed.

Is there an extra tuition cost to cross register?

Since you are a full time student at Emory, there is no additional charge for tuition to cross register. 

How many classes may I cross register for?

You may take up to 2 classes per semester and a total of 18 hours as a cross registration student.

As a cross registration student, am I sure to get into the class I want to take at the host school?

No – enrollment through the ARCHE program does not guaranteed enrollment. Enrollment is based upon “space available in the course”. If there are open seats in the class, after the host’s school’s regular enrollment, then students that wish to cross register may be enrolled.

Schools also have the right to limit courses that are offered through cross registration.
