What Is Cross Registration And How Can It Benefit You? -Los Altos SAT Prep Services

Once you enter college, registration can be a complicated process. You will need to take required general education classes, prerequisites, and higher level courses in your field of study. You may want to meet with your advisor to make sure you are on track to complete your studies in the expected amount of time. You may also want to talk with your advisor about cross registration.

Defining Cross Registration

Cross registration allows you to register for courses at other nearby institutions. If another college offers a course that interests you, but it is not offered by your institution, you may be able to take the course at the other college. Many colleges partner with other colleges to offer cross registration. For example, a student at Wellesley could attend courses at MIT, Brandeis, or Babson College. They could even attend a semester at other institutions across the country that partner with Wellesley.

Work With An Advisor

Before you cross register, talk to you advisor to make sure that the course you are cross registering for will meet requirements either for your generals or your major. If it doesn’t, then make sure the credits transfer as electives. You will also want to find out what costs are involved. Many programs allow cross registration without having to pay the alternative institution, but some programs may require fees.


Cross registration will benefit you when your university doesn’t offer courses in a particular subject that interests you. There may also be a professor that is a well known expert in a particular field that you would prefer to study under. Cross registration allows you to pursue interests beyond what your own institution has available.

Using all of your Opportunities

The availability of cross registration is something you may want to take into account when choosing a college or university. Cross registration can expand your opportunities and introduce you to new networks in your field. When you begin registering for your courses, work with your advisor to make sure you are taking full advantage of all the opportunities available.
