Registration at consortium colleges

It is possible to register for courses, at no additional tuition charge, at other colleges and universities in the Capital Region. Here are some pointers to keep in mind if you think you might be interested in cross-registering at one of the participating colleges:

  • Courses taken at one of the consortium colleges will appear on your student record in the same manner as courses taken at Rensselaer, and thus carry term and cumulative hours, and grade points.
  • Tuition cost for courses taken at one of these colleges is covered by the tuition charge at Rensselaer and is subject to the same regulations that apply for courses taken at Rensselaer. However, you are responsible for any additional charges such as lab fees, activity fees, and so on.
  • You must be a full-time student.
  • You may take no more than half of your academic credits at a consortium college in any semester.
  • You cannot cross register for courses offered at Rensselaer.
  • If you are a graduate student, your cross-registration course should appear on an approved Plan of Study prior to your enrolling in a course taught at a consortium college. It is important to remember that the Office of Graduate Education reserves the right not to accept the course toward a degree program if it was not listed on an approved Plan of Study.

The form required to cross register at consortium colleges can be found at CROSS REGISTRATION FORM

You can obtain additional information on cross-registration at consortium colleges from the Registrar's Office, located on the 2000 level of Academy Hall, or via the Student Information System (SIS).
