Cross Registration Procedures
Students should read this information carefully before completing a cross registration form. Failure to do so may result in completion of coursework which is not applicable to degree requirements and/or for which the student may incur an additional tuition liability for the cross registered course work.
The cross registration program enables full-time, matriculating students to take a course(s) at other participating area colleges/universities. Cross registrations are handled as if they were Canisius courses, i.e., all credits and grades are included in the calculation of the grade point average. There is no additional tuition charged to a student by the participating college/university if the student's total course load (Canisius courses plus the cross registered course) does not exceed 18 credit hours.
• The Canisius student must be a matriculating student who is carrying a full-time course load (12 credit hours) at Canisius during the semester in which he/she cross registers.
• One course per semester may be taken as a cross registration.
• Only undergraduate courses may be taken via the cross registration program. Independent Studies are not allowed.
• The course for which a student cross registers cannot be offered at Canisius during the same semester. Fall and Spring semesters are the only times when a student may cross register.
