Full-time Brandeis students enjoy cross-registration privileges with Babson, Bentley, and Wellesley Colleges, as well as with the Olin College of Engineering, and with the undergraduate schools of arts and sciences at Boston College, Boston University, and Tufts University. Under this program students may earn credit toward the Brandeis degree without payment of additional tuition through satisfactory completion of courses taken on these neighboring campuses. Brandeis is supportive of students' supplementing their academic experience by cross-registering at these schools. While Brandeis will provide academic advising, it cannot provide transportation to these campuses.
A cross-registration course may be the fourth or fifth course in a student's program—a student must be enrolled in a minimum of twelve credit-hours in Brandeis courses to be eligible to cross-register. Cross-registration courses do not count toward the courses required for academic residency. Cross-registration courses and grades appear on Brandeis transcripts. Grades earned in cross-registered courses are not used in the calculation of the GPA. Additional information may be obtained from the Office of the University Registrar.
Due to differences in academic calendars among the colleges in the consortium, it is not advisable for graduating seniors to enroll in a cross-registered course in their final semester.
A student at Brandeis who wishes to enroll in a graduate course at one of the host institutions should obtain a registration permit from the Office of the University Registrar and should present this permit to the office of the registrar of the host institution. The student should consult with the instructor in the particular course and should expect to satisfy the prerequisites and requirements normally required for admission to the course, including adherence to the academic calendar of that course.
