Full-time Brandeis students enjoy cross-registration privileges with Babson College, Bentley University and Wellesley College, as well as with Olin College of Engineering, and 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. Although 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 semester of study. A student must be enrolled in a minimum of 12 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.
