Cross-Registration with Other Universities

Formal cooperative arrangements for cross-registration have been made between the College of Arts & Sciences and nearby institutions. During the fall and spring semesters, matriculated students may not enroll concurrently in any course or institution other than those that are a part of a consortium agreement.

A consortium agreement among the College of Arts & Sciences of Boston University, Boston College, Brandeis University, Hebrew College, and Tufts University permits College of Arts & Sciences students to cross-register for one course per semester at any of the other institutions after completing their freshman year.

Credit for any course carried in another college or university under any cooperative arrangement with Boston University requires specific approval before students can register for the course. Except with such approval, registered CAS students are not granted credit for courses taken outside the University. All courses must be taken for a letter grade.

Detailed information concerning cross-registration at other universities, and an application, are available at the Office of the University Registrar.
