Cross Registration

SUNY’s Cross Registration policy is primarily intended to resolve scheduling conflicts for required courses that would delay timely program completion.  By providing access to required courses at other SUNY campuses, cross registration allows students to complete requirements in situations where a course or courses are unavailable at their home campus.

Students attending a SUNY community college or four-year college may take courses at other SUNY institutions without incurring additional tuition charges, but may be responsible for course-related fees. A Home institution is the SUNY institution where the student is enrolled in a degree or certificate program.  A Host institution is the SUNY institution that provides instruction to a student who is pursuing a degree or certification at a different SUNY Home campus.


Cross-registered courses must satisfy the requirements of the degree or certificate they are seeking from their home school.  Both the home and host school must approve the cross registration request.  Approvals should be in place prior to the start of the academic term.   If a student is cross registering at SUNY Ulster, a Certificate of Residence must be provided to the college.    The non resident fee is only removed when the Certificate of Residence is provided and this fee is not covered by the home school; if the Certificate is not supplied to SUNY Ulster the student will be responsible to pay this fee.

In addition, to be eligible for cross registration, students must be in good academic standing at the home school and requests are subject to course availability and meeting course prerequisites.  

Students should submit cross registration requests by completing the required information at
