Tri-College Cross-Registration Policy
All students may opt to take courses on another campus provided that
- The class enrollment limit specified by the other college is not exceeded, and
- The course is not offered on the home campus. (Exceptions to this policy will be made by the Academic Dean of the home campus.)
Courses in one’s major and in education taken on another campus must meet the specifications of the major department and the Teacher Education Program on the home campus.
- Each major department will specify for its majors which major courses from the other institutions will be acceptable in fulfillment of its graduation requirement. Departments may make this specification in terms of definite courses or in terms of number of credit hours, or both.
- Each Teacher Education Program will specify for its own members which education courses from the other institution will be acceptable in fulfillment of its requirements.
Registration priorities differ between required courses and elective courses.
- For required courses a student has priority in courses
- Offered on the home campus.
- Offered by a home campus instructor but on another campus.
- Offered on another campus by arrangement with the colleges.
- For elective courses a student has secondary consideration to students for whom the course is a required course.
- Required by another institution but not offered on the home campus by arrangement of the colleges.
- Taught by an instructor from another campus.
