Undergraduate Cross-Registration

Outgoing full-time matriculated undergraduate students may enroll in up to two courses during the fall and spring semester at a Hartford Consortium member institution. No more than four courses per academic calendar year. No tuition fee, registration fee, or technology fee is paid by the student to the Hartford Consortium host institution. All other fees are the student’s responsibility (i.e. transportation, books and special film/lab/music/technology fees, etc.). Check with host institutions Registrar’s Office to confirm course eligibility and fees. 

Incoming full-time undergraduate students from participating member institutions may enroll in up to four courses, two in the fall semester and two in the spring semester. All fees other than the tuition and registration fees are the student’s responsibilities (i.e. lab/film/music/technology fees, books, transportation, etc.).

Graduate Cross-Registration

Full-time matriculated graduate students may enroll in one course during the fall or spring semesters for a total of two courses per academic year at any of the Consortium member institutions. Graduate students must pay full tuition and all special fees to the Consortium host institution. Tuition remission is valid only for graduate employees of Consortium member institutions. Consortium cross-registration paperwork is processed for grading and reporting purposes.

Employee Cross-Registration

Full-time employees of Consortium member institutions may enroll in one course (undergraduate or master’s level courses only) during the fall, spring, summer, or winter semesters for a total of two courses per calendar year at any of the Consortium member institutions (check with host institutions Registrar’s Office to confirm policy). Employees must submit a Hartford Consortium for Higher Education Employee Remission form signed by their immediate supervisor.

All fees other than the tuition are the employee’s responsibilities (i.e. registration, lab/film/music/technology fees, books, transportation, etc.) Check with host institutions Registrar’s Office to confirm fees. Tuition abatement is determined by the degree program the student is seeking. For example, students matriculated in the MBA program only have a portion of the tuition waived.

Procedures

The Hartford Consortium for Higher Education Office will post the current course listings for its participating members. Catalogues are no longer printed. Each Consortium institution has its own guidelines that determine which courses are available.

Academic calendars differ at various Consortium institutions. It is the student’s responsibility to become familiar with the Consortium host institutions vacation periods, the last day to withdraw from a course without penalty and other pertinent calendar dates.

Student Responsibilities

Check with Consortium home and host institutions Registrar’s Office to confirm course eligibility. Each Consortium member has special requirements and or restrictions that determine course eligibility.

Confirm that course will be accepted for credit at the Consortium home institution.

Obtain a cross-registration form on the Hartford Consortium for Higher Education's website.

Complete a cross-registration form. A separate form for each course is required.

Obtain advisor’s signature on the cross-registration form from the Consortium home institution.

Obtain signature of the Registration Officer on the cross-registration form from the Consortium home institution.

Submit completed cross-registration form to the Consortium host institution where enrollment is being sought. Registration procedures and deadlines of the Consortium host institution must be followed.

Any changes to the registration form (additions, substitutions, withdrawal) must be reported to both the home and host Consortium institution. Contact information for participating Consortium members is available on the Hartford Consortium for Higher Education's website.

Special permission of the home institution is required for courses taken as pass /no pass.

Make certain a copy of the completed cross-registration form is sent to the Registrar’s Office of the Consortium home institution.

Special permission of the Consortium host institution instructor is occasionally needed. In these particular circumstances, students should obtain the instructor’s contact information from the Consortium host institution Registration Officer or the Hartford Consortium for Higher Education Office and arrange an appointment with the instructor.

Registration begins on December 1 for spring registrations and on May 1 for fall registrations. All registrations occur on normal business days and hours. In order to maintain registration equality among all University of Hartford students, the following dates are strictly enforced.

It is not recommended that seniors anticipating a spring graduation cross-register during the spring semester due to a possible delay in transferring grades between Consortium institutions.

Full credit is given for passing grades. All grades and credits are considered “in residence,” consequently a student’s G.P.A. is affected.
