Cross Registration

Full-time Cleveland State University students, in good academic standing, can cross-register for a course each semester on a no-fee basis at participating local colleges and universities. This status is designed to enhance the educational programs of students by allowing them to register for courses not offered at their home school. Cross Registration forms for Cleveland State students can be downloaded here. CSU students are subject to CSU transient student rules and to the host institution’s scheduling and enrollment policies. Please consult with the prospective host institution’s University Registrar’s office for information on their policies regarding cross registration.

The following institutions participate in the cross-registration arrangement with CSU: Baldwin Wallace University, Case Western Reserve University, Cleveland Institute of Art, Cleveland Institute of Music, Cuyahoga Community College, Hiram College, John Carrol University, Lake Erie College, Lakeland Community College, Notre Dame College, and Ursuline College.

Students cross registering at CSU from another institution are encouraged to review course listings ahead of time through CampusNet. Undergraduate cross registration students may take one undergraduate course (plus accompanying lab with fees to be paid by the student, if required) each term.  Students are not permitted to cross register and take additional courses in another status at CSU.  Courses with available seats are open to cross registering students. Selected courses are not open to cross registration.  Students must be in good academic standing at their home institution.  A student may cross register in only one institution each term.  Cross registration for students visiting CSU must be completed in person at Campus 411 All-in-1 (Berkman Hall (BH) 116) and begins on the dates listed below. The Office of the University Registrar will continue cross registering students up through the end of the first week of classes.
