Cross Registration

Cross-Registration Guidelines

Cross registration is a cooperative agreement between colleges that permits full-time, degree-seeking students to enroll in coursework at other colleges participating in a formal arrangement.

  • The “home” college is the institution where you are currently pursuing a degree. The “host” college is the partnering institution where you can enroll in limited coursework.
  • The intent of cross-registration is to assist students in meeting their academic goals and to graduate on time. Full-time students may take additional classes, not otherwise offered or available at their home institution, tuition-free at a host college under the terms and conditions of the cross-registration agreement.
    • Cross-registration is available during the fall and spring semesters only. Summer, winter or other abbreviated semesters are not covered by these agreements.
    • Students who plan to cross register must be enrolled full-time in at least 12 credit hours at their home institution and pay tuition and fees for those classes.
    • Cross-registration is subject to seat availability at the host institution. Registration, enrollment, add/drop, and course withdrawal dates and procedures of the host institution must be followed. We recommend you research cross-registration procedures for “visiting students” at the host institution where you plan to enroll.
    • No extra tuition is assessed, but students are responsible to pay the host institution for any fees that may be required for a cross-registered course, such as lab or service fees.
  • Cross registration agreement forms for students pursuing a JCC degree can be obtained from the Jamestown Campus registrar's office and Cattaraugus County campus counseling center.

Explore the opportunities under two cross-registration agreements available to full-time JCC students.

1. State University of New York (SUNY) Cross Registration Agreement. JCC and all other SUNY Colleges and Universities participate in this agreement, except for SUNY’s statutory colleges at Cornell and Alfred Universities.

  • You may cross-register for up to 6 credit hours/semester at SUNY host institutions in courses that are eligible for JCC transfer credit toward your JCC degree.
  • Request the JCC SUNY Cross Registration Form from the registrar’s office on the Jamestown campus or the Cattaraugus County Campus counseling center.
  • Students must have signature approval to cross register from their faculty adviser or a college counselor. Confirmation of your full-time status is signed by the JCC registrar’s office.
  • Credit for courses you pass with a C or higher grade at the host institution are recorded as transfer credit on your JCC transcript. Grades are not counted in your JCC grade point average. Transfer credit for cross-registered courses for which you earn less than a C grade will not be recorded on your JCC transcript and will not count toward your JCC degree.

2. Western New York Consortium Agreement. This agreement allows full-time JCC students to enroll in a course at one of the participating member private (non-SUNY) institutions. See Cross Registration Calendar for participating colleges, deadlines and restrictions.

  • You may cross-register for up to 3 credit hours at host institutions in courses that are eligible for JCC transfer credit toward your JCC degree.
  • Request the Western New York Consortium  from the registrar’s office on the Jamestown campus or the Cattaraugus County Campus counseling center.
  • It is strongly recommended that you discuss your plan to cross register with your faculty adviser or a college counselor. Confirmation of your full-time status is signed by the JCC registrar’s office.
  • Credit for courses you pass with a C or higher grade at the host institution are recorded as transfer credit on your JCC transcript. Grades are not counted in your JCC grade point average. Transfer credit for cross-registered courses for which you earn less than a C grade will not be recorded on your JCC transcript and will not count toward your JCC degree.

Are you pursuing a degree at another SUNY college or university, or a participating college in the Western New York Consortium? Contact the registrar’s office at your home institution for instructions for permission to enroll at JCC under one of these agreements.
