Fall 2021 Guidance/COVID-19 Information

SUNY Cross Registration

Cross-Registration for SUNY Students

The State University of New York established SUNY-wide cross-registration in order to facilitate the transfer of courses between institutions and to allow for the use of a financial aid consortium agreement where it is permitted.

When participating in the cross-registration process, you are strongly encouraged to give yourself adequate time, since several levels of approval are required at the home and host schools. You are responsible for completing each step, and you are responsible for the accuracy of your submission. 

Students Visiting SUNY Cortland (Cortland is the Host School)

Visiting SUNY students are welcome to attend SUNY Cortland under the SUNY-wide cross-registration agreement.  The agreement permits students to cross-register at Cortland when they are matriculated at another SUNY school (the home school).
