Important Information to Remember
- Student record holds at Georgia Tech or the host institution will delay or prevent completion of the cross-registration process. Applications will be denied if holds have not been removed by the last day of Phase I registration for the semester/term.
- Cross-registration participants are not allowed to pre-register at the host school. Course availability is granted on a space available basis. Applicants should have an alternative course of action in the event that the cross-registration application is denied. Confirmation of acceptance and registration, or denial, will be emailed to the applicant.
- Georgia Tech students who cross-register with other ARCHE institutions will have a placeholder course added to their Georgia Tech schedules designating their enrollment. The placeholder course will carry an Audit grade mode and will be registered for tuition and, fee assessment, and other departmental use.
- Tuition and mandatory student fees are paid directly to Georgia Tech. Additional course /lab fees, parking, and voluntary expenses are paid to the host institution.
- Participants must abide by the drop/add and withdrawal deadlines assigned by both Georgia Tech and the host institution.
- Cross-registration course work will be handled as transfer credit and will not impact the Georgia Tech grade point average (GPA).
- Course work completed through cross-registration will be considered resident credit for the purpose of satisfying the 36 hour residency rule.
- Credit for course work completed through cross-registration will be evaluated based on Georgia Techâ€™s transfer equivalency table and published standard transfer policies. Please review Georgia Tech's equivalency table for pre-approved classes. https://oscar.gatech.edu/pls/bprod/wwsktrna.P_find_location
- If courses are not pre-approved, it is the student's responsibility to request an evaluation from the appropriate department. Documentation for evaluation of cross-registered course work may be submitted through the Transfer Credit website. http://registrar.gatech.edu/students/transfercredit.php
- Graduate level courses are typically not listed in Georgia Tech's equivalency table. Information regarding graduate students seeking transfer credit can be found in the Georgia Tech Catalog.
- For further assistance with transfer credit, please contact the Georgia Tech Transfer Credit department.

Frequently Asked Questions
1. There are only two spaces available for class requests and alternates on the application, but I would like to request more than one section of a class or more than two different types of classes. How do I make that request on the application?
2. I’m requesting a class I have to have to graduate that same semester—how can I ensure I’ll be registered?
3. What is the difference between ARCHE cross-registration and being a transient student?
A transient student goes through the formal admission process through the visiting school. All tuition/mandatory fees are paid directly to the visiting school, and the transfer credit that is completed will be transferred as non-resident transfer credit. For undergraduate student, non-resident transfer credit is subject to the 36-hour rule (http://www.catalog.gatech.edu/rules/13b.php).
