UMD Cross Registration Steps

  1. Complete the Inter-Institutional Cross Registration (IICR) form
  2. Discuss your academic plan with your adviser to obtain authorization.
  3. Return form to One Stop Student Services, 23 Solon Campus Center. UMD will validate UMD enrollment of at least 12 credits and fax the form to the host institution.
  4. You will be notified by University email if registration is successful or if there are any concerns.
  5. Your UMD bill (online) will reflect any charges. You may be assessed course fees by CSS or UWS depending upon the class of enrollment.  All fees must be paid to receive final grades for cross registration courses.
  6. UMD will enroll you in "IICR" subject classes to reflect your CSS or UWS registration. You will see IICR course(s) listed on your class schedule.
  7. The course taken at CSS or UWS will be on your UMD transcript and count toward your University of Minnesota GPA with a notation that the course was taken at CSS or UWS.
  8. After grades are posted notify your college to have these credits applied to UMD degree requirements (APAS).


How do I know if the Cross Registration process is complete?

  • The Cross Registration process is complete when you are enrolled in an "IICR" class at UMD.
  • If classes are available, the entire process is usually complete before the 2nd week of the term.
  • Check your class schedule to be sure it includes the "IICR" class and the correct number of credits.
  • Once you have been registered at the host institution, you will need to initiate your account and email at the host institution. Please check with the host institution to receive instructions.

How do I drop a Cross Registration course?

  • Do not drop your IICR classes online.
  • Your IICR course enrollment is subject to the Cancel/Add Refund Deadlines of your host institution.
  • Contact One Stop Student Services in order to drop your cross registration courses(s). We will work with the host institution to update your records.
  • Failure to follow the correct drop procedure for courses enrolled through IICR could result in receiving an incomplete (I) or a failing grade (F). There may also be financial implications. Failure to follow correct procedures in a timely manner may result in having to petition/appeal your situation at both campuses.
