What is Cross Registration

In 1972 the five founding private institutions of the Hartford Consortium for Higher Education (HCHE), opened their doors to allow students from each member institution to cross register.

Today, full-time undergraduates, graduate students and employees can study at any one of the eleven (11) member institutions of HCHE.

There are more than 40,000 full and part-time students enrolled in over 4,000 courses at HCHE member institutions!

How it Works

Interested students can find a list of available courses on HCHE member websites

Cross registration allows students to:

  • Register for a course they need to meet graduation requirements
  • Enroll in a course not offered at their college
  • Ability to explore another member institution’s campus

*NOTE: Not all member institutions permit employees to use the tuition remission program that is a part of cross registration
