Cross Registration

The WNY Consortium and SUNY Cross Registration are agreements with colleges and universities in Western New York and SUNY to facilitate the registration of students in other participating institutions. It is a program applicable to matriculated undergraduate students who are full-time at their "home" institution. UB Students may cross register at participating institutions only when an equivalent course is not available at UB, the enrollment capacity has been reached in all UB offerings, or the student has reached the limit for repeated attempts of the course. Cross registration is available for fall and spring semesters only (not winter and summer sessions).

Cross Registration Procedures for UB Students Seeking to Cross Register Elsewhere

If you are a full-time undergraduate UB student (registered for at least 12 credit hours) and wish to enroll in a course at another SUNY or WNY Consortium college or university, complete the required form. You must then meet with an academic advisor in your academic department, who will determine whether an equivalent course is available at UB. If an equivalent course is available at UB, you cannot cross register for that course elsewhere. Once advisor approval is received, you must take the form to the Student Response Center at 232 Capen. A Student Response Center representative will verify if your are registered as a full-time, matriculated undergraduate student and will review your record for holds preventing registration.

There are a few SUNY institutions who have agreed to permit some graduate-level cross-registration. These include the University at Buffalo, State University College at Buffalo, and State University College at Fredonia. If you are a full-time graduate student at UB (registered for at least 9 credit hours or full-time certified by the Graduate School), you should complete the required form and bring it to the Student Response Center in 232 Capen. A Student Response Center representative will verify your registration and will review your record for holds preventing registration. No additional UB approval is required.

Which form should you use?

If you are seeking to cross register at another SUNY institution, you must complete the SUNY Cross Registration Form (PDF) and the Cross Registration Academic Advisor Review form (PDF).

If you are seeking to cross register at a WNY Consortium institution, you must complete the WNY Consortium Form (PDF) and the Cross Registration Academic Advisor Review Form (PDF).

Once approved by UB, you must then visit the other institution on the specific day(s) allotted for cross-registering students (See the Cross Registration Calendar or contact the Office of the Registrar at the host institution). When you report to the other institution on the appointed day, they will use the form to create a record for you. If there is space remaining in the course you desire, you will be able to register in the course. You must then return the form to the Office of the Registrar, 232 Capen Hall; ubreg@buffalo.edu or by fax at 716-645-7762.

You must only register for course(s) for which you received UB approval. Registration for other courses may result in you being charged tuition and fees.

At the end of the semester, the grade you earn will be forwarded to UB and added to your transcript as transfer credit.

Non-UB students must report to their home institution’s Registrar’s Office for details and instructions.
