Outgoing Cross-Registration Students

Cross registration enables Georgia State students to take courses at any of the 20 member institutions of the Atlanta Regional Consortium for Higher Education and receive credit, while paying tuition costs to the home institution. The intent of the program is to allow qualified students to take course work in their area of study that is not available on their own campuses. Graduate students must have the approval of the faculty advisor or department chair from their home institution and must be enrolled at Georgia State during the term of cross registration.
