Non-FAS Cross Registration

 

Students taking FAS courses are subject to all the FAS regulations and deadlines unless your own school deadlines are earlier. For more information regarding FAS add, drop, withdrawal deadlines click here[HCK1] . Students who file a drop at their home school after our drop deadline will be withdrawn (rather than dropped) from the course. The option to enroll in an FAS course Pass/Fail is not open to cross registered students. The option to take designated language courses on a Sat/Uns basis is also not available to cross registered students. [HCK2]

Students cross registered in FAS courses that have a final exam scheduled by the Registrar’s Office must take the exam on the date and time of the scheduled exam or risk receiving a failing grade of ABS. For the detailed exams schedule, please visit the Exams Schedule Page.
