Please remember that you are responsible for knowing the procedures and deadlines outlined here. Be sure to read carefully so that you have all the information you need.

Eligibility

To be eligible to participate in the Mills cross-registration program you must be:

A sophomore, junior or senior, registered in at least three Mills credits, with a minimum cumulative GPA of 2.00; or

A graduate student, enrolled at least part time, with department approval. Note that graduate students will not receive credit for lower-division undergraduate courses.

Part-time undergraduate students carrying at least one Mills credit are eligible for cross-registration. The student will be charged for the cross-registration course at the current per-credit tuition rate.

Seniors and graduate students in their last term of attendance may cross-register but should note that the time to process the cross-registration transcript will delay the posting of the Mills degree and release of the diploma.

Regulations

All Students

Do not register directly through the host school.  By registering directly through the host school, you are not participating in the cross-registration program and are responsible for any charges, including tuition and fees.

Students at the host institution have priority registration for their home institution's courses.  Courses available for cross-registration are dependent upon space available.  Consult the instructor on the first day of instruction whether there is space available in the class.

Eligible students may cross-register for up to one course per semester, provided the course is not offered during the same semester at Mills College.

Students must meet all prerequisites and criteria for cross-registration.

Students may not enroll in independent study, tutorial or individual instruction courses.

Cross-registration is not available during the summer or January (Intersession) terms.

Students who cross-register at schools during a winter quarter will see the course on their Mills spring term schedule. Students may not cross-register at a quarter system school for both the winter and spring quarters.

Students will receive a temporary library card to access necessary course materials.

Undergraduate Students

No more than four semester course credits of cross-registered courses may apply toward your undergraduate degree.

Cross-registration courses do not count toward the undergraduate residency requirement of 12 semester course credits at Mills.

Graduate Students

No more than 1.5 semester course credits of cross-registered courses may apply toward your graduate degree.

Graduate students will not receive credit for lower-division undergraduate work.

Grades and Transcripts

Credit is automatically transferred by the host school to Mills for evaluation and transcription. Transcripts are received several weeks after the end of the term, and evaluated immediately upon receipt. Check your myMills account to see your updated transcript.

The host school is not required to keep a record of your work or to provide transcripts.

Receiving credit depends upon your meeting the academic requirements and deadlines of both Mills and the host school.

Credit through cross-registration is not considered transfer credit. However, unlike credit earned at Mills, cross-registration credit does not count toward the 12-credit residency requirement. Grades for cross-registration courses are calculated into your Mills GPA.

Enrollment Deadlines

Cross-registration calendar information is available in the Office of the Registrar at the host school.

You are responsible for meeting the registration deadlines at the host school, and for any late fees if you miss the deadline. A copy of the permit must be turned into Mills within one week after the course begins.

If you drop your cross-registration course you must adhere to the deadlines of the host school and Mills.

Cost

For full-time Mills students there is no additional tuition cost for cross-registration.

Part-time students must pay for a cross-registered course according to the Mills College part-time fee schedulePart-time students must pay for their cross-registration class by the second week of classes.

Students are responsible for any laboratory or special fees. Students are also responsible for purchasing a parking pass, if necessary, through the Public Safety office.

Library use is free, except at UC Berkeley, with identification (your signed permit form).

Cross-Registration Instructions

Consult the catalog and schedule of classes available at the institution you are interested in attending.

Pick up a Cross-Registration Permit and guidelines at the M Center or download the form.

Complete the form, securing the necessary signatures in the order requested.

If the cross-registered class creates a course overload, you must petition the Academic Standing Committee to get approval of your overload before your cross-registration will be approved.

Present your completed permit to your host school registrar no later than the end of the first week of classes at the host school.

Return a copy of the permit to the M Center within one week after the course begins.

Keep a copy for identification purposes.

If you drop the course, you must inform both schools to avoid a possible "UW" or "F" grade.

Part-time students must pay for their cross-registered class by the second week of classes.

To drop a cross-registration course you must follow the regular procedure to drop a course. You must also follow the drop procedure at the host institution, adhering to both schools' deadlines. If you drop the course, you must inform both schools to avoid a possible "UW" or "F" grade.
