Interinstitutional Registration

Interinstitutional Registration Agreement

Under the interinstitutional registration agreement, any graduate, professional or undergraduate student enrolled as a degree seeking student at any of the following universities may participate in registration via the interinstitutional registration process:

The student may take a course at a participating university if the student's academic advisor and/or dean can certify that the course is appropriate for the student's degree program and that the course is not available during the same academic year at the home institution. Registration deadlines of the home institution should be observed. Students may not audit courses under the interinstitutional registration agreement.

Special Notice:  All foreign national students (undergraduate, graduate and professional) must present evidence of immigration status to the Duke Visa Services Office before the first day of classes. Failure to comply will result in the inability to enroll for classes. Visa Services will block enrollment for any students who fail to comply with this policy. The Visa Services Office location can be found at:  http://visaservices.duke.edu/directions.html.  If you have any questions or require additional information, please call 919-681-8472.

Maximum Number of Courses Allowed:

  • Graduate and Professional School Students: Two courses per term (Fall and Spring Semesters), provided that the student is also registered for the balance of his/her normal load at the home institution.
  • Undergraduate Students: One course per term (Fall and Spring Semesters), provided that the student is also registered for the balance of his/her normal load at the home institution.
  • All Students: One course per summer, provided that the student is concurrently registered for one course with an equivalent credit value at the home institution.

Important: Please note that the academic calendars and procedures at the six institutions vary. It is very important that students plan carefully and apply early to minimize problems in the registration process. The interinstitutional registration agreement requires students to apply and register for courses only through their home institution.
