SUNY Cross-Registration Agreement

Students attending a SUNY four-year institution or community college may be permitted to take courses at other SUNY four-year institutions or community colleges without incurring additional tuition charges.


Students must be a matriculated undergraduate, and attending full or part-time at their home institution. Students are limited to six credits of undergraduate cross-registered coursework per semester and the cross-registered courses must be applicable toward degree or certificate requirements. Students cross-registering at a community college are required to provide a certificate of residence to the institution. Students registering through a SUNY Cross-Registration agreement are not charged tuition at the host institution, but may be liable for course-related fees.

Finger Lakes Community College Students

Students interested in cross-registering at another SUNY institution must meet with their academic advisor and select a course that can be used toward degree or certificate completion. Students must complete the online SUNY Cross-Registration Request (use your FLCC username and password), and wait for emails from the college regarding approvals to register. FLCC students cross-registering for courses at other colleges must stay within overload and probation credit hour limits. Credits completed through a Cross-Registration agreement with a C- or above will be posted as transfer credit to students' academic records.

Students Visiting Finger Lakes Community College

Students from SUNY four-year institutions and other community colleges may cross-register for courses at Finger Lakes Community College on a space-available basis beginning 15 days prior to the start of the term. Cross-Registration requests must be received by the end of the add period for the semester (typically the second Friday of the semester); requests received after this date will not be honored. Students must contact their home institution for pertinent guidelines and to obtain login instructions to submit a SUNY Cross-Registration request. Visiting students are responsible for all course-related fees, and must submit a valid certificate of residence at the time of registration. A copy of your FLCC grades will automatically be sent to your home institution at the close of the semester.
