Cross Registration with other institutions using the (PCHE form) Pittsburgh Council on Higher Education
If you are considering cross registering for a course at another institution, using the PCHE (Pittsburgh Council on Higher Education) system, you must complete the updated PCHE Cross Registration Form.
The deadline for submitting a PCHE form to the SHRS Student Affairs office, is 2 weeks prior to the beginning of the spring or fall term. (due to holiday - Spring term forms must be submitted prior to Holiday break)
- Before submitting this form, please review the course with your advisor for approval. Advisor Signature will be required.
- Enrollment is limited to one class per semester/term. (fall and spring only - Cross registration does not apply to summer semesters/terms)
- Any full-time student enrolled at a Pittsburgh Council on Higher Education (PCHE) school may cross register. Approved schools are listed on the form.
- The form must be typed and printed before submitting.
- You must be enrolled as a full-time student at Pitt before your PCHE course is processed (Fulltime is Undergrad 12-18 credits, Graduate 9-15 credits) You must maintain your fulltime status after PCHE is approved.
- If you do not exceed the maximum credits of full-time status, you will not be charged any additional tuition.
- Applying to cross-register does not guarantee enrollment in the requested course at the host institution. If successful, you will be notified of your enrollment by the host institution.
- It is HIGHLY recommended that students do not cross register in their term of graduation, as end of term does not always match up with Pitt and could hold up your graduation.
- Pitt students applying to cross-register at other PCHE institutions should refer to the host institution's latest mandates and guidelines for attending in-person classes as related to the COVID-19 pandemic before applying to cross-register.
Completed forms must be submitted to home dean (Student Affairs Office 4044 Forbes Tower, or emailed to the SHRS Registrar, Kellie Beach at Kbeach@pitt.edu ) for processing. Upon approval it will be submitted to the home registrar (main Pitt Registrar at Thackeray), and host registrar.
