Cross-Registration at Manhattanville College

Manhattanville College and Purchase College allow a limited number of matriculated students from each institution to cross-register at the other institution, typically for coursework not offered on their home campus. There is no additional tuition charged for cross-registered courses, but additional fees may be assessed for certification courses (excluding teaching certification).

Students require the permission of both institutions to cross-register. Purchase students who are interested in cross-registering at Manhattanville:

  1. should consult with an advisor at both Purchase and Manhattanville before registration; and
  2. must obtain the signatures of their advisor and the registrar on the Cross-Registration Form.

Depending on its needs, Manhattanville College may completely restrict its registration in some areas. Manhattanville courses that are generally not available to Purchase students through cross-registration are:

  • Studio art
  • Management and economics
  • Computer science
  • Independent study
  • Business
  • Education
  • Certification courses
  • Any course that is offered at Purchase 

Cross-Registration through Another SUNY College

The intent of a student taking cross-registered course(s) is to complement the student’s overall academic program when an equivalent course is not available at Purchase College or the enrollment capacity has been reached in all Purchase College offerings. Not all SUNY schools participate in the SUNY Cross-Registration.

  • available for fall and spring semesters only
  • student must be matriculated in a degree program
  • student must be in good academic standing
  • student must be registered for at least 6 credits at Purchase for the semester
  • student must have no holds that prevent registration

The request may be denied if the:

  • the course is available at purchase college
  • the course is not degree applicable
  • the course can be completed at a later time without a delay to graduation
  • the course puts you over the credit maximum for the term
  • registration deadline has passed
First Steps

You are responsible for fully understanding and abiding by all policies, procedures, regulations, and deadlines set by Purchase college as well as your home campus.

Following your home campus’ approval, registration will be provided on a space-available basis, after Purchase college students have had an opportunity to enroll. If space is available, the Registrar’s Office will process your registration. Courses for which you have registered for prior to receiving official approval will not be covered. This may result in additional tuition charges/fees.

The request may be denied if space in the course is unavailable and/or the registration deadline has passed prior to home institution approval.
