* The University of Cincinnati will allow GC3 Cross Registration as follows:
Cross-Registration is a program sponsored by GC3 which enables a matriculated, degree-seeking student at a GC3 member institution to take courses at another GC3 member institution. The student interested in cross-registering must be enrolled at least part-time at their "home" institution and must obtain all appropriate approvals from both the home and host institutions before registering. Students who cross-register pay the tuition at their home institution, but are responsible for course-related fees to the host institution.
Please view the Cross-Registration Policies and Procedures on the GC3 Website as well as contact the Registrar's Office at your "home" institution for more specific information.
You will first need to obtain approval to cross-register at another GC3 institution from the institution at which you are degree-seeking. Once you have obtained the appropriate approvals at your "home" institution, you will receive an approved Cross-Registration Form to take to the GC3 institution at which you want to cross-register.
You should contact the Registrar's Office at your "home" institution to obtain details on the approval process at the "home" institution. The Cross-Registration contact person at your "home" institution will be able to provide more detailed information regarding the contact person and the cross-registration procedures at the "host" institution.

Why should a NKU student consider the Financial Aid Consortium and not the GC3?
Be sure and make all consortium requests before the semester begins to avoid any disbursement risk. For details about how to participate in the Financial Aid Consortium, please contact the Office of Student Financial Assistance. They can be reached by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org, or by phone at 859-572-5143. You can also visit them in person at the Lucas Administrative Center, room 301.
Students begin the Cross Registration process at their home institution, then proceed to the host institution. Students can register for courses at other GC3 institutions during the special times available for Cross Registration. Those dates and times are available for each term or semester in each GC3 registration office. Also, Cross Registration Forms with instructions are available in each registration office. Students must have the approval of their academic advisor, and appropriate signatures from the home and host institution to complete their registration. Information on courses available at GC3 institutions is available in each member institution's registration office.
Grades and Credit
When a student participates in Cross Registration, credit earned is automatically sent to their home institution and processed. Please note however that if a student has a transcript hold against their account, the host school may not be able to send a transcript to the home school until after the hold has been removed. NKU accepts grades from Cross Registration courses. Students visiting NKU from other GC3 institutions should check with their home institution's Registrar for their policy on accepting grades from Cross Registration courses.
