Cross-Registration

Starting with the second (sophomore) year, Georgetown University in Qatar (GU-Q) students may enroll in classes at other Education City schools pending space available in the class, and the approval of an academic advisor and the Associate Registrar for GU-Q. Students may not take more than one consortium class in a semester and may not take more than four such courses over the period of their degree.

GU-Q students may not cross-register if:

  • they are in the first year of studies;
  • they have taken the same or a similar class previously;
  • they are requesting a class which is the same as/similar to one offered at Georgetown;
  • they are requesting a class that is not deemed equivalent to a Georgetown three-credit class.

 

Applying for a Cross-registration class

  • Complete the Education City Cross-registration form. This is the only form that will be accepted, and must be completed online and printed off for appropriate signatures. Old/handwritten forms will not be accepted. In addition, you must submit a copy of your passport with the registration request form. Forms will not be accepted if they are incomplete in any way.
  • Registration at the university in which you plan to enroll is on a first-come, first-served basis. Once your form has been processed by the Associate Registrar for GU-Q, you will then need to take the form to the host university to be registered for the course.
  • The host university will advise you if your application is successful.
  • Once your cross-registration course enrollment is confirmed by the host university, you must submit the course information to the Associate Registrar for GU-Q to have the courses added to your academic record.

Reminder: By enrolling at another university in Education City, you are agreeing to follow their university rules and policies, which includes attending classes even if GU-Q is closed. Not all universities follow the same academic calendar and you must adhere to the requirements of the host university.
