Courses taught during the academic year at area colleges (e.g., R.I.T., St. John Fisher College, Colgate-Rochester Divinity, Monroe Community College, Nazareth College or Brockport) are available to our students with no extra tuition charge if those courses are not offered here during that semester or if our courses conflict irremediably with their schedules. Registration forms are only available online at the Registrar's website, http://www.rochester.edu/registrar/registration.html#rac. Please note that the dean’s approval (not the Registrar’s) is required of UR undergraduates. Courses, whether elective or required for the major, must be transferable and/or comparable to courses offered at UR. Students taking courses at area colleges should apprise themselves of the differences in credit systems and plan accordingly. Students should be aware that grades received in area college courses will not be included in the grade point average, although they will appear on the University of Rochester transcript. Transfer credit is awarded if C or higher grades are earned. Full-time students can take one course each semester; the program is not available to part-time students. (If you have special circumstances, please see an Adviser in College Center for Advising Services)
Courses taken for Army ROTC or Air Force ROTC may be credited toward the fulfillment of the requirements of the B.A. or B.S. degree for up to five academic courses (20 credit hours). Please note not all courses transfer. See an Adviser in College Center for Advising Services for more information or with questions.
