Cross-Registration with Other Colleges

Sage maintains relationships with other institutions that allow full-time matriculated undergraduate students to complete coursework through local consortia and study abroad consortia during the academic year. Students pay their regular Sage tuition and fees and complete coursework as long as they are in good academic standing at the College and have completed all requirements and necessary forms. 

For coursework at local institutions (Capital Region Consortium, formerly known as, Hudson Mohawk Association of Colleges & Universities), full-time undergraduate students may take one or two courses per term (fall or spring). The requested course(s) should not be currently available at Sage. A minimum of one-half of the student's term credits must be on their home campus. Note: some institutions place additional restrictions on cross-college registrations.

Coursework completed through a consortium partner via cross-registration (local college or study abroad) appear on the official transcript as Sage credits (course information and course grade). The consortium course grade is included in GPA calculation. Students should consult with their faculty advisor (major) and the Registrar’s Office early in the advising process to ascertain policies and procedures that must be followed for a particular institution.
