How To Register

Students are permitted to cross-register at one of the Pittsburgh Council of Higher Education institutions for courses not offered by Robert Morris University. Only in unusual circumstances will permission be granted to enroll in a required course, and such permission is granted only by the department head. Interested students:
  1. Must complete the PCHE Cross-Registration form during the registration period of the host institution.

  2. Must be a full-time student carrying 12 semester hours or more (including the cross-registered course).

  3. Will be permitted to cross-register for only one course per semester.

  4. May not cross-register for courses during the summer session.
Undergraduate Cross-Registration Procedure

Click here for instructions on how to complete the form using Adobe Acrobat. Students interested in Cross-Registration should be referred to the Office of the Registrar.

Complete the form linked above electronically. You must provide your current mailing address and phone number. This is the host institution's only way of contacting you. If you are registering for a course at the University of Pittsburgh, include both the course number and the CRN number listed in their catalog. You will then print the completed form in order to obtain advisor approval.

Submit the approved form to the Office of the University Registrar before host institution's add/drop deadline.
The host institution will inform you by mail if you are accepted into the course or if you need to complete additional steps to register.
The course will be added to your RMU schedule once approval is received.

If you choose to audit or take a course pass/fail, then you must indicate that on the request form prior to submission to the Registrar's Office. Contact the host institution if any additional paperwork is required. Students who want to Audit a course must follow the host school’s policy. Students are responsible for meeting the requirements and deadlines to audit a course.  If you choose to drop a PCHE course, you must notify the Office of the University Registrar at RMU prior to both the RMU and the host institution's drop deadline. 

If approved, the student will be enrolled by RMU's Registrar’s Office and will appear on the class and grade rosters for the course. A copy of the form will be mailed to the student marked “Approved”. A copy of the form will also be mailed to the student’s home registrar.  Please note that all requests are sent via traditional mail through University mail systems. Forms are generally received by the Host School 5 to 7 days after being sent. From there, the Host School will process and notify students of their status according to their schedules. Students are advised to provide a valid local address on their forms and be sure that all information is correct, and to check their University e-mail account regularly if they are waiting to hear about their cross-registration status.

If denied, the requested course is full, the form will be marked “Not Available” and copies will be mailed to the student and the home registrar. Incoming cross-registering students cannot be added to a course’s waitlist. Students are not permitted to attend classes for which they are not formally enrolled.

We request that you do not contact the school where you would like to cross register for status updates. If a host school contacts us with information that a student has repeatedly contacted their university, then Robert Morris University reserves the right to deny the student's request.
