Interinstitutional Registration Program

NC State participates in an Interinstitutional Registration program with the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, the University of North Carolina at Greensboro, the University of North Carolina at Charlotte, North Carolina Central University, and Duke University. The program provides the opportunity for students to enroll at another institution for a course or courses not offered on their home campus. Other activities include a cooperative library arrangement, joint student activities, and faculty cooperation and interchange.

Even though taking a course on another campus, the student is exclusively under the administrative direction of the NC State Graduate School. Enrollment for courses on other campuses will take place on this campus, using an Interinstitutional Approval form from Registration and Records. Such courses are considered by the Graduate School to be a part of the student’s normal load and the student will be billed for the courses through the NC State University Cashier’s Office. During the summer, the procedure is somewhat different in that a student must be enrolled in a least one course on the NC State campus during the same session as the requested interinstitutional registration.

When the grading system of the other institutions varies from that of NC State, grades received under Interinstitutional Registration will be converted to the NC State system. “H,” “P,” “L, and “F” grades earned at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and “E,” “G,” “S” and “F” grades earned at Duke University will be converted to “A,” “B,” “C” and “F” grades, respectively.
