Records and Registration
ARCHE Cross Registration
The Atlanta Regional Council for Higher Education’s Cross Registration Program allows students at Morehouse College (home) to broaden their academic experience by registering for courses at any of the 19 member institutions and receive credit, while paying tuition costs to the home institution. The “home” institution is the institution at which you currently are enrolled in a program for which academic credit is awarded. The “host” institution is the institution which you would like to attend to cross register for a course.
The program is designed to allow qualified students to take course work in their area of study that is not available on their own campuses. Courses count as resident credit and not as transfer. All courses and grades appear on Morehouse College transcript.
Applications are available at The Office of Records & Registration, Gloster Hall – Room 106, at http://www.atlantahighered.org/collaboration/cross-registration/, or by clicking the link below:
