Cross-campus registration


Cross-campus registration allows undergraduate students on the Vancouver campus to take courses at the Okanagan campus generally up to a maximum of 15 credits. Registration and enrolment is reviewed on a case-by-case basis.

Eligibility for cross-campus registration

The information below applies to undergraduate programs and courses. 

To be considered for registration at the Okanagan campus, Vancouver undergraduate students must have:

  • Completed a minimum of 24 credits, with grades
  • No failed courses in the most recent 24 credits
  • A minimum overall average of 68% on their most recent 24 credits
  • Satisfied all prerequisites for the course requested 

Cross-campus registration does not apply to graduate students, or students switching to an Okanagan degree program.

How to apply

You will not be able to register for cross-campus courses by yourself. A staff member in Enrolment Services at the Okanagan campus will complete your registration.

Faculties reserve the right to decline a request if the course is in high demand, or if the equivalent course is available at your home campus in either the Summer or Winter Session.

If you are a graduate student, please complete the Authorization and Course Registration Form.
