Cross-campus registration

Cross-campus registration allows undergraduate students on the Vancouver campus to take courses at the Okanagan campus. A maximum of 15 credits can generally be taken as a cross-campus registrant - this is reviewed on a case-by case basis.

Eligibility for cross-campus registration

The information below applies to Arts and Science courses. Requests for other courses will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis by the governing faculty or school.

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 

How to apply

You won't be able to register yourself in cross-campus courses. A staff member in Enrolment Services at the Okanagan campus will register you.

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.
