The Atlanta Regional Council for Higher Education’s Cross Registration Program allows students at ARCHE member institutions to broaden their academic experience by registering

for courses at other member colleges and universities.  It shares the resources of ARCHE

member specialties by providing students access to courses not offered at their home

institution and allows a chance to experience a different campus environment.  Registration is handled through a student’s home institution.  Students must contact their college or

university’s Cross Registration Coordinator.
