LVAIC Cross-Registration

Full-time traditional students, other than first-year students, who are in good academic standing may register for courses at other institutions of the Lehigh Valley Association of Independent Colleges (LVAIC), provided those courses are not available to them at Cedar Crest. (Other LVAIC participating institutions are DeSales University, Lafayette College, Lehigh University, Moravian College and Muhlenberg College.) Traditional students will pay the comprehensive tuition to their home institution, but may be required to pay applicable fees to the host institution. Transportation is the student’s responsibility.  The cross-registration form must be obtained from the Registrar's Office at the student's home institution. 

Matriculated degree-seeking adult evening students also are eligible for LVAIC cross-registration privileges. Part time or non-traditional students will be billed by the host institution at their per credit rate, plus applicable fees.

For summer sessions, all students must pay the host institution’s tuition and fees.

All credits and grades earned at an LVAIC institution will be computed into the student’s cumulative average.

If students want to use an LVAIC course to satisfy either a major or a Liberal Arts Curriculum requirement, they must receive approval in advance from the appropriate Department Chair at Cedar Crest.


Undergraduate degree seeking students must be in good standing and have achieved at least sophomore status in order to cross-register.  Students may cross-register for up to two courses per term or summer session.  NO Independent study, on-line, tutorial, internship, audits, music lessons, other individualized instruction courses, or other exclusions as determined by the host institution are permitted through cross-registration.  Student teaching and graduate level courses are not available through LVAIC cross-registration.  Students may not cross-register for courses being offered on the home campus without specific approval from the home Registrar.  Students may not take a course equivalent to one in which they have already received credit at the home institution.  The number of credits assigned is the responsibility of the home institution.
