Inter-Institutional Course Registration

- -

I. Registration for courses at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill (UNC), North Carolina State University (NCSU) and North Carolina Central University (NCCU) cannot be done through the DukeHub. View the university’s full policy about inter-institutional courses here. Course numbering schemes at UNC and NCSU are similar to Duke’s but please pay careful attention to the course level to make sure it is at an appropriate graduate level. Once you submit an enrollment request form, please plan to go to class even if your registration has not been fully processed so that you do not fall behind on assignments.

>> IMPORTANT! Effective fall 2018, undergraduate (UG) courses will no longer count for credit toward Duke graduate/professional students’ degree requirements or GPA calculation, which means courses below the 500-level may not be applied toward the required credits needed for a post-baccalaureate degree. This change in university policy applies to all incoming and continuing graduate and professional students throughout Duke, effective fall 2018; this policy includes undergraduate courses taken through inter-institutional enrollment. Course Numbering at UNC, NCSU and NCCU.

III. The following steps are required for inter-institutional registration: 

  1. Course registration form required
  2. Student’s signature required
  3. Academic coursework advisor signature is not required
  4. Departmental approval required; see the NSOE Registrar in the Student Services

IV. Course attributes: students must refer to the visiting institution’s website to determine whether or not a course requires instructor consent to enroll.

  • If instructor consent is required, it must be obtained before the form is submitted and processed. Students may attach the instructor’s email giving permission to enroll or the instructor may provide an original signature
  • Not all courses will require instructor consent to enroll; in fact, most will not
  • Courses at Duke or through inter-institutional enrollment taken to fulfill a prerequisite do not count towards the credits required for the MEM or MF degrees

V. Just because a course gets added by Duke does not guarantee the student space in the class. The student will receive notification directly from the visiting institution to confirm official enrollment in the course. If the student does not receive notification from the school, the student should check with the instructor at the visiting institution to make sure their name appears on the official class roster.

>> IMPORTANT! Students wishing to drop a course at UNC, NCSU or NCCU course must first drop the course in the DukeHub then send an email to registrar@duke.edu indicating the specific course you have dropped and when the course was dropped in the DukeHub so that the registrar can confirm with the other school. Duke’s drop/add deadlines apply to inter-institutional enrollment.
