Cross Registration


MassArt participates in four cross registration programs, which allow full time MassArt students to take courses at participating schools. Cross-registration is only available during the fall and spring terms.

This is a good option if you find you are having difficulty filling your schedule or if you would like to investigate other areas of the arts or academic disciplines not included in the MassArt curriculum.

You will pay for full-time status at MassArt as usual, but be able to attend the other schools. First year students are not eligible for cross-registration. Full-time graduate students may cross-register at M.I.T. and University of Massachusetts Boston only.

  • Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT): Open to full time sophomores, juniors and seniors and graduate students

In order for cross-registration courses to transfer appropriate credit to MassArt, they must be either be 3 credit courses or multiple courses in the same subject that total 3 credits. For example, a 1 credit choral performance class and a 2 credit vocal pedagogy class at Berklee would transfer to MassArt as 1 cross-registration, 3 credit course. The SMFA is the only exception to this rule. SMFA 1.5 credit classes have the same amount of credit hours as a 3 credit MassArt course and are transferred to MassArt as 3 credit classes. Graduate students may only transfer graduate credits.
