Student Cross Registration
Consortium for Urban Education

IUPUI is a member of the Consortium for Urban Education (CUE) in the Indianapolis area. By special arrangement among the member institutions, undergraduate students are given the opportunity to enroll in undergraduate courses at other CUE institutions that are not available at their Home institution. Cross registration enables undergraduate students to enhance their degree programs by taking an undergraduate course at another CUE institution and receive credit at their Home institution upon successful completion of the course. Note that academic calendars for each CUE institution vary. For your convenience, here are links to CUE institution home pages and academic calendars.
