SF Consortium

UCSF students may take advantage of a cross-registration system among four member colleges and universities that make up the San Francisco Consortium:

Cross-Registration Policy: Regularly enrolled, full-time matriculated students of a San Francisco Consortium member institution may register for credit in courses offered by other member institutions with the consent of their faculty adviser and consent of the host institution instructor, as space is available in the desired class. This policy applies only for the regular sessions of the academic year and specifically excludes summer session, intersession, extension and similar programs. In addition:

  • City College of San Francisco
  • University of San Francisco
  • San Francisco State University
  • University of California, San Francisco
  • UC Law San Francisco
  • Golden Gate University

Complete an Application for SF Consortium

  • Cross-registration is limited to one course per quarter/semester at only one other institution except where special arrangements are made between participating institutions.
  • Cross-registration is not accepted until the first day of late registration at the host institution.
  • If the student falls below full-time status during the quarter/semester of the cross-registration, that enrollment will be canceled automatically.
  • If the student drops the course before completion, it is the responsibility of the student to notify both the host and home registrars and to fill out appropriate forms to avoid the recording of a "failure."
  • Students from consortium member institutions who enroll in the University of San Francisco (USF) will be charged the USF per-unit tuition rate published in the USF class schedule for that term and will be expected to make payment at the time of registration.
  • Students from consortium member institutions who enroll in the Golden Gate University will be charged the fee for the class per their charge schedule.
  • UCSF students participating in the Consortium program at City College, University of San Francisco, Golden Gate University, and UC Law San Francisco must submit an official transcript request to the host institution and pay the transcript fee for their grades to be sent to UCSF for the inclusion on their permanent record at UCSF.  Grades are reported directly from San Francisco State University to UCSF; therefore UCSF students do not need to submit or pay for official transcript request at San Francisco State University. 
  • Grades are available only from the home institution.
