Northeastern University

Steps for cross-registration for students registered at Northeastern University:

  1. Some GCWS courses will have corresponding course numbers in the NEU catalogue while students will register for others as a WGSS Directed Study (WMNS 7976) under the guidance of an NEU faculty member.  Please consult Kiki Samko, Program Coordinator for the Women's, Gender, and Sexuality Studies program at NEU, for the current course numbers and/or information about pursuing the Directed Study option.

  2. NEU students need to complete a registration form specific to the GCWS by acquiring an advisor’s signature and the signature of Kiki Samko, Program Coordinator for WGSS.  The completed form will be scanned and emailed to the GCWS Program Manager. 

  3. When the course is finished, grades will be sent by the GCWS Program Manager to Kiki. She will provide the final grade via email to the NEU faculty member overseeing the course. The faculty member is responsible for reporting grades for the Directed Study/course to the NEU registrar via change-of-grade form. The grade is then posted on students’ NEU transcript.

  4. GCWS courses will normally carry elective credit for graduate students, but details need to be determined in consultation with the students’ graduate committees.

  5. Note that students who are planning to finish a degree the semester in which they are enrolled in a GCWS course have to contact the GCWS Program Manager and the course instructors at the beginning of the semester with their graduation and grade deadline date. The grade deadlines of both institutions may not coincide and, depending on the semester, these students may need to submit work for early evaluation by the instructors in order to graduate on time.
