Inter-University Doctoral Consortium

The Graduate Center is a member of the Inter- University Doctoral Consortium (IUDC), which provides for cross registration among member institutions. Matriculated Graduate Center doctoral students may cross- register for doctoral study in the graduate schools of arts and sciences at the following institutions: Columbia University, Teachers College, Fordham University, The New School, New York University, NYU Steinhardt school of Education, Princeton University, Rutgers- New Brunswick (State University of New Jersey) and Stony Brook (State University of New York). The Graduate Center has a similar arrangement with the Bard Graduate Center for Studies in Decorative Arts, Design and Culture whereby students may take classes at either school with the appropriate permissions.

Once the request has been reviewed, students will be notified of their approval status, via email, as well as what steps to take next. Students will be required to reach out to the host campus IUDC Coordinator and host instructor to obtain signatures. Students will have until the 3rd week of classes to submit their completed form back to the Registrar.

Consortium Registration

Students approved to take a course at a consortium school will be enrolled for a permit course at The Graduate Center. Students will be billed for the number of credits taken at the participating school. Billing for the credits does not mean the student is enrolled for the course at the host campus.

Students are responsible for completing enrollment at the host campus. The IUDC coordinator at the respective school(s) will reach out to students to inform them of next steps.
