    Fletcher Language Audit Form

    • Fletcher students use this form to enroll in a Tufts language course for audit
    • Students cross-registering in a Tufts University language course for credit should cross-register through SIS
  • Fletcher Cross-Registration Policies

    Fletcher only has cross-registration agreements with Tufts University and the Harvard University graduate schools. Fletcher does not have cross-registration agreements with any other universities in the Boston area.

    All cross-registered courses must be graduate-level courses. Students may cross-register for up to 25% of their courses while at Fletcher. Students enrolled full-time are permitted to take no more than the equivalent of 6.0 Fletcher course credits at Tufts or Harvard in a given semester.


    Students may not audit a Harvard or Tufts graduate course. Students interested in auditing a Tufts language course should review the Language Audit page.


    How to Enroll at Tufts

    Cross-registration for courses at Tufts University can be completed online through SIS. To cross-register at a Tufts University school other than Fletcher, students should follow the steps outlined by the SIS team. Be sure to keep a spot open on your SIS record for the cross-registered course to be automatically added once the petition has been approved by the Tufts professor and the AS&E Registrar’s Office (Dowling Hall). Just in case, you may unofficially follow a back-up Fletcher course.

    Please remember to follow the host school’s instructions in regards to checking on course admittance and if any additional forms are needed. Remember to obtain a copy of the host school’s academic calendar as dates will be different than those of Fletcher. It is also recommended to check the final exam schedule to avoid any conflicts with Fletcher final exams.


    How to Enroll at Harvard

    Before cross-registering at Harvard, please ensure that you read and understand all cross-registration policies. It is your responsibility to know the policies before cross-registering.

    Please check each Harvard school’s website for the cross-registration enrollment dates. There is no pre-registration for Harvard courses. Each school normally gives priority to its own students so it is always best to register for a back-up Fletcher course and then drop it if need be. A Harvard instructor’s approval does not guarantee a spot in the course. Some courses have required fees for access to articles and specific software. These fees are not always well advertised so if you are concerned about a potential fee, please follow up with the appropriate Harvard Registrar’s Office directly for more information before you enroll in the course.

    Note: For all those interested in enrolling in Harvard Business School courses, HBS courses have a course fee associated with the course [typically $100 for 1.5 credit courses, and $200 for 3.0 credit courses, though subject to change] the fee covers all course materials for the course. As a course materials fee, it is the responsibility of the student to pay the fee.

    Please closely review the Harvard cross-registration instructions below and visit the My.Harvard cross-registration portal to set up a Harvard key. The Harvard key will either be synced to a current Harvard ID (HUID) or create a new HUID for you if this is your first time cross-registering. You will then receive an email from Harvard IT asking you validate your Harvard key. This will give you access to your own course enrollment page in Please know you must follow this process each semester you are attempting to cross-register, even if you have already set up a Harvard Key.

    If you have questions in regards to cross-registration dates or course specifics, please contact the appropriate Harvard Registrar’s Office.

    If you have any technical issues or receive any errors when trying to cross-register through the system, please first contact and should the issue continue try the registrar's office of the school you are attempting to cross register for and attach a screenshot of the error message.

    Winter Term Courses

    All courses taken during the winter term will be counted toward the spring term – no exceptions.
