The Associated Colleges of the St. Lawrence Valley (ACSLV) course exchange allows a student registered at SUNY Potsdam, SUNY Canton, Clarkson University, and St. Lawrence University to take classes on the other three ACSLV campuses at no extra cost and without going through separate admissions procedures. Full-time students may register for a maximum of two courses per academic year. Tuition is paid only to the home institution.

Cross Registration Regulations and Forms: www.associatedcolleges.org/services/crossregistration.htm
Cross-registration is open only to full-time matriculated undergraduate and graduate students and full-time staff members within the member institutions of the Associated Colleges of the St. Lawrence Valley.
Eligible students and staff may register for a maximum of two (2) courses per academic year. Exceptions to this limitation may be made by the institution offering the course.
The cross-registration program makes it possible for any matriculated full-time student or full-time staff member of one of the four colleges of the consortium to enroll in a course offered by another institution, improving the depth and variety of the student's academic program.
Students wishing to register into a class you teach are required to have your signature as the instructor. However, you are not required to admit the student. Cross-registration is on a space available basis. All students from your institution who wish to take your course should be admitted before a cross-registered student is admitted.
As a faculty advisor, you must sign your advisee's cross-registration form to insure that the proposed course satisfies the student's program and credit-hour requirements. A student should be advised to take the course at the home institution, not to cross-register for a course, if there is an appropriate choice available.
Names of cross-registered students will not appear on class rosters issued by your registrar's office, nor should you ever add them to official records, Grade rosters are provided to you by the student's home institution.
Institutional academic calendars and grading systems often differ. Therefore, the grade rosters sent to you by the student's home institution may arrive on different schedules. Faculty grading cross-registration students are requested to do so on the system of the student's home school. The systems are explained when the rosters are sent.
Mid-term and Final Grades
The consortium institutions vary in the existence and use of mid-term grades.
Please return all mid-term and final grade rosters promptly to your Registrar. She will make any needed notations and pass the rosters to the student's home institution.
