Students have the opportunity to take courses from other University System of Maryland institutions offering courses at USG to augment their degree program under the Inter-Institutional Registration program (formerly known as Course Sharing).


Students must register for courses via the Inter-Institutional Registration Procedure. Please refer to the IIR schedule of classes to determine eligible courses for the upcoming semester and  the number of available seats.

Program Requirements:

  • Enrollment in courses is on a space-available basis and visiting students are expected to meet prerequisites or other criteria set by the host institution.
  • Tuition and fees are paid at the home institution.
  • To participate in the Inter-Institutional Concurrent Registration Program students must:
    • Have, at least, sophomore standing;
    • Be in good academic standing;
    • Be enrolled full-time in a degree program at the home institution for the semester in which the course(s) are taken. Full-time status is defined as a combination of credits registered for at the home institution and the registered credits at the host institution;
    • Have the approval from the home institution USG Program Director for the course to count as credit in your program;
    • Comply with the host institution's registration procedures and deadlines.
