Cross-Registration

Courses at other Education City schools are available for students registered at Weill Cornell Medicine-Qatar (WCM-Q). 

WCM-Q students may enroll in classes at other Education City schools providing:

  • They are a second-year college student
  • There is space available in the class
  • They have received approval from their academic counselor
  • They have received approval from the WCM-Q registrar.

Applying for a cross-registration class

  • Complete the Education City cross-registration form. This is the only form that will be accepted and it must be completed online and printed off for appropriate signatures. Old/handwritten forms will not be accepted. In addition, you must submit a copy of your passport with the cross-registration request form. Forms will not be accepted if they are incomplete in any way.
  • Registration at the university in which you plan to enroll is on a first-come, first-served basis. Once your form has been processed by the WCM-Q registrar, you will then need to take the form to the host university to be registered for the course.
  • The host university will advise you if your application is successful.
  • Once your cross-registration course enrollment is confirmed by the host university, you must submit the course information to the WCM-Q registrar.

Reminder: By enrolling at another university in Education City, you are agreeing to follow their university rules and policies, which includes attending classes even if WCM-Q is closed. Not all universities follow the same academic calendar and you must adhere to the requirements of the host university.
