Cross-Registration with Olin College

Wellesley College students may cross-register for courses at Olin College of Engineering, and all courses have been pre-approved for transfer credit to Wellesley. Please follow the instructions below.

Cross-Registration Process

1. Fill out a cross-registration form here. Submit the form – when you click the “Submit” button, the form will be sent to the Registrar’s Office at Olin. 

2.  Follow the link to the transfer of credit form and follow instructions to seek departmental approval. Once the form has been sent to the Wellesley Registrar's Office from the department, your registration information will be sent to Olin.

3.  The Registrar’s Office at Olin will register you for the requested course(s) providing there is space and will subsequently notify you and the Wellesley Registrar’s Office of your registration status.

4.  When the Wellesley Registrar’s Office receives final grade(s) from Olin College, the transfer credit will be awarded if the course(s) were completed with a grade of “C” or higher. The course(s) will appear on the Wellesley transcript with a “TR” grade which means that the credit will be applied toward the degree but that the actual letter grade(s) earned will not appear on the Wellesley transcript and will not be included in the calculation of the cumulative GPA. As with all transfer work, the course(s) must be taken for a letter grade at Olin.
