Cooperating Raleigh Colleges

This consortium of six colleges and universities in Raleigh and Wake County allows students to study and experience campus life at different institutions of higher learning – without having to transfer. The CRC includes Wake Tech, Meredith College, NC State University, William Peace University, Saint Augustine’s University, and Shaw University. 

Each institution offers unique courses and programs that can enhance the college experience for any student. Full-time students at these schools can elect to take courses at any other CRC institution – it’s easy, and students simply pay tuition and fees to their home institution. Registration procedures at each institution may vary: http://crcraleighcolleges.org/courses/cross-registration/

Wake Tech Students

To be eligible to take a CRC course, you must:

  • Have a cumulative GPA of 2.0 or higher.
  • Be enrolled for at least 9 credit hours for the semester. (CRC course hours DO NOT count as part of the 9 hours.)

  • Have satisfied all developmental course requirements if you placed into a sequence of two or more developmental courses.
  • Be enrolled in a degree-seeking program at Wake Tech. 

To register for a CRC course: 
Complete a CRC application form (available here) and have it signed by your assigned faculty advisor (or the College Transfer Advising Center) and the Dean or Department Head for your major. The Registrar’s office will forward your application to the institution you’ve chosen to visit – you do not have to go to the other institution to register. You will be notified via email (at your my.waketech.edu email account) by the institution. 

To withdraw from a CRC course:
You must provide the Wake Tech Registrar with written notification. The Registrar will ask the other institution to remove your name from the course roster.
