Cooperating Raleigh Colleges (CRC) is a consortium of six colleges and universities in Raleigh and Wake County that allows students to study and experience campus life at different institutions of higher learning without having to transfer. The consortium includes Wake Tech, Meredith College, North Carolina State University, Saint Augustine's University, Shaw University and William Peace University.
Each institution offers unique courses and programs that can enhance the college experience for any student. This includes technical, career, military science, performing arts, foreign languages and many other courses. 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.
Complete the CRC Application and email it to [email protected]. Your application will then be forwarded to an academic advisor, a division dean and the Registrar's Office for approval. Once approved, your application will be sent to the institution; you do not have to go to the other institution to register. All communication about your application will go to the email indicated on your CRC application.
You must notify the Wake Tech Registrar's Office that you want to withdraw. The Registrar's Office will ask the other institution to remove your name from the course roster. Email [email protected] to request to be withdrawn.
You may take up to two CRC courses per semester during Fall and Spring semesters if you are enrolled full time – at least 9 credit hours.

Yes, you may take online courses. But CRC courses are available only during the Fall or Spring semesters. If you are interested in taking Summer courses at Wake Tech, you must apply as a visiting student in the traditional way.
You will not be charged tuition at Wake Tech. You will pay for tuition at your home institution. However, you will be responsible for any special fees (lab fees, art fees, etc.) and any books or supplies required for the CRC course. These expenses are not covered by financial aid.
Once you are enrolled, do not register yourself for classes. The Registrar's Office at Wake Tech will manually register you for the course(s) for which you have been approved. You may be held financially responsible for any course you register for on your own for which do not have approval.
