The Associated Colleges of the St. Lawrence Valley (ACSLV) expands educational possibilities by increasing the number of available courses.

Members colleges include Clarkson University, St. Lawrence University, SUNY Canton, and SUNY Potsdam.

Associated College's cross-registration program allows a full-time student registered at one of the four member colleges to take classes on the other three ACSLV campuses at no extra cost and without going through separate admissions procedures. Full-time students may register for a maximum of two courses per academic year. Tuition is paid only to the home institution.

Cross-Registration Regulations


  • Clarkson students must be matriculated into a degree program at Clarkson. (Students attending Clarkson as part of an approved study-abroad program may also cross-register).
  • Clarkson employees must be employed full-time, or have faculty emeritus status.

Instructions for Clarkson Students:

  • Once you have identified the course(s) for which you would like to cross-register, fill out and print the Cross-Registration Form.
