MBA Course Requests

For Cross-Registration Students
The process listed on this page applies to graduate students from local universities (universities other than Carnegie Mellon).

As a graduate student doing cross registration from a local university, you may take a maximum of four Tepper School courses (24 units) throughout your academic career. The Tepper School of Business, MBA program requires that you have your advisor and faculty approval for all Tepper Graduate School courses. Please complete the following steps in the order listed below to ensure that your request is handled in a timely manner. It is suggested that you start this process approximately three weeks before classes begin.

This is a request system. You are not enrolled until all four steps are completed.


Step 1

You may take up to two courses per mini and up to four courses throughout your academic career. Review the list of available courses; the courses listed are the only courses available to graduate students from local Universities doing cross-registration.

Step 2

Contact your advisor. Your advisor will provide you with a form. A copy of this form needs to be provided to Tepper Student Services and the original needs to be delivered to the HUB. Upon receipt of the form, the HUB will create an Andrew ID for you. It is your responsibility to make sure that your request is approved by Tepper’s deadlines, which differ from the university’s.

Step 3

It is your responsibility to contact the faculty teaching each course to seek approval to register for the course. Once you have the faculty’s approval, forward the email to Marilyn Hersh at

Step 4

After advisor and faculty approval have been received, you will be placed on the internal Tepper School roster or waitlist. You will receive an automatic email regarding your status. Approximately two business days after receiving the email from “add/drop”, check the SIO. If the course appears on the SIO, you are successfully registered. If you do not see the course after three business days, contact Marilyn Hersh at

If you have any questions, please contact Masters Student Services.

Tepper School deadlines are different than University deadlines. You must adhere to the Tepper School's add/drop deadlines. For more information, go to Tepper School Academic Calendar.
