Students who wish to take classes at Princeton must be fully vaccinated in order to be approved to participate. Princeton graduate students who wish to participate at a host institution must abide by the host institution health protocols. The Graduate School joined this consortium beginning in the academic year 2002-03. The members include: Columbia University, Teachers College-Columbia, City University of New York-Graduate Center, Fordham University, the New School for Social Research, New York University, Rutgers-New Brunswick, and Stony Brook University. The consortium exists to facilitate doctoral arts and science students taking needed coursework at one or several of the other institutions. It is for graduate course-taking only, indicated by a course number of 500 or above. It does not arrange or sanction dissertation research and/or faculty consultation at member institutions. Please note: Students who wish to take one course only at Columbia University, should go through the IUDC exchange, not the Exchange Scholar Program. Students must have completed one academic year of full-time residence in a Ph.D. program. No tuition or fees are exchanged. Grades will be reported through an official transcript from the host institution, and the course will be reported on the student's Princeton transcript. Please note that students must abide by the host institution's grading policies. Students may not audit courses through the IUDC exchange program. Students who want to participate are urged to make contact, either themselves or through their advisers, with the instructor of the course they want to take before starting the formal application process. For further questions, please contact the consortium office of either the home or host school as applicable. Register The 2023-24 deadlines for registration at Princeton are September 11 for the fall term and February 5 for the spring term. Instructions for Princeton University Students Registration Complete application: Complete the IUDC Registration Form. Fill out all areas of the form clearly and legibly for accurate registration and grade reporting. Be sure that you have provided your full address, including zip code, as well as a phone number and email address at which the host school can reach you in addition to all course information. Sign the bottom of the form Obtain signatures: Obtain signatures in the following order only (signatures will not be given out of order): Princeton Department Chair, Director of Graduate Studies, or Adviser Princeton IUDC Coordinator Host School Course Instructor Host School Dean / IUDC Coordinator Register at host school: Please refer to the host school IUDC website for registration procedures. This may include proof of immunization. Provide a copy of the registration form to the IUDC Coordinator at the host school after you have collected the other three signatures. Return the completed registration form: Forms should be returned to the Princeton IUDC Coordinator. Dropping a Course If you need to drop your IUDC course, please be sure to do so by the host school's drop/add deadline by contacting the host school's IUDC Coordinator. Please also inform the Princeton IUDC Coordinator that you've dropped the course. Grades and Transcripts Member schools send each other final grades approximately three weeks after the end of each semester. If you have completed your course and your grade has been posted at the host school by that time you need not do anything else to get your grade at Princeton. If you have not completed your course or your grade has not been posted by the time of the grade exchange, then it is your responsibility to take actions that will get your grade to Princeton. Once a grade has been posted at the host school, contact the host school IUDC Coordinator and request that a transcript be sent to the Princeton IUDC Coordinator. The host school IUDC Coordinator will then have a new transcript sent to Princeton at no cost to you. Host school rules on course completion apply, so if you do take an incomplete, be sure you are familiar with those rules if you do not intend to complete the course right away.
