Interinstitutional Agreement Students

Students at participating schools may take one summer course at Duke by using the Interinstitutional Agreement, provided that the student is concurrently enrolled at their home institution for one full course credit.

Students wishing to register for a Duke University course through the Interinstitutional Registration Program should contact the registrar's office of their home institution for instructions regarding initial registration procedures. Visiting interinstitutional students cannot participate in the online registration process at Duke and should not submit a Summer Session application.

Students should submit their Interinstitutional Approval Form to their home institution giving ample time for review/action prior to the beginning of classes at Duke. Priority for registration for all Duke University courses is given to Duke students. Interinstitutional students are assigned to available class seats beginning on the first day of drop/add. Interinstitutional students are not included on wait lists.

Visiting students should review the Duke University Academic Calendar before requesting enrollment. Students graduating concurrently with interinstitutional enrollment should pay particular attention to the Duke University Exam Schedule.

Registration Deadlines

Visiting students should observe and follow the registration deadlines, including drop/add, of their home institution.

Confirmation of Enrollment

Confirmation of class enrollment will be sent to the email address on the Interinstitutional Approval Form. The notification will include all pertinent information relating to registration and auxiliary services.

Access to DukeHub/Sakai

Within 48 hours after you receive your confirmation of enrollment students will receive an email from OIT (Office Office of Information Technology) that will include a link for a student to receive a NetID and password which will enable the student to access DukeHub and Sakai. If enrollment is completed after classes have started, students will not have access to DukeHub and Sakai. Course materials (syllabi, homework assignments, etc.) are available only in DukeHub and Sakai.


Charges for courses taken at Duke will be billed to the student's account at the home institution according to the rates at the home institution. There may be special fees associated with a particular course and should be paid at Duke University.


Grades will be reported at the end of the term to the Registrar's Office of the visiting student's home institution. Grades will be in accordance with the Duke University grading system and will be converted into the home institution's grading system by the home institution before being added to the student's record.

Library Usage

Visiting students must present a current student ID with an active expiration date from their home institution when checking out material from the Perkins Library. More information concerning library usage is available from the Duke University Perkins Library Circulation Desk at 919-660-5870.
