Cross-Course Benefit FAQ
Which courses can I take?
You can take select courses from colleges and universities that are affiliated with our technology partner, 2U Inc. You can see a list of courses here.
Will I receive credit for taking these classes?
No. @WashULaw will not accept these courses as transfer credit.
How can I enroll in these classes?
You will enroll as a non-degree-seeking student at the course-providing institution. Your Student Support Advisor will be able to tell you more and walk you through the registration process.
How do I pay for these classes?
You will be billed by the course-providing institution at the school’s current per-credit rate. If you have questions about costs and billing, contact your Student Support Advisor.
Can I apply my financial aid toward these courses?
No, you will not be able to use your @WashULaw financial aid package to fund cross-university courses.
How is the cross-university course enrollment benefit different from @WashULaw’s dual-degree program with Tecnológico de Monterrey?
Washington University School of Law has a partnership with Tecnológico de Monterrey to offer a dual-degree program, the Master of Laws (LL.M.) in U.S. Law and Transnational Legal Practice. The courses offered by Tecnológico de Monterrey’s graduate school, the EGAP Graduate School of Government and Public Policy, count for credit toward the dual degree. Courses offered through the cross-university enrollment benefit do not count toward an @WashULaw degree; they are available solely for additional educational benefit.
What if the school’s semester schedule is different than @WashULaw’s?
You will attend courses on the schedule dictated by the course-providing institution. The @WashULaw course schedule only applies to @WashULaw courses.
How will the online learning experience be different?
The online learning experience will be very similar to your experience with the @WashULaw. These schools also partner with 2U, the technology company that provides our virtual campus. This means all classes will be live, online and taught by university faculty. Like Washington University School of Law, these schools have also partnered with 2U to create their course content, so you will continue to benefit from immersive, dynamic self-paced coursework.
