COF courses in Sustainability

The full list of approved COF courses in 2023/24 will be coming soon
Please note that not every one of these courses is offered every year, but this list does give you an idea of courses you can search for on the cross registration website.

General information about COF cross registration can be found here.
To register for COF courses and find out about prerequisites, go here.
Registering for COF courses can be tricky.  You cannot do it through Self Service at this time.  Go to the Registrar or email the Minor Director Jane D. Marsching to find out how to register.

If you have questions, ask these faculty at each COF school, and also let them know that you are going to register for one of these classes (they are the sustainability faculty advisors at their respective institutions).
