Important Notes for Course Registration

  • Students cannot register over the credit limit per semester.
  • Students cannot register for subjects held during the same period on the same day, unless the subjects are held during different quarters.
  • Students are not able to register for subjects that have reached capacity.
  • If you fail to earn credits for an automatically-registered subject that is required for graduation, the university will automatically register you for the subject again in the following semester.
  • Students cannot normally register for subjects that they have already passed, even if the instructor, class letter, or language is different. However, students may register for subjects that can be taken more than once. For information about eligible subjects, please check the "Re-registration Possible" column on the Subject List for your college and curriculum.
  • Undergraduate "Special Lecture" and graduate "Special Studies" subjects can be taken more than once only if the lecture content is different. Even if the lecture content is the same, it will appear tn the course registration screen of Campusmate, so please do not register for a lecture with the same content. To confirm whether the content varies from a subject in which you have already received credits, please check the topic list and the syllabus.
  • Students are not able to register for subjects that do not appear on their course registration screen.
  • Students must complete the necessary procedures in order to register for subjects requiring prior application.
  • Courses may be cancelled if the number of students registered does not meet the established minimum quota.
  • Students to whom the following conditions apply are not allowed to register for Session Subjects.
Curriculum Conditions
2023 Curriculum Students in their 8th semester or above *2who have already earned at least 100 credits *3
2017 Curriculum Students in their 8th semester or above *2who have already earned at least 100 credits *3
2011 Curriculum *1 Students in their 8th semester or above *2who have already earned at least 100 credits *3
  • *1Students who changed from the AY 2006 Curriculum to the AY 2011 Curriculum as a result of a status change or reenrollment will fall under the AY 2006 conditions.
  • *2Accelerated Graduation Program students will fall under the same conditions as those in their intended semester of graduation.
  • *3Credits earned through exchange programs or distance learning programs are transferred as APU credits. As a result, if a student reaches the maximum number of credits in the middle of the semester, the student will no longer be considered eligible to register for session subjects. If it is possible that this will happen to you, we strongly recommend you register for classes other than session subjects.

If an ineligible student registers for a session subject, the University will remove that subject from the student’s schedule.
