Course Re-registration

Once credit has been received for a class, it is normally not possible to register for the same course again. However, the re-registration system allows students who wish to deepen their understanding of the subject and who meet the following criteria to re-take a subject for which they have already received credit.

AY 2021 Fall Semester

Re-registration Procedures
  1. First, complete the online re-registration survey between 10:00 on Monday, September 13 and 16:30 on Wednesday, September 15.
  2. Screening will be carried out based on the reasons submitted. If an application is accepted, only when there is still space available for the desired subject after Course Registration Period A has closed will the University convert the grade of the previously completed subject to "R" (re-register). Subjects which have been changed to an "R" grade will be automatically registered by the University.
  3. The University will complete registration for those who are authorized re-register before course registration period B starts. Please note a subject is non-cancellable once registered by the University.
  4. Please check the results of your application on the course registration screen on Campusmate from 21:00 on Tuesday, September 28.
  1. Subjects which have been changed to an "R" grade as noted above will be automatically registered by the University.
  2. Subjects which have been changed to an "R" grade, once registered, cannot be changed.
  3. Subjects with a grade of "R" will still be considered valid as a completed prerequisite subject.
  4. Once a grade has been changed to an "R", it cannot be changed back to the original grade for any reason. "R" grades will also be shown on student grade reports and transcripts.
  5. Students will not be awarded any credits towards graduation and Areas of Study for "R" subjects and grades will not be included in a student’s GPA.
  6. If a student re-registers for a lecture subject, only the grades and credits of the re-registered subject will be counted towards graduation and Areas of Study and included in a student’s GPA.
  7. Even if a student receives a lower grade the second time he/she takes the subject, the second grade will be the only grade that counts towards graduation and which is included in GPA calculations. For example, if a student receives a "B" for a subject, but applies to retake the subject and then receives a "C" or an “F”, only the latter grade will be shown on the student’s transcripts with the original grade remaining as an “R”.
  8. The University will complete registration for those who are authorized to re-register. Please note a subject is non-cancellable once registered by the University.
  9. If you have registered for a regular subject during Course Registration Period A which overlaps with the subject you were allowed to re-register for, the University will cancel your registration for the regular subject for which you registered.
  10. If a re-registered subject does not conflict with the schedule of another subject, in the case that registration of the subject would cause the student's credits for that semester to exceed the maximum credit registration limit, then the University will cancel other lecture subjects at its discretion in order to allow for the re-registered subject. (Students cannot choose which subject will be cancelled.)
