Course Registration

Course Registration

Course registration is the process in which each student registers for subjects they would like to take as well as a declaration of intent. Course registration is the most important part of course planning, and absolutely necessary in order to attend classes, receive credits, and graduate. Course registration occurs each semester. Please use the Undergraduate Academic Handbook, syllabi, Course Timetable (available on the Academic Office website) and course registration guidance materials below to create a study plan, then register for courses via Campusmate during the set course registration periods. If you are not fully prepared when course registration starts, it may lead to either incomplete or incorrect registration of classes, costing you valuable time and effort. Please take extra care when registering for classes to ensure you are able to progress in your study plan.

How to Register for Courses

Registration includes the following steps:

  1. Check the course registration schedule.
  2. Read the syllabi and find subjects you want to take.
  3. Confirm each course’s subject field, prerequisite subjects, and Area of Study using the subject list for your curriculum and college.
  4. Check the course timetable.
  5. Register for courses online during the set course registration period on Campusmate.
  6. After completing your registration, print or save the "Registration Confirmation Screen".
  7. Attend classes.
  8. If desired, make any changes to your course registration during correction periods.

Information Required for Course Registration
Trading Registered Courses with Other Students

Course registration is the most important procedure when studying at university. Trading or exchanging registered courses violates APU's rules regarding course registration. Even if no money is involved, exchanging courses still violates APU's regulations. Registering for courses you do not plan on taking with the intent of trading or exchanging them is a severe infringement on other students' right to study, preventing them from taking courses they sincerely want to study. Furthermore, the following acts are all subject to disciplinary action: trading a registered course to another student, asking another student to trade a registered course with you, actually receiving a traded course from another student, and intending to trade a course even if you did not in the end.
