TIPS1: Order Registration

Order registration is a method in which multiple registrations are made for courses that are likely to fill beyond capacity and require a drawing.
You may list courses in the order of desire in a pull-down menu. When you select an order for the courses, always begin with 01 (first choice). If you select only 02 (second choice), the drawing for this choice will be held after the drawing for the first choice students has been completed, meaning that the possibility for registering for the course will be extremely low.

■Return to top of page

TIPS2: Category Change

When choices of category are available in a pull-down menu, you may change the Category for your course registration. For example, you may cancel a course that has exceeded the credit limit and change the category to one not included in the credit limit, enabling you to register for the course you desire.

TIPS3:Enter the reason for application for courses

Courses with “Apply” in the Note column of the course search screen are courses that require you to call up the “Application Form” from a separate screen and enter information such as the reason for application for courses.
*Please note that if the application form is not used for 120 minutes, the session will be terminated and you will need to call it up again.

TIPS4:Special enrollment fees

When “Fee” is displayed in the Note column on the Search Result screen, special enrollment fees must be paid for the courses.
Please note that the auditing fee for most of the automatically registered subjects are included in the tuition at the time of enrollment. You don’t need to pay the fee in such case.
