*When online classes exceed half of the total class time, they are classified as “Online Courses”. At the undergraduate level, there is an upper limit on the number of “Online Course” credits that can be counted toward graduation, however, the course registration system does not check the maximum number of online courses (60 credits) that can be counted toward graduation, so please take care yourself not to exceed the limit.

In addition, you may be able to change the classification of courses for which you have been approved for registration within a specified period of time as determined by your School/Graduate School. Please check the course registration guide of your School/Graduate School for the applicable courses and time period.
STEP5: Course Cancellation
●Cancelling courses that are marked as “Tentative selection” or “Registration submitted”

●Cancelling courses that are “Registered”
*Some “Registered” courses are possible to cancel within a limited period of time. For details, please refer to “●TIPS2: Category Change/Course Cancellation“.
STEP6: Confirm Registered Course List
(1) You can check the details of your application on the first page of Course Registration. The courses with the status “Registration submitted” are the courses that have been accepted for registration during the course registration period.
(2) On the day after the application for registration is submitted, you will receive a Web Course Registration daily mail. A list of courses marked as “Registration submitted” will be shown in the e-mail. You will receive the email within the next day, so please make sure to check that your application details have been correctly reflected.
*Note that a Web Course Registration daily mail will only show the contents of your application to register for courses, and it is not the final registration result. Please check STEP7 for the final registration results.
*The Web Course Registration daily mail will contain information about courses that you applied for between 8:00 AM and 26:00 AM (2:00 AM) on the previous day, and which applications were accepted correctly. Emails will be sent sequentially from the morning after the day you apply for a course, but it may take some time to deliver depending on the number of users.
STEP7: Confirm Registration Results
(1) On the day that course registration results are announced, you will be able to check the registration results of the courses you applied for on the Web Course Registration screen. Courses that were approved for registration will be marked as “Registered,” courses that were not approved as a result of the lottery will be marked as “Over enrolled,” and courses that could not be registered due to a registration error will be marked as “Not Accepted”.
(2) You will also receive an email confirmation of your course registration result on the day of the announcement.
Please be sure to check the “Status (Registered, Not accepted, or Over enrolled)” of your courses. If you have registered for a course for which you are required to pay the Audit/course enrollment fees, you will receive a “Payment information email”. Be sure to save payment related e-mails in a safe place until your grades are announced for that year.
TIPS1: Preferred Order Registration
Preferred Order Registration is a method in which multiple registrations are made for courses that are likely to fill beyond capacity and require a lottery for seats.
You may list courses in the order you prefer 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 processed after the lottery for the students with first choices has been completed, meaning that the possibility for registering for the course will be extremely low.
TIPS2: Category Change/Course Cancellation
You may change the course classification or cancel the registration of courses during the designated period specified by your School/Graduate School.
When choices of category are available in a pull-down menu, you may change the course category for your course registration. For example, if a course registration limit has been exceeded and an error occurs, you may cancel the application, and as a new application, you can change the course category to one that does not count toward the limit.
After the end of the course registration period, it may be possible to cancel courses that have already been decided. Please check the course registration guidebooks of your School/Graduate School for the eligible courses and application period.
*If you apply for cancellation of a course that has already been approved as “Registered”, you will not be able to apply for registration for the course again during the same course registration period. When applying for cancellation, please apply carefully.
*Courses that do not appear as eligible for course cancellation during the course cancellation period specified by your School/Graduate School, may not be eligible for cancellation.
●Courses subject to prior registration such as seminars
●Courses that were determined by automatic registration (required courses)
●Courses for which audit/course enrollment fees are required
●Courses offered by centers, or schools/graduate schools other than your own
([Undergraduate students] University-wide Open Courses, Courses offered by the Center for International Education, and Courses offered at Other Undergraduate Schools)
([Graduate school students] Common Courses among Different Graduate Schools, Course Open to Graduate School Students, and Courses Offered at Other Graduate Schools)
TIPS3: Courses that Require a Reason for Application
Courses with an “Apply” button in the Note column of the course search screen are courses that require you to open an “Application Form” from a separate screen and enter information such as the reason why you applied for the course.
*Please note that if the application form is inactive for 120 minutes, the session will be terminated, and you will need to open a new form 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. In such cases, you do not need to pay the fee.
TIPS5: Links to Related Websites
When “URL” button is displayed in the Note column on the Search Result screen, there are websites available that are related to the course.
Click “URL” button and you will be linked to the related website.
