Changes to day or night school (school registration has not been changed)
  • - Application period and process: Students must acquire the application from the department (college) and submit the accomplished form to the supervising professor and the department head or the division head.
  • - General change: Students are allowed to change all of their subjects once during the enrollment if they cite reasons such as job acquisition, change in work shift, or curriculum requirement. Students must acquire permission from the Director of the division or the department and submit relevant documents such as their certificate of enrollment.
  • - Partial change: Students may be authorized by the department head to change up to 9 credits, and it not limited.
Equivalent subjects: Only one subject may be counted as a graduation requirement.
  • - For list of equivalent subjects → University Portal > Academics > Classes > Courses—Lecture Hall > for Equivalent/Similar Courses, search using a “course code”
Course Changes in the Reformed Curriculum
  • - Course Changes in the Reformed Curriculum—New Curriculum. Returning students must inquire about equivalent and similar courses to avoid the duplication of subjects or the omission of mandatory subjects.
  • - Subject requirements are applied to common (continuing) mandatory subjects contained within the academic curriculum from the year of entrance to the university to the year of graduation, and requirements for returning students are determined based on the number of credits that they have already acquired upon their return (if the equivalent or similar subjects are included in the list of closed subjects, these are counted mandatory requirements.)
  • - Students should review the lecture plan of the relevant subject before registering to be fully aware of the subject outline, subject objective, evaluation method, textbook, and progress plan and be able to apply their knowledge to the lecture evaluation upon the course’s completion.
  • - The subject entered by the student becomes the material for the subject registration and grade processing, so students must check the course registration details to prevent the risks of incorrect entry or class disruption once the semester begins.
  • - The number of students for each subject is restricted considering the size of the lecture room, and entry is not possible when the maximum number is exceeded. Thus, students are advised to register in other lectures or subjects.
