Course Selection Infomation

  • Where can I look up course credit limit, graduation credit and graduation requirement of department?

    You may visit “Curriculum Structure System” (課程結構查詢系統) for curriculum structure of all departments or refer to department office for more details.

  • Preliminary course registration has two periods, new and current student, but when is the time for returning students?

    For returning students apply for reenrollment, the registration for fall semester is August 1st and spring semester is February 1st. If returning students reenroll before course add/drop period may register for courses with current students in the preliminary course registration (preliminary course registration in spring semester is after August 1st and in fall semester after April 1st). If returning students reenroll after preliminary course registration, they can only register for courses in the course add/drop period.

  • Preliminary course registration has two phases, new and current student, but when is the time for transfer student?

    Course registration system distinguishes new and current students by student ID number. Student ID number of transfer student and current student is the same. Therefore, transfer students may register for coursers in the preliminary course registration as current students. But, if transfer students enroll after preliminary course registration, they can only register for courses in the course add/drop period.

  • When do returning students who takes a leave as new student register for courses?

    For student who takes a leave in the first semester is regarded as current students and should register for courses as normal returning students.

  • When do returning students with deferment register for courses?

    Returning students with deferment are regarded as new students, and should register for courses as new students.

  • I had applied for credit transfer of a course, should I register of that course as well?

    It is recommended to register for the course you applied for credit transfer at preliminary course registrations, then, drop the course at course add/drop period after the application of credit transfer is approved. If you do not drop the course during course add/drop period, according to “Student Credit Transfer Guidelines” (辦理學生抵免學分要點)PDF, it is stated as “If student whose course credit transfer is approved but still register for the course, grade of the course is still shown on the transcript, but not included within the minimum credit requirement of graduation.

  • Why couldn’t I add course in my course selection list?

    If you are unable to add course in the list, course registration system will display the reason that causes such problem. It may be students do not fill out priority list of preferred courses, select repeated course on the same list, or do not fit the qualification of limitation of course, and so on.

  • Are required courses NOT being counted within intended credit units?

    No, the number of “intended credit units” should be filled out by students. The number of intended credit units stands for the total credit units of elective or general/language courses which a student intend to register for in each semester. The credit units of "elective and general/language courses" are counted separately and do not include the credit units of "required courses".

  • Required courses in our department are allocated by groups. Does the course registration system already select the required courses for me?

    If required courses are allocated by groups, your department office might not select the course for you. Please confirm the list of required courses in the course registration system first. If you cannot find the required course in the system, please select the course on your own.

  • Do graduate students have required courses already selected in the course registration system?

    It varies by departments. Please confirm the list of required courses in the course registration system first. If you cannot find the required course in the system, please select the course on your own.

  • I’d like to select courses of 28 credits, but why couldn’t I input 28 in the box of intended credit units?

    It is because the maximum credits include required courses. Therefore, you have to delete the number of credits of required course first, then input the number of intended credit units.

  • Does the time sequence of registering courses in the preliminary course registration influence the result of my course registration?

    No, the registered courses in the preliminary course registration are under computerized selection and based on what courses are displayed on “Registration Status Result” online, not related to the time you register for courses.

  • If I forget to register for courses at preliminary course registration, what should I do?

    Please make sure to register courses at course add/drop period. However, it is “first come, first register” in the add/drop period without computerized selection.

  • Why couldn’t I register course in other department in the preliminary course registration online?

    It may be the limitation of the course that stops you from selecting the course. Limitation of course is based on the consideration of teaching professional, classroom equipment and student number by departments. You may click on the course in the system and see if there is any limitation of course.

  • For required course is already in the course selection list, should I select or rank priority of this course?

    No, you do not have to. But, if the required course is not in the course selection list, you have to select yourself and rank the priority.

  • I am a graduate student. Should I register course during preliminary course registration only?

    Course registration have two periods, preliminary and add/drop. The preliminary course registration is done through computerized selection. If the result of course status fits your need, then you don’t have to go through add/drop period for registering courses. It is noted that you have to confirm course registration status online after preliminary course registration in case you did not register the course you want but did not notice the situation.

  • How to check the result of course registration status from preliminary course registration?

  • Could I drop required course?

  • How to reset the password of online course registration system?

    Please visit NKFUST Home/Student/Pin request for online services. The system will send a new password to your webmail.

  • Does graduate student have to register for thesis? Should the credit of thesis be added in the box of intended credit units? Could I take course registration of thesis online?
