I have just returned from the Student Exchange Programme (SEP) last semester. As my credits transfer is still pending the official transcript from the overseas university, I am still indicated as a Year 3 student when I should be in Year 4. How can I overcome this?
Students who are back from SEP but awaiting the Partner University’s (PU) transcript for official credit transfer may complete an ‘honour’ declaration to upgrade their ModReg Seniority (e.g. from Year 2 to Year 3 seniority) during the exercise. ‘Honour’ declaration can only be made for modules completed successfully (i.e. enrolled and passed) on SEP. The modular credits (MCs) from these SEP modules will then be added to your cumulative MCs and used for assigning your ModReg Seniority priority based on the promotion rules for the next level of study.
This declaration is only an interim measure to adjust your ModReg Seniority. Students are still required to complete the official credit transfer process to fulfil their degree requirements.
Students who make false declaration(s) may be subjected to disciplinary actions.
Please click here for the step-by-step guide to complete the declaration process.

a) Please check if the modules are offered in this semester via NUSMods.
b) Depending on which “Select Modules” round you are at, you can refer to the following general guide to check if the module is available to you in a particular round:
If you are unable to find the module in your module search though it is offered in this semester, you may submit an appeal under appeal type "Issues while selecting Module".
How do I find out if a module is available for me to select in the current round?
For the same module, it may be available to different students at different “Select Modules” rounds. Please determine what requirements can the module be used to satisfy your degree requirements. With that information, you can refer to the following general guide to check if the module is available to you in a particular round:
How many modules can I select for each “Select Modules” round?
A maximum workload policy of 23 MCs is in place for all students for “Select Modules” Round 1 and 2. This means that you can register for modules up to 23 MCs.
From Round 3 onwards, you can register for more modules up to the maximum allowable workload configured by your home faculty. If you wish to do more than the allowable workload, please seek approval from your home faculty by submitting appeal under appeal type "Max Workload Waiver".
I have fulfilled the requisites for a module. However, when selecting the module, I encounter an error message that states that I have not fulfilled the requisites.
Please submit an appeal under appeal type "Unable to fulfil Requisites".
I have been informed that certain modules will be pre-allocated to me. However, the modules are still not listed under “View My Classes”.
Pre-allocation of modules is arranged by students' home faculty. Thus, please check with your home faculty/department.
I have declared a minor programme. However, I am unable to select the module(s) for my declared minor in “Select Modules” Round 1.
Only students with restricted minor or direct admission minor will be able to select the modules in “Select Modules” Round 1. Students with open minor programmes will select the modules from “Select Modules” Round 2 onwards. Please refer to NUS Minor Programmes website for more information.
I failed a module last semester and am required to retake the module this semester. However, I am unable to find the module in my module search.
Please check if the module is offered in this semester via NUSMods. If the module was pre-allocated to you previously, please check with the home faculty on the pre-allocation.
Can I select a module that has lecture timetable clashes with any of the lecture/tutorial timetables of my allocated modules?
No, students are responsible to check that their timetable can accommodate all their lectures and tutorials. Students are required to look for alternative available tutorial slots.
I have selected my choice of modules for the current “Select Modules” round. However, I am unable to find the “Submit” button. How can I submit my choice of modules?
Modules that students have selected in the Main List of the “Select Modules” page, are deemed to have been submitted and will be validated at the end of the round.
How does "Reserve Classes" work?
Reserve classes are for students to indicate their next preferred module class in the event that they are unsuccessful for a particular Main List module. Students can select up to two reserve classes for each module in their Main List.
Modules in the Main List of all students will be processed first. After all the Main List modules have been processed and if you are unsuccessful for a Main List module, the system will then process the reserve module class(es) (if indicated) for that particular Main List module. The reserve class will be given the same rank score as that particular Main List module. For example, if the reserve module class is for Rank 1 Main List module, then it will be given Rank 1 score points.
How do I change the lecture group for a module?
If the module has not been allocated to you yet, you may re-select your preferred lecture group. If you have already been allocated the module, you will have to drop the module first before re-selecting your preferred lecture group. This can be done only if a “Select Modules” round is still available. After “Select Modules” Round 3, you may submit an appeal under appeal type “Change Lecture Class”.
I am staying in one of the Residential Colleges (RCs). How do I register for its modules?
You will register for the modules via ModReg. However, as the RCs may have configured your eligibility to read its modules differently, please contact the RCs admin office directly for clarification on the modules and classes available to you.
I am unable to select tutorial(s) for my module. What should I do?
Please check if the module has tutorial classes via NUSMods. If the module has tutorial classes and you do not see it under Select Tutorials/Labs page, please contact the module host department to enquire.
I have not secured a tutorial class after “Select Tutorials/Labs” Round 1. What should I do?
There are two rounds of tutorial balloting. If you are unsuccessful in the first round, you should try in the second round and/or subsequent “Add/Swap Tutorials/Labs” Round.
I want to switch my allocated tutorial class to another class in “Select Tutorials/Labs” Round 2, but I cannot drop my allocated class and perform ranking again. Why is this so?
Students who have been allocated tutorial classes in “Select Tutorials/Labs” Round 1 of balloting cannot rank those tutorial classes again. Adding/swapping of allocated tutorial classes can only be done during “Add/Swap Tutorials/Labs” Round.
My friend and I are from the same programme and level of study. However, my friend was allocated the module while I was not. Why is this so?
In a situation of a tie between/among students with the same priority score and the demand exceed the places available, the tie-breakers will kick in (please refer here for information on tie-breakers).
I accidentally/unintentionally dropped a module which I had obtained earlier. Can I get my module reinstated?
For a module to be dropped, students must go through a 3-steps process: select module to drop, click drop button and finally confirm the drop. Therefore, students have the chance to check the details of the module to drop before the action is being effected. As such, the module cannot be reinstated.
If the “Select Modules” round is still ongoing, you may try registering for the module again, or you can submit an online appeal if the “Select Modules” rounds are over. Please note that appeal approval is subjected to various conditions, such as the availability of vacancy.
In the process of dropping module(s), I received a message that the total MCs of my allocated modules fall below the minimum workload requirement. What should I do?
Please approach your home faculty/department to seek their assistance in dropping the module.
May I know the types of appeal available for students?
Please refer to the ModReg website and click "Submit Appeals/Inquiries Function" for details. Different appeal types are available during different period of time.
It has been many days since I filed my online appeal and I have not received a reply. Who should I contact?
You can refer to the ModReg website under the "Submit Appeals/Inquiries Function" for the unit that is handling your appeal (e.g. Student home faculty/department or module host department). Please refer to the Contact Us tab for the relevant faculty/department's contact information.
