The enrolment functions in CourseReg@EduRec, as well as information on how the different Registration Rounds will be conducted for each of the functions, are provided below.
Students are also strongly encouraged to refer to the CourseReg User Guide for Students, which provides screenshots on how to navigate within CourseReg.
All Undergraduate (UG) students will enrol for courses through the [Select Courses] function in CourseReg@EduRec.
Graduate (GD) students will enrol for courses through the [Select Courses] function for courses used towards their programme requirements (refer here).
Priority Scores computed for courses selected under this function will be based on the priority scoring rubrics.
In this round, GD students may select all Round 1 courses and programme elective courses (from own and other departments).
Students will vie for a spot in the course within the available places allotted to their student category (e.g. separate numbers for UG and GD).
This round is similar to Round 2 except that the balance quotas are merged for all categories of students (GD/UG/NG/CPE) to optimise class enrolment. That is, un-used quota from a particular category of students may be allocated to students from another category.
(Not applicable to UG students)
Graduate (GD) students will utilise this [Submit Course Requests] function to request for non-programme requirement courses (i.e. cross-faculty courses). The request will go through a two-step approval process: it is first routed to the home department for decision before approved requests are routed to the course host(s) for final assessment.
There is only one round of [Submit Course Requests] each semester.
With effect from Sem 1, AY2022/2023, Graduate Coursework (GDC) students taking non-programme requirement courses from self-funded (i.e. non-subsidised) programmes might be charged course fee for the course. Please contact the course host for more information.
Students will register for Tutorials/Labs after they have been allocated their courses. Students can refer to the [View My Classes] function to see the courses allocated to them.
Tutorial/lab registration is by balloting. The allocation of tutorial groups is an exercise that is separate from the allocation of courses by [Select Courses] or [Submit Course Requests]. Students should refer to the registration schedule for the dates of the different rounds for Tutorials/Labs registration.
For cross-listed courses that do not have tutorial groups of their own, please check the tutorial groups under the parent course code even though you may have registered under the cross-listed course code.
A tutorial group may be cancelled if enrolment for the group is low. If students cannot find a suitable tutorial group for a course, they may be required to drop the course and be asked to choose an alternative course with vacancies.
Students who read courses offered by the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences have to register for tutorial groups for their courses. Otherwise, the Faculty will withdraw the course with a ‘W’ grade in Week 5 of the semester.
Stages of Tutorial Registration:
1. [Select Tutorials/Labs] Function
2. [Add/Swap Tutorials/Labs] Function
3. Submission of appeals for tutorials to Course Host Departments
Dropping of courses:
A student may drop a course he/she is enrolled in so long as the remaining Units meet the minimum workload requirement. When a course is dropped, all associated classes (e.g. lectures, seminar, tutorial, labs, etc.) will be dropped in tandem.
When dropping a course, students should be mindful of the “W” and “F” grade period (refer to Academic Calendar). In general, students will be able to drop courses via the [Drop Classes] function before the “F” grade period. A student should approach the course host faculty if he/she has difficulty dropping courses via CourseReg@EduRec.
Dropping of tutorial/lab classes:
Students may drop a tutorial/lab class they have been successfully allocated if they wish to change to another class. Dropping a tutorial/lab class will not de-enrol a student from his/her course.
Where demand for a selected course exceeds the available places, the Priority Scores of students seeking to read a particular course will be used to determine course allocation.
The Priority Score for a course selected by a student is computed based on the Priority Scoring Rubrics applicable to the different student categories.
|Programme Requirements Category (in descending order of points) - An|
|Programme core courses|
|Programme electives (from own department)|
|Programme electives (from other departments)|
|Students’ Seniority (in descending order of points) - Bn|
|Type of Programmes (in descending order of points) - Cn|
|Rank Preference of Courses (in descending order of points) - Dn|
When students have the same Priority Score for a course and the demand exceeds the places available, tie-breakers are used to determine the final course allocation. Below are the tie-breakers for graduate students
|Tie-breakers (in descending order of consideration)|
|Student's home faculty is course host faculty|
|Course feedback points (not applicable to Yale-NUS courses)|
|Course Planning Exercise (CPEx) points (w.e.f. Sem 1, AY2021/22)|
