(1) Class Enrollment

There are 3 major periods in the class enrollment process supported by the Student Information System (SIS) :

  • Validation Period (Shopping Cart Appointment)

  • Enrollment Period (Enrollment Appointment)

  • Add / Drop Period (Open Enrollment) and Extended Drop Period



i) Validation Period (Shopping Cart Appointment)

  • This is the period when you prepare your class enrollment requests after seeking academic advice from program office.  You may search for classes, look up course information and plan your schedule, until the end of the add/drop period.   

  • Before you proceed to the next class enrollment stage, you may also need to request for approval from course instructors and/or program office for special class enrollment cases.


ii) Enrollment Period (Enrollment Appointment)

  • You will be assigned an appointment start time to submit class enrollment requests in the shopping cart to confirm enrollment.  Again, enrollment can be processed till the end of add/drop after the start time.


iii) Add/Drop Period (Open Enrollment) and Extended Drop Period

  • You may change your course/class choice during the announced add/drop period.

  • Request for auditing a class can be submitted during this period.

  • Extended Drop Period is for regular full-term postgraduate courses only.  PG students who have taken UG courses have to follow the Add/Drop deadline of the UG courses which normally do not have extended drop period.  Some PG courses, especially half-term courses with irregular add/drop period, do not follow the Add/Drop and Extended Drop periods as announced above.  Please click here for details.

  • According to the University academic regulation, requests for adding or dropping courses after the add/drop period will not be accepted.  Students should allow sufficient processing time for the System to handle their add/drop requests.  Completion of an add/drop process depends on a lot of factors such as system loading.  Please avoid delaying the submission of your add/drop requests to the last minute at closing of add/drop.


(2) Maintenance Hours

The system is available around the clock except during the maintenance hours (07:30am - 09:30am) everyday in the morning.


(3) Students are responsible for their own studies at the University

You should seek academic advice, understand academic regulations and take appropriate enrollment actions.  Courses/Classes that are inappropriately enrolled may not be counted towards graduation requirements and will lead to failure to fulfill degree requirements.  De-registration of courses violating university regulations may take place after add/drop period.
