Before the start of the validation period, ARR pre-enrolls students to the required courses or the courses designated by the School Advising Office / Program Office that the students belong.
2. When & How to check my pre-enrollment result?
From the start day of the validation period and onwards, you may access the Student Center to check your pre-enrollment result. The Student Center can be accessed via Student Intranet (https://hkust.edu.hk/stu_intranet/).
3. Will I be pre-enrolled to all my required courses?
Yes, except if
1.)you have failed / not taken the pre-requisite of the required course(s), or
2.)you have already taken the course in previous terms, or
3.)the curriculum specifies that you can choose one out of a few courses to fulfill the requirement. In this case you may enroll your chosen course during the enrollment period.
4. What if I need to repeat a required course, or have not taken some required courses in previous term(s)?
You need to enroll the courses by yourself during the enrollment period. Take note that UG students can only repeat course in case of failure, they cannot repeat a course to improve grades.

Dropping a pre-enrolled course is strongly discouraged as it may affect your academic progress. But if you have strong reasons to do so, you may seek such approval during the validation period. Refer FAQ “Validation Question 7” for details. Please note that if you drop a pre-enrolled course, the pre-enrollment may not be arranged for you again in future terms.
