Approvals should be sought when: Students do not meet the course pre-/co-requisites (“requisite waiver” approval). Students wish to enroll in courses which require “instructor consent” approval. UG students wish to enroll in PG courses (or vice versa) (“cross career” approval). UG students wish to seek for credit overload. Approvals should NOT be sought if: Students are already on waitlist of the course. Students have taken, or are concurrently taking a course listed under “Course Exclusion”. When / How to request for approval? Approval requests can be submitted from the start of the validation period until the add/drop deadline. Please see the demo here. After getting the approval, students are advised to perform validation again to ensure the status shows “OK to Add”.

21 Check Waitlist Position
In Enroll – My Class Schedule Select (tick) “Show Waitlisted Classes” and click filter See “Waitlist Position” * Due to complicated system logic behind the waitlist engine, queue positions displayed for a course with multiple component may not be updated and synchronized on a real-time basis Note: For courses that have multiple components, only the queue position of the first component in the sequence of Lecture  Lab  Tutorial will be displayed*. If you remain in the same waiting position for a long time without any movements… It is possible that: 1) your waitlisted class has a time conflict with one of your enrolled class ) your term enrollment limit would be exceeded if this class is enrolled. Under these circumstances, when places are available, the system will assign them to other students in the queue and your waiting position will remain the same. Back to Class Enrollment Scenarios

Students are recommended to cancel a waitlist request if they no longer wish to enroll for the waiting class. Will a dropped course be shown in my academic records? Course(s) dropped during the add/drop period will only be recorded in the SIS but not be printed on students’ transcripts. Do all courses have the same add/drop deadline? Irregular UG courses may have different add/drop deadline, e.g. courses that only have classes in the first half of the term may have an earlier add/drop deadline. Some PG courses have an extended drop period (also applicable to UG students enrolled to the respective PG course), please refer to the class details.

24 FAQ: Course Auditing How to audit a course? (Important Notes)
Please refer to the approval request slide for demo. Students should NOT be enrolling or waitlisting for the course at the time when they submit the audit request. If the class is full at the time of the approval, the audit request will be cancelled automatically. To check your audit status, go to “My Class Schedule” and see “Grading”: Can I change a normal enrollment into audit, and vice versa? To change a normal enrollment to audit, students must drop the course and submit the audit approval request again. To change from audit to a normal enrollment, students should drop the course and enroll again. In case the class is full, students may approach the course instructor for special assistance. What is the obligation as an audit student? Audit students will not earn any grades or credits from the course. Please refer to UG Regulations (Clause 5.9) or PG Regulations (Clause 5.4) for general guideline or consult the course instructor for course-specific arrangements. HOME
