"Registration for courses" is mandatory to attend courses and earn credits. If you attend a course without registration, or make a mistake in the registration procedures, academic credits will not be authorized.

To avoid such trouble, you are encouraged to participate in the explanatory meeting for course registration held every academic year, and follow instructions for course registration.

(1) Selection of Fields

By the end of the first semester in the first-year of enrollment, students select a "field" through "Introduction of Computer Science and Engineering," one of the courses in Computer Fundamental Courses, etc. Then students select a "field" taking into consideration their curriculum advisors' opinions.Changing fields within a specified period of the semester is permitted. However, approval from the relevant curriculum advisor or graduation thesis supervisor is required.

Advice regarding course registration from class mentors and graduation thesis advisors shall also be provided to students as necessary.

(2) Course Registration Planning

Students are required to formulate a course registration plan for all the courses they plan to take by their graduation, taking into account fields they have chosen and academic interests, and check the plan from time to time. Upon registration for courses, pay attention to relations between courses based on advice from your curriculum advisers. 128 academic credits are necessary for graduation, and this should also be taken into account for course registration.

When you register for courses, it is very important to take into account courses you plan to take in the NEXT semester. Courses registered according to course registration plans shall be given priority upon registration.

(3) Selection of Courses

Courses to be registered for each semester shall be determined based on the course registration plan described above.

  1. 1st-Year Students: Regardless of fields that students have chosen, students are required to register for "Strongly Recommended Courses".

  2. 3rd-Year Students and Higher:

    Courses for which students should register differ corresponding to individual fields that students have selected. Courses should be registered for, based on registration models for fields. Students must make appropriate decisions regarding course registration referring to University Regulation on the Completion of University of Aizu Studies, syllabus, class schedule, etc.

  3. Notes for students of all years

    (a) Students must make efforts to acquire academic credits within the standard year of completion for the courses.

    (b) Regarding Upper Division Courses, select "Field-Recommended Courses" of YOUR FIELD.

    (c) Please note that the number of academic credits earned only for strongly recommended courses and field recommended courses would NOT suffice for the number of credits required for graduating from the University; 128 credits.

(4) Course Registration Procedures

Complete the following procedures by the designated deadline:

  1. The first semester of students' first year

    Courses (other than Strongly Recommended Courses) must be registered for by submission of the "Course Registration Form" to the Academic Affairs Section of the Student Affairs Division.

  2. After the second semester of students' first year

    Individual students are required to enter necessary information for registration of courses on the Academic Administration System, using computer on campus. (Detailed instructions will be announced separately.)

  3. After the first semester of students' third year

    It is necessary for the supervisor to approve the course registration.
  4. Notes for students of all years

    (a) After the designated period for cancellation of registered courses and addition of courses to register for, changing of entries is not permitted, in principle. Therefore, students should consult with the Academic Affairs Section of the Student Affairs Division regarding unclear points in advance. In the case of the 3rd- and 4th-year students assigned to the laboratory, approval of the supervisor will also be required at the time of cancellation.

    (b) For some English Language Courses and Strongly Recommended Courses, students will be assigned to a certain class. For these courses, instructors and classrooms are designated, and students must register for the assigned classes in principle. Please keep in mind that there are possibilities that the course may be canceled in cases where students register for classes other than those assigned to them.

    (c) The maximum number of credits for registration is 28 credits per semester and 56 credits per academic year, excluding credits from optional courses, teaching profession courses, intensive courses during vacation periods and the graduation thesis course.

(5) Confirmation of Course Registration

Be sure to confirm if your course registration is correct through the Academic Administration System.

Before finalization of course registration, students may be individually asked to visit the Academic Affairs Section for consultation regarding course registration. Students should pay close attention to e-mails, etc. for these types of notices.

After the first semester of students' third year, registration will be confirmed by having the supervisor approval the contents registered by the student (registration will not be finalized unless approved). Please consult with your supervisor on your plan in advance, and promptly report it to your supervisor as well as request approval when the student has taken registration. In case of problems, please consult the Student Affairs Division urgently.

(6) Restrictions on Course Registration

  1. You are not accepted for the following courses:

    (a) Courses which you have not registered for
    (b) Courses for which academic credits you have already earned
    (c) Courses overlapping in the same class period
    (d) Courses designated for third- and/or fourth-year students if students did not fulfill promotion requirements

  2. Students should pay attention to other courses as well, since there are other cases where registration is restricted due to the number of teachers or the number of terminals in computer exercise rooms. Also, there may be overcrowding courses due to the unbalanced number of students in each field. In such a case, registration will be adjusted. So be sure to check related announcements sent via e-mail or posted online. You cannot register for courses for which capacity has already been filled.

  3. When courses which the class capacity exceeds, students permitted to take the courses will be selected based on the relevant instructor's policies, their standard years of completion for the courses, assignment of classes, choice, preferred field, course registration plans, number of credits, score of TOEIC etc.

  4. Students must NOT register for courses exceeding 28 credits per semester and 56 credits per year, excluding those of optional courses, teaching profession courses, intensive courses during vacation periods and the graduation thesis course.

(7) Retaking of Courses

If you fail in a course, you can take it again next time. However, since most of our courses accompany exercise sessions, there is a possibility that registration for courses will be limited due to the capacity of exercise rooms, etc. It is preferable to register for courses according to the courses' standard years for registration and earn academic credits in a well-planned manner.

(8) Additional Registration for Courses

In cases where students could not register for courses according to their plan due to adjustment of the number of students to the capacity for the courses after the course registration period, they will be allowed to additionally register for other courses within the designated period.

(9) Cancellation of Registered Courses

Students can cancel courses having been already registered for by taking procedures within,the designated period following the start of classes.

Do not keep being absent from those courses without applying for cancellation. Otherwise, grade for those courses will be "F", and students fail the courses, and GPA (refer to "Examinations and Assessment of Academic Performance (3) GPA") will drop. This will bring disadvantages at job-seeking activities, application for scholarship programs, application for tuition exemption, etc.
