Course enrollment procedure
Students who do not attend 1/3 of the class or more in a single semester will not be able to receive the credit for the course (and will be automatically graded “F” for the course).
Important Notes for Course Enrollment
- Always take into consideration the maximum number of credits per semester and your degree requirements when finalizing your course schedule. Discuss any queries with your academic advisor.
- Students are allowed to enroll in maximum of 18-19 credits per semester. Students are allowed to register 3 extra credits for achieving GPA above 3.75 in the previous semester.
- Students who earned less than 15 credits are not eligible to apply for academic honors. However, students who have completed at least 12 credits are allowed to apply for university scholarships.
Course Enrollment Tips
1.Check the course catalogue at the Yonsei Portal before course enrollment to check for any changes in course information.
2.Prepare 2-3 options for your course schedule, taking into consideration your interest, time frame and degree requirements.
3.Speed is the key for course enrollment, especially during the freshman year. If your computer is slow, we strongly recommend you to visit the school computer labs or other private PC cafes to conduct your course enrollment.

The course withdrawal period takes place within five weeks after semester begins. Check the notices at the UIC website or the Yonsei University website for the specific course withdrawal schedule.
- Students may withdraw from the course through the student portal during the course withdrawal period.
- Students are strongly recommended to consult their withdrawal with the academic advisors in advance, as the course they wish to withdraw may be a pre-major requirement.
Important Notes on Course Withdrawal
- From 2009, a withdrawn course will not be counted towards the GPA and will not appear on the transcript.
- Students cannot take another course as a replacement to a withdrawn course.
- Students who have withdrawn a course cannot apply for additional 3 credits and will be disqualified from the (highest/high) honor roll and highest/high honors award (at commencement) regardless of the student's overall GPA.
- Students must be enrolled in at least 1 credit after withdrawal.
- Students can withdraw P/NP courses, but they may not withdraw Volunteer Service & RC Self-Governing Activity 1 and 2.
- Students are still eligible for scholarships if they are still enrolled for over 12 credits after the withdrawal.
- Withdrawn courses will not appear on the transcript. However, if the students repeat the withdrawn course, the record for the previous withdrawal will remain at the Yonsei Portal.
Course Repeat Policy
- According to the UIC course repeat policy, students admitted in 2013 or thereafter may repeat a course up to 3 times (‘3-time opportunity’) until graduation with no additional approval.
- Common Curriculum courses (course category: CC) may not be repeated unless a student received ‘F’ for the course. If a student decides to repeat the course, the highest grade that the student can
- receive is an A0 (4.0) (Students cannot receive an A+).
- If a student fails (receive 'F') a mandatory course for degree requirement, the student may repeat the course without using the 3-time opportunity but previously received 'F' will also count towards the GPA.
- If a student enrolls in a course for two or more times, only the course credits and grade of the most recent course will be counted for fulfilling the degree requirements and GPA.
- Note that even if a student received 'F' for the most recent course, previously received grade will not be counted towards the degree requirements.
- Previously received academic warning will remain in effect even if a student’s GPA improves by repeating a course.
