2020  Winter Session Registration Guidelines 

 2020 Winter Session classes will be conducted through online and non-face-to-face lectures to prevent the spread of COVID-19. Nevertheless, it is inevitable that some classes with laboratories, practice, or studio requirements may be conducted face-to-face.

Students staying abroad should prepare for face-to-face classes by checking the self-isolation standards and periods at the Centers for Disease Control (1339) before registering for Winter Session classes.

* Courses are subject to rescheduling. For the most updated course schedule and syllabi, please visit the website at http://portal.yonsei.ac.kr regarding Regular Yonsei Winter Session and http://winter.yonsei.ac.kr regarding WAY(Winter Abroad at Yonsei).

* Maximum course load: Totally 7 credits for Regular Yonsei Winter Session and WAY * Course withdrawal is not allowed. * The winter session credits will be added to the cumulative GPA and the degree requirement credits.

* Course repeat:

- The repetition of the courses taken in Fall 2020 is not allowed.
- Students cannot repeat a regular semester course with a WAY course if the course code is different.

* Course enrollment:

- Students may enroll for both Regular Yonsei Winter and WAY session.    But  only 7 credits can be obtained by both programs. 

It is the responsibility of each student to check the Yonsei University and WAY websites for further updates and details.
