Rules and Regulations

Attendance

Please note that Yonsei University has a strict attendance policy, as any student who is absent from a course for more than 1/3 of the semester will be issued an "F" regardless of his/her achievement in the course.
Please check the course syllabus or ask your professor to find out the attendance policy for each course.

Code of Conduct & Dismissal

Students are expected to be responsible, honest, and considerate of others. The OIA reviews the following: actions of students charged with harassment, fraud, infringing on the rights of others, violating the rules and regulations of any University department; behaving inappropriately toward University faculty, staff, or fellow students; the unauthorized use of University facilities or equipment, including computer resources; the alteration or falsification of University records; the unauthorized recording, sale, or purchase of lectures or other instructional materials; destroying or defacing University property; misrepresenting themselves or their University affiliation; and disturbing orderly academic functions and processes. Please note that using lectures or other instructional materials for commercial purposes and defacing University property is strictly prohibited. Any behavior disturbing orderly academic functions and processes will not be accepted. Please be advised that Yonsei University has the right to dismiss any student it deems detrimental to the program. In this case, or in the event of a withdrawal for any reason prior to, or during the program, or if students fail to maintain adequate academic standards or if their behavior is not in keeping with University standards or the laws of Korea, such as illegal drugs and illegal employment, no refund is possible. Any academic regulations not stated here will follow those of Yonsei University, and the laws of Korea.

  • Students failing to register for the required credits during the designated period will be dismissed.
Course Add and Drop (Final Chance to Register for Courses)

Course change (Drop / Add / Confirmation) is available only through the Undergraduate Course Enrollment menu on the Yonsei Portal Site.
(http://portal.yonsei.ac.kr/main/indexe.jsp)

Students can refer to their final course registration status, not only during the registration period but also through the Portal's Academic Management System information after the time period. Students MUST print out their Final Course Registration results, as the Study Abroad Center will not issue a student's course enrollment confirmation certificate.

Course Withdrawal (Final Chance to Drop Courses)

Course withdrawal is only possible through the Portal System.
The withdrawn course will still be shown on the course registration system, but the withdrawn course will be deleted before the official transcript issuance. The minimum course load of 9 credits must be maintained even after your course withdrawal has been made.

  • Go to the English Portal: http://portal.yonsei.ac.kr/main/sso/indexe.jsp
  • Go to Academic Information System (Degree Programs) > Academic Management System
  • Course > Course Enrollment > Apply for Withdrawal
  • Select the class you are going to withdraw from and confirm.
  • Please double check withdrawal results by going to Course > Course Enrollment Status.
Course Evaluation Online

During the designated period in the last month of each semester, students need to complete the on-line Course Evaluation for their courses through the Portal System. It is mandatory in order to check grades online. Only students who finish on-line course evaluation can check their grades during the designated period.(There is no course evaluation for KLI and graduate courses.)

Online Grade Check / Transcript Issuance and Additional Request

*Once Final Grades are released they cannot be changed.
But, if your grades do not match what your professor has told you, please contact the professor of the course as soon as possible before the end of the grade check period.

Grading Policies

For the final grade assessment, professors will take attendance, class participation, assignments, and the results of any examinations into consideration. Grades are issued on an A+, A0, and A- through F scale, and will be recorded permanently.
After the grade check and correction period, changing grades is not permitted under any circumstances.

  • Students caught cheating will receive an 'F' grade.
