Course Registration

About Course Registration

Before you begin your studies at Yonsei University, there is an important process that all students have to complete. Yonsei's course registration follows a bidding system consisting of two rounds (a bidding round and a wait list/waiting number round) and a drop/add period. Students must plan their desired courses and some secondary choices, as enrollment in some courses can be competitive. Be sure to check the course catalog early and confirm, if necessary, with your home institution if the classes you wish to take, and your second choices, are appropriate for your requirements.

What is a "bidding system"?

To alleviate competition and address the ethics of a first-come first-serve registration system, Yonsei began implementing a school-wide bidding system for course registration. It is highly recommended that all students familiarize themselves with the nature of the system and plan their bids prior to the registration period. The pdf below is a guide to understanding the course enrollment process at Yonsei.
