Registration is the official process of enrolling eligible learners in courses and programs offered by the School of Continuing Education (SCE). The Strategic Enrollment Management (SEM) Office is responsible for performing registration services.

Learners and organizations may register during periods specified by the SEM office or may take advantage of SCE’s online admissions and registration services.

For a learner to register for any learning event, the Student Identification Number (SID), which is printed for new learners on their Placement Examination Card (FormC7-2July15), is required. For continuing learners, their SIDs are printed on their previous term Schedule/ID card (FormI3-3July15) and their payment receipt.

Registration in course sections is on a first-come-first-served basis. Places in subjects and course sections cannot be guaranteed as registration is according to the available remaining places.

Learners are always encouraged to begin course registration as of the first week from the beginning of the current term until one day before the coming term is scheduled to begin. Learners, who register during that period, will benefit from a larger selection of course sections and subjects that suit their personal needs and schedules and will benefit from requesting a full refund in case they wish to drop a course (cf L6).

Continuing learners should not wait until the results of their current term courses are announced as they will forfeit the above advantages.

Learners delaying their registration until the first day of classes will forfeit all of the above advantages and will not be able to receive any course refund for courses dropped once the term began.

Learners who failed courses during the previous term are required to check their registration status with SEM office to amend their registration accordingly.

Full payment of registration fees is required at the time of registration. No individual learners or learners sponsored by third-party organizations, who have outstanding financial obligations to SCE, are allowed to attend classes on the first day of the term without settling the full payment of the tuition fees unless authorized by the SCE Finance Office.

SCE reserves the right to cancel courses and programs due to low enrollment or unexpected unavailability of qualified faculty members or facility.


Add and Change Course Schedule

The add and change course schedule period is determined and announced by the Strategic Enrollment Management (SEM) office through AUC platforms. It begins on the first day of the SCE term and extends to cover two sessions of each possible schedule pattern within the term, followed by one working day for all SCE scheduled offerings. In scheduled programs, learners are permitted to add courses or change in course sections provided space is available.

Learners dropping courses as of the first day of the term, even if their course does not meet on the first day of the term, are not entitled to any refunds. Exceptional cases are handled as per the announced Refund policy (cf L6). No courses are allowed to be dropped or added as well as no changes are allowed to be made in course schedules during the period of study, after the end of the add and change course schedule period.

Learners, who stop attending a course without notifying the SEM office, receive a letter grade of “S” as a final grade for the course (cf G7) and tuition fees are not refunded or credited to their accounts.

Withdrawal Policy

Learners have the right to withdraw from a course up until the sixth week of a 12-week term, the third week in a six-week term, or nine days in a four or third-week term provided they notify the Strategic Enrollment Management (SEM) Office. No withdrawals are allowed after that deadline.
A grade of "W" will be recorded in learners’ records (transcripts) and no course may be added in its place. Learners who withdraw forfeit all rights to a refund of any portion of the tuition fees (cf L6).
Failure to attend classes does not constitute a formal withdrawal from an SCE course. A withdrawal form has to be completed and returned to the SEM office for processing on the Management Information System (MIS).
A grade of "S" will be recorded for learners who stop attending after the withdrawal deadline or fail to notify the SEM office during the allowed period for withdrawal.
