by Florrie Lin Did you get good grades on your midterm examinations? If you are under pressure from poor grades and would like to reduce some courses, you can consult with your Class Advisor and apply for course-reduction online from May 6 to 10. In accordance with “Post-midterm Course-reduction Application Notice”, those who fail more than one-third of their credits on midterm exams may apply to drop one course; those who fail more than one-third but less than half of their credits on midterm exams may apply to drop no more than two courses; those who fail half of their credits on midterm exams may apply to drop no more than three courses. The dropped courses will be marked in blue. If there is any mistake, you can recheck the course(s) and resubmit the application for correction within the application period. Once the course-reduction application is approved, neither cancellation nor request of any revisions to the application are accepted under any conditions. No refunds are made for the courses being dropped. The result of course drop will be posted on your course schedule in the Student Information System on May 15th, 2013. Please double check online. For further questions, please contact the Registrar’s Section, Graduate Education Section, and Taoyuan Academic Affairs Section. The deadline is 16:00 pm on May 10.
