by Vickey Hsu How did your midterms go? Did you get a result that you are satisfied with?Do not stress if you failed or did not receive a good result. Now you may apply for course-reduction if you have less than average marks. Students meeting one of the following conditions for failed credits on midterm exams can apply for post-midterm course-reduction. 1. Those who failed less than one-third of their credits on midterm exams may apply to drop one course. 2. Those who failed more than one-third but less than half of their credits on midterm exams may apply to drop no more than two courses. 3. Those who failed half of their credits on midterm exams may apply to drop no more than three courses. After confirming that you are eligible, please follow the application procedure below: In the Student Information System, under Course Information, select Post-midterm Course Withdrawal. Then check the course(s) to be dropped, and click on ‘confirm’ to submit the application. Please note that 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. After the course-reduction application is approved, no cancellation or request of any revisions to the application will be 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 Dec 3rd, 2013. Please double check online.
