【Important Notice】

1. Please note that credits earned at other graduate schools can be transferred up to a total of 15 credits and up to 6 credits per semester. Yonsei GSIS students may take courses and transfer credits from other Yonsei graduate schools, but this does not include special graduate schools. Credits may only be transferred from the general graduate schools and professional graduate schools.

2. If you are a student who wishes to enroll for a 5th semester and over, you are required to take at least one course.

3. Retaking a course is allowed only if a student received an "F." However, if another "F" grade is given for the same course after retaking it, the student will be removed from school register. The retaken course will be indicated with "R" and the previous "F" will be replaced by the new grade acquired.

4. If you would like to receive credit for doing an internship, please register at the CDC office. Without doing so, you will not receive credit.

6. There may be courses that were listed under a certain field of concentration from a previous semester that have been changed to a different field of concentration in this semester. However the course designated under a particular field during a particular semester is how the course will be credited for the graduation requirement. The change will not be applicable when determining a student's coursework.

7. Students should be responsible for keeping track of, and satisfying their own graduation requirements. The GSIS office can provide only academic advice, and cannot be held responsible for individual student decisions on course selections. The official school regulations and the course listings serve as the standard, and students should refer to these documents for final confirmations.
