Students should understand the procedures described below and follow the appropriate steps.

  • First year students have to take IS100 course in the regular semester indicated in the table below unless they have already obtained an "EX" grade in a proficiency exam earlier. Before the interactive registration period, IS100 course is automatically added to the registered course list of the students who have not passed the course yet. They are registered to online classes.

  • The students who are in their second, third or fourth grade should register and complete the course as soon as possible.

Note that only first year students are allowed to drop the course to take it in the following semesters. Students that have finished their first year and have not received an "EX" or "S" grade will be registered to the IS100 course every semester until they pass it, and they will not be allowed to drop the course. Thus, it is recommended for students to complete the course immediately.
