Round Three

In this round, you will be able to make changes (add/drop) to your approved modules:

  1. Drop and select Yale-NUS modules via OurCORS.
  2. Select NUS modules.
  • To register for NUS elective modules in Round Three, you must complete and submit the Module Add/Drop Form to your respective Assistant Dean by 5.00pm on Friday, 18 January 2019. Late submissions will not be considered.  Applications for NUS CLS Language modules is closed for this round. The outcome of your application will only be known at the start of AY2018/19 Semester 2.
  • Students who may be interested in modules offered by the NUS University Scholars Programme can consider this list of modules here.
  • Students who may be interested in graduate modules offered by the Lee Kuan Yew School of Public Policy may refer to here.
  1. Drop your approved NUS elective module/NUS CLS language module by submitting the Module Add/Drop Form to your Assistant Dean. Given the extensive negotiations between the host Faculty/School and Yale-NUS to place you into NUS electives, you should think carefully before dropping these modules. Contact your Assistant Dean to discuss your reasons for wanting to do so.

Please also note the following:

  1. Overload: You will be able to add the additional module(s) during this Round if your Assistant Dean has approved your overload request from previous rounds. Otherwise, you can submit your overload request to your Assistant Dean in this Round. Once approved, you will be able to select the additional module(s) in OurCORS system.
  2. Underload: You are advised to plan carefully as under loading may affect your graduation progress and ability to complete your degree within the stipulated candidature period. All students are required to register at least 18 MC of workload in a semester. If you intend to underload in the semester, you are required to appeal to your Assistant Dean with supporting reasons. However, enrolling in less than 15MCs requires a petition to CAS (Committee on Academic Standards). The petition should be submitted well in advance of the “Add” module deadline so that you are still in time to add a module in the event that your appeal is not successful. Students who are in their graduating semester are allowed to register a minimum of 15 MC without Assistant Dean’s permission as long as they are on-track to meet graduation requirements.
  3. Special Seminar modules: These are 1MC short courses conducted by visiting Yale Professors during the week of 11 March 2019 to 15 March 2019. Priority will be given to Year 2 students to register for these Special Seminar modules during the first week of Round Three module registration. If there are still vacancies, these will be opened to the rest of the students in the subsequent two weeks of module registration.
  4. Independent Reading and Research (IRR) Module/Special Project in Science (SPS)/Independent Language Study & Research (ILSR) modules: If you are interested to read an independent study module, please refer to the registration forms. The deadline to submit your registration for an IRR,  SPS and ILSR module is 5pm on Friday, 18 January 2019.
  5. Module Pre-requisite: The same instructions as mentioned above in point 8 under Round One will apply. Reminder: If you have not passed a module in Semester 1 that is a pre-requisite to the module that you have been allocated for Semester 2 AY2018/19, you are not eligible to read the module and should proceed to drop the module during Round Three, unless otherwise approved by the instructor.
  6. Change of Major/Minor: If you plan to change your declared Major/Minor, please submit your request via myYaleNUS. The outcome of the change will be updated in the system once the appropriate approvals are received.
  7. Round Three Results:  As Round Three spans from Monday, 7 January 2019 to Friday, 25 January 2019, after you have selected a Yale-NUS module, you can check for the result via OurCORS the following week, on these dates after 6.00 pm: Friday, 11 January 2019  Friday, 18 January 2019 / Wednesday, 23 January 2019 / Friday, 25 January 2019.
