TIPS ON COURSE ENROLLMENT

  1. Each student MUST attempt to enroll within the SAME tab/ window for course enrollment and suggested to make a SINGLE access to MyCUHK . Timout will occur after 20 minutes idling.
  2. Check quota and vacancy of all related subjects through "Teaching Timetable by Subject/Department" and validate your selected classes (in shopping cart) before Course Enrollment Day.
  3. In each enrollment attempt, avoid enrolling >1 section of the same course and minimize the no. of classes.
  4. Except students admitted with Advanced Standing or admitted to Senior-year Places and those of specified major programmes, all new students will be pre-assigned a course code PHED1000 under CUSIS. These students MUST replace PHED1000 by using “swap” function to register a required Physical Education course listed in the teaching timetable. New students admitted with Advanced Standing or admitted to Senior-year Places may select a required PHED course in either 1st term or 2nd term of their first year of attendance, therefore they will not be pre-assigned with PHED1000. A maximum of 1 Physical Education class (prefix: PHED) can be put in the shopping cart. The enrolled must be dropped before adding another one.
  5. For undergraduates, each student can enroll 2 PHED courses in the whole curriculum. The extra PHED course enrolled will be removed without notice.
  6. For undergraduates in each academic term, a maximum of 2 University GE classes (prefix: UG) can be put in the shopping cart. The enrolled (including waitlisted) must be dropped before adding another one.
  7. Please note the restrictions on the number of courses to be submitted in each enrollment attempt.
