Ewha Registrar team has carried out a mock course registration on Oct. 30 to 31 and announced that they will renew the registration portal system to alleviate previous problems with course registration.
The most noticeable innovation of the portal system was the convergence of various websites. Students were not only able to check and make changes to their course registration but also try out graduation simulations, search the class syllabus and open courses on the same portal system. A timetable simulation was added as well.
In addition to the renewal of the portal system, there are two major changes that are to be applied next year: the “waiting list system” and the “cancelation delay system”.
The waiting list system assigns numbers to students on a first-come, first-served basis for those who have registered a course that has reached its full capacity. Students no longer need to waste time attempting to click and register a course as the priority will be given in number order.
If a student cancels a course with full capacity and leave a residual seat, the next student in line will receive a message informing that the waiting list course has been registered. However, the waiting list will reset at the course registration day for each grade.
For the delayed cancelation system, when there are remaining seats from those who cancelled the registration, students cannot immediately click on the course and register it but need to wait for a certain period of time. This system was created to prevent non-disciplinary behavior, such as buying and selling lectures among students.
