Through the GSS, students can project their future graduation status with personalized information on their current status regarding major, double major and minor. If there are courses that overlap among major, double major and minor requirements, students should first specify for which requirement they hope to have the course acknowledged. Student’s graduation status is then automatically computed with a result that shows their graduation requirements, credits earned so far, credits yet to be earned and requirements fulfilled or failed.
Students can save the results of the simulation in five different scenarios according to their decision on overlapping courses.
“Before implementing the GSS, students had no choice but to manually calculate their credits to check their graduation status,” said Kang Hak-su, an official of the Registrar’s Office. “Students are now able to easily check their current status and project their graduation with each graduation status on their major, double major and minor.”
The Registrar’s Office launched the system after its successful beta testing period, which took place from June 17 to July 31. The feedback received from participants, which called for extended use to students of lower grade level, was reflected in the system – it was originally open only for those entering their seventh semester or higher, but starting this semester, students in their fifth semester or higher are also eligible to utilize the program.
The Registrar’s Office is also developing the Registration Simulation System, which is expected to be completed by next year. The Registration Simulation System will allow students to create a virtual graduation scenario by temporarily placing courses not yet taken into the current status. With the help of this program, students will be able to specifically plan for the selection of courses regarding their major and double major.
