Curriculum and Courses


Curriculum Guidelines

  1. As an exchange student, you may take up to 8 courses per semester. At least 2 courses each semester must be hosted by the program/college in which the student is enrolled.
  2. You must go to scheduled classes and attend mid-term and final examinations. Students may not request an instructor to reschedule an examination for any reason.
  3. If a student does not complete their exchange studies or does not take the final examination, FJCU will notify the government and the student’s home institution. The student’s enrollment status will be cancelled and FJCU will not issue any transcripts or records of study to the student.

Course Registration

  1. It is highly likely that you may not be able to register in every course you initially intended to take because the class is full; there is a scheduling conflict; the course does not open; facilities are limited; you are missing a prerequisite; you do not satisfy course requirements, etc.
  2. Fu Jen students can register in courses before classes start. As an exchange student, you can only register afterward, so it's possible that some courses will be full.
  3. You'll have to consult with the secretary of your program at FJCU before registering for courses.
  4. Please read course regulations and pay attention to registration deadlines. If you have any questions, please ask your buddy or the secretary of your program for help.
  5. You must receive the signature/stamp of the instructor and the program hosting a course before registering. If you're interested in registering in a general education course, you'll have to first receive a course registration slip from the instructor.
  6. You can register in courses hosted outside of your program under the following conditions:
    • The course accepts students from other programs, and there are spaces available and
    • You receive signed authorization from the instructor, the program hosting the course, and your program at FJCU

Course Information

  1. You can look up course information from the previous academic year/semester. For example, if you'll be here on exchange for the Fall 2018 Semester, you can look up courses that were offered in Fall 2017. However, please note that courses are subject to change every semester.
