Course Enrollment - Class Swap

(Path: MyCUHK Portal > CUSIS and MyStudy > Enroll > swap)

 

"Swap" is a very useful function. For example, enrolling in class A is your first choice, but this class is full and you enrol in class B which is your second choice. You intend to enrol in class A if seats are available and then drop class B. To do this, you can enrol in class B first and swap class A with class B. After the "swap" action, you will be placed on the wait list of class A and continue to be enrolled in class B. When you successfully enrol in class A, the system will help you to drop class B automatically.

Vacancy available for CCCC7004 
 
AAAA5004:    dropped*
BBBB6004:    on waitlist*
CCCC7004:   enrolled
(* AAAA5004 is automatically dropped by the system due to the swap request in Step 2. The student remains on the waitlist of BBBB6004 because the request to add in Step 1 is not yet cancelled.)
       
Step 4
 
Vacancy available for BBBB6004   AAAA5004:    dropped*
BBBB6004:    enrolled*
CCCC7004:   enrolled
(* This will result in enrollment in both  BBBB6004 and CCCC7004)

Result
Step 1
AAAA5005  
BBBB6005  AAAA5005:    enrolled
BBBB6005:    on waitlist
CCCC7005:    - 
       
Step 2
Enrolled CCCC7005   AAAA5005:    enrolled
BBBB6005:    on waitlist
CCCC7005:    enrolled*
(* When CCCC7005 is added, the system checks for time conflict between CCCC7005 and all enrolled courses. Since BBBB6005 is still being waitlisted, it is not counted as time conflict and CCCC7005 is enrolled successfully.) 
       
Step 3
Vacancy available for BBBB6005   AAAA5005:    enrolled
BBBB6005:    on waitlist*
CCCC7005:    enrolled
(* When system tried to enroll BBBB6005 for the student, time conflict between BBBB6005 and CCCC7005 is found. Thus, BBBB6005 cannot be enrolled.)
