Course Selection & Add/Drop

Most of the programmes require students to select courses for the whole academic year via the internet, normally in mid-August each year. Students may also add/drop courses for each term during the add/drop period, normally the first 2 weeks of each academic term.


If your programme requires you to perform course registration via the internet, please login MyCUHK Portal to select courses in CUSIS (Chinese University Student Information System).


Announcements on course selection are made via @Link Student Email System. Please check your @Link mailbox regularly or arrange to forward the emails (FAQs - General) to your personal account.

Newly-admitted Students

For newly-admitted students who have settled payment of tuition fee and completed online registration, you may use the "Online Registration Login ID" and "Online Registration Password" to login MyCUHK Portal to perform course selection during Course Registration Period.


Newly-admitted students who are provisionally registered (i.e. with outstanding admission conditions) can only perform course selection but NOT add/drop via CUSIS unless they have fulfilled all the condition(s) prescribed in the admission notification.


For details, please refer to the "Information for Newly-admitted Students" section. 

Course selection/pre-assigned courses

Some programmes may pre-assign courses for their students. However, not all such programmes allow students to drop the pre-assigned courses via the internet. If you need to drop the pre-assigned courses but cannot do so via the internet, please complete Form CS-1 and return it to the Programme/Graduate Division for further process. 

Course Register

After the course selection period and the add/drop period, your course registrations will be forwarded to the Graduate Division for approval. Normally, the approval process would take about 1.5 week. The course register during this period is NOT YET finalized. After all the course registrations have been confirmed, the Graduate School will notify students concerned via mass email, and notices will be put up on the Graduate School homepage when the tentative/final course register are available.
