The Division of Curriculum is responsible for the issues related to the curriculums of the undergraduate programs, master programs (including in-service master programs), PhD programs, and other degree programs.
Courses are calculated by credits. One hour of extracurricular courses each week is one credit per semester; Two to three hours of practical training or experiment courses each week is on credit per semester.
Students of the bachelor’s program shall complete no less than 15 credits per semester in principle. Notwithstanding, students of the department requiring the study period for four years shall complete no less than 9 credits per semester in the fourth school year, and in the fifth school year in the case of students of the department requiring the study period for more than six years.
Students who take courses planned to be taught across two semesters (inclusive) or more, which are required to be taken in order in each semester, are not allowed to reverse the order in which the courses shall be taken, unless with the approval of the college (department, institute, continuing
education program and degree program) and the course instructor; if the student receives a failing grade in the previous semester, they may be allowed to continue taking the subject in the next semester upon approval of the college (department, institute, continuing education program and degree program) and the course instructor.
The sequential courses referred to in the preceding paragraph shall be defined and announced by each college (department, institute, continuing education program and degree program).

NYCU students’ applications for domestic cross-college course taking shall be approved by the heads of the students’ departments (institutes), and the students shall complete the course registration procedures. NYCU will not accept the credits and transcripts from NYCU students who take courses from other colleges without approval.
Students are not allowed to attend two subjects conflicting with each other in the same session. Otherwise, the grades of both subjects will be calculated based on the X grade, and the students have to integrate the course timetable and adopt flexible teaching sessions, unless the organizing unit confirms that no conflict with any course actually exists.
If the student retakes the course and receives a grade no less than D, for the course taken by them previously, they may apply to take courses conflicting with each other, provided that they may only take the course conflicting with another course for no more than one session per week in a semester.
- The course withdrawal application, if any, shall be filed no later than two weeks prior to the semester exams prescribed in the relevant semester calendar. The summer course application, if any, shall be filed prior to the semester exams
