Module Registration

Module Registration

Registration of Modules

This is the period when students select the modules they would like to read in the upcoming trimester.  Students are required to register for modules (at least one module) in the Module Registration System (MRS) via Student Portal during their designated window period, which is determined by the programmes they belong to and level of study.  However, students of some programmes may have their modules pre-registered by the University, depending on the conditions set by the Programme Directors.

If a student fails to register any module during the registration window period, an appeal may be made to SIT. For students under SEEMS+ programme, a late registration fee penalty is charged at S$107.00 (inclusive of GST) based on DigiPen’s policy.

Students will be informed of module registration matters via their SIT or OU# (for SEEMS+) email address.

Add/Drop period

The first two weeks at the start of a trimester is deemed as the Add/Drop period.  Students are allowed to make final changes to their timetables without penalty and financial implications during this period.  Modules that are dropped during this period will not appear in the transcript.  This period is not applicable for new students in their first trimester.   

Dropping of modules is to be done either through MRS; or in the case of SEEMS+ students via DigiPen’s registration system; or approach the Programme Officer-in-Charge for the paper work.

An academic penalty and fee will be imposed on students who drop module/s after the Add/Drop period.  Table A summarizes the implications.
