Section Transfer Policy

To balance the number of students enrolled to each subsection, we make some arrangements with no intervention to schedules. That is, a student’s recitation section, if necessary, might be moved to some other one in the same session with the old one by the course coordination.

Section transfer policy in general is as follows:

  • Section transfer, if necessary, is made by course coordination after add-drop week.
  • Recitation hours remain the same, but recitation room and assistant are changed.
  • In some cases, main section for lecture hours may also be changed:
    For instance, a student in section 34 may be transferred to section 171 without altering the recitation session. Each student in this condition has the mutually exclusive option of attending to their former section or newly assigned section for the lectures (not recitations) only if their choice is in advance and not subject to any change. For more detail please check here.
  • Every student enrolled to course should check their section using SIS 117 in order to avoid the possible future confusion due to section transfer/change activity.
  • In case of closing some sections, students in these sections are transferred to suitable sections in accordance with this policy too.
  • Make sure you are attending to the right subsection! (Otherwise, your recitation activities, like quizes and attendance, would not be graded.)
