Students who have exceeded the maximum credit units permitted will not be allowed to register for further courses in subsequent semesters / terms except for (a) those pursuing a double major or double degree paying the extra credits; or (b) those who have been granted special approval to exceed the maximum credit limit due to change of home major. For details, students are advised to check with Academic Regulations and Records Office (ARRO) and / or their parent department.

If a student anticipates that he/she will exceed the maximum credit limit upon the enrolment of FS4005 (3 credit units), they should seek advice from the Co-operative Education Centre and his / her parent department before submitting the application.
