As per the standards outlined in part 2, lecturers in charge of all units are listed in the syllabus and the rubrics.*7 Likewise students wishing to improve their learning outcomes should consult them, the lecture plans and grading criteria, and ask any relevant questions before their lectures, seminars, etc.
All syllabuses and the like can be consulted on the following website.
During the semester, both the student and the lecturers will utilize the syllabuses and the rubrics. Moreover, in addition to confirming the grades and GPA awarded during the previous semester, the students will formulate new study plans on the basis of the relevant advice and guidance received from the lecturers. Should they withdraw from the unit during the semester, they will receive a grade of 'F', which will be reflected in their GPA. Therefore, it is necessary to carefully consider the contents of the syllabus and the rubrics before enrolling.
However, if there is a legitimate reason to be dissatisfied with the unit (such as the contents of the unit differing from the expected ones, or conferring insufficient knowledge), it is possible to withdraw from the unit before its census date without incurring a penalty.
In this case, withdrawal will not be treated like dropping out, and the student's GPA will not be affected. It is possible to withdraw from core units, electives (excluding intensive courses), etc. However, it is not possible to withdraw from intensive courses without incurring a penalty.
However, if students are unable to continue their studies due to issues beyond their control (such as disease or adverse personal circumstances), it may be possible to withdraw from a unit after the census date without incurring a penalty. In this case, it is necessary to consult the relevant lecturers or academic advisors to obtain a permission.
Please consult the annexed table(Japanese Only) for census dates.
