ModReg@EduRec is the College’s module registration platform where students select and drop classes, tutorials and labs classes.

Please refer to the ModReg User Guide for Students to navigate the system. You may also contact Yale-NUS Registry if you have any questions.

Rule-Driven, Priority-based Allocation

ModReg@EduRec employs a rules-driven, priority-based engine to allocate modules based on each student’s curricular needs, seniority in the programme and module preferences. 

  • Rules-Driven: Curricular Needs
    This rule ensures priority is given to students who need a particular module to fulfil the curricular needs (eg. Major and Minor requirements etc). Please log on to myEduRec and generate the ‘My Graduation Audit’ report. This report provides an overview of your eligibility to graduate based on the academic plans declared, and modules that you have passed. Please refer here for the user guides.
  • Priority-Based: Student Seniority
    This rule ensures priority is assigned to students based on their year of study (eg. Year 1, Year 2, Year 3 and Year 4) since senior students have a more limited time than junior students in securing modules before graduating.
  • Priority-Based: Module Preferences
    In ModReg, students will be required to rank the modules they have selected in the order of their preference. This rule recognises that one student’s desire for a module may be different from another. Hence, priority is accorded to the student who ranks a module higher than another.

Priority Score is computed for each module selected by students based on the above factors.

Priority Score

Where demand for a selected module exceeds the available places, the Priority Scores of students seeking to read a particular module will be used to determine module allocation.

The Priority Score for a module selected by a student is computed based on the Priority Scoring Rubrics as follows:

Programme Requirements Category (in descending order of points) – An

  • UTown/USP modules
  • 1st Major modules
  • 1st Major modules
  • 2nd Major Specialisation modules
  • Faculty Requirement modules
  • 2nd Major modules
  • Restricted/Direct Minor modules
  • Unrestricted Elective/General Education modules
    *Only those that are highlighted in blue are applicable to Yale-NUS students.

Students’ Seniority (in descending order of points) – Bn

  • Year 4
  • Year 3
  • Year 2
  • Year 1

Rank Preference of Modules (in descending order of points) – Cn

  • Rank 1
  • Rank 2
  • Rank 3
  • Rank 4
  • Rank 5
  • Rank 6
  • Rank 7
  • Rank 8

Priority Score of module(s) = An x Bn x Cn

When students have the same Priority Score for a module and the demand exceeds the places available, tie-breakers are used to determine the final module allocation. The tie-breakers in descending order of consideration are:

  • Students who have not attained minimum workload
  • Student’s home faculty is module host faculty (Eg. If there are NUS students applying for Yale-NUS modules, priority will be given to Yale-NUS students)
  • Module feedback points (applicable to NUS modules only)
  • Random balloting

The above information is adapted from NUS ModReg website

As a guide, students are advised to plan their modules and timetables based on the following chronological considerations.

Degree Requirements Planning

Students may check on their degree requirements and progress using the following reports in EduRec.

1) Unofficial transcript via View my Transcript

2)  Graduation Progress Reports: My Graduation Audit Report’ ,My What-if Report

Module Planning

1) Module Offerings

As Singapore moves into Phase 2 of re-opening the economy after the end of the Covid-19 Circuit Breaker, we have been informed to still observe safe management practices both at NUS and Yale-NUS College. You may refer to https://www.yale-nus.edu.sg/covid-19/ for the latest Covid-19 updates at Yale-NUS College as well as on the NUS zoning policies.

Due to the need to maintain safe distancing protocols in the classrooms, some adjustments have been made to the Semester 1 AY2020/2021 timetable that was previously published, given that many of our standard classrooms are no longer able to hold the enrolment of the classes.

Information on module offerings and their revised timetable are available in Module Brief, categorised by module types, divisions, primary major affiliations and other major/minor affiliations.

Note on major/minor: If you plan to change your declared Major/Minor, please submit your request via myYaleNUS. The outcome of the change as approved by the respective Head of Studies must be received by Yale-NUS Registry at least 5 working days before the start of each round in order for the rule-based priority to take place in ModReg.

2) Module Pre-requisites

Kindly check the module pre-requisite, co-requisite or preclusion requirements before you register for the module. Please contact Registry for assistance or submit an appeal if:

a) You meet the pre-requisite in the form of an A-level or equivalent or in the form of module(s) taken during study abroad but encountered difficulty selecting the module.

b) You are currently taking a pre-requisite to the module that you are interested in reading in the coming semester but encountered difficulty selecting the module during Round 1 module registration.
Note: Upon release of your final examination results, if you have not passed the pre-requisite, you must drop that module and select another in Round 2 or Round 3 (unless you have received approval from the module instructor).

c) You did not meet the pre-requisite(s) of a module but have consulted the instructor for permission to register. You should forward the instructor’s email approval to Yale-NUS Registry for waiver of the pre-requisite in ModReg@EduRec to allow you to select the module.

Timetable Planning

1) Workload

The recommended workload is 20 MC per semester. However, students may register between 18 MC to 22 MC per semester. This workload includes Common Curriculum modules, Yale-NUS modules and NUS modules.

a) Overload

Students planning to overload (more than 22 MC) are required to seek formal approval from your Assistant Dean of Students (AD) using the Overload form. Please note, while students are strongly encouraged to plan and apply for overload early, for equity reasons, you will only be able to select the additional Yale-NUS or NUS elective module during Round 3.

Note for NUS CLS and YST modules: If you register for more than 18 MC of Yale-NUS modules in Round 1, you will not be pre-allocated the CLS or YSTCM module. Instead, you may drop an allocated module and register for the CLS or YST module via ModReg@EduRec during Round 2 or Round 3.

Overload for LAW Double Degree Programme (DDP) students: An overload for a Law DDP student would be defined as any module taken in excess of what is stated in your respective schedule of modules found here. The Faculty of Law has advised that Law DDP students are discouraged from overloading and should not read more than a total of 23 MC in the semester they are reading Law compulsory modules, due to the rigor of the Law curriculum.

For more information, please refer here.

b) Underload

Students planning to underload (less than 18 MC) are required to submit an appeal to your AD with supporting reasons using this form. For underloading with less than 14 MC, students need to further submit a petition to Committee on Academic Standards (CAS). The petition should be submitted well in advance of the “Add” module deadline so that you will still be in time to add a module in the event the appeal is unsuccessful.

Senior students who are in their graduating semester are allowed to register a minimum of 14 MC without the AD’s permission as long as they are on-track to meet graduation requirements.

You are advised to plan carefully as underloading may affect your graduation progress and ability to complete your degree within the stipulated candidature period.

2) Clashing class and exam timetable

You should register for modules that DO NOT clash with your class and exam timetables.

3) Early Registration

Module registration is conducted on a round-by-round basis. Students should start to participate actively from Round 1 in order to secure the modules that they are most interested in.

4) ModReg@EduRec “Reserved List”

Students are strongly encouraged to plan for reserves to supplement their module choices in their main list. These modules can be selected using the “Reserved List” function in ModReg@EduRec. For every module selected in the main list, students can select up to two reserve modules.

The above helps to allocate you to another module as early as possible, in the event you are not being allocated to the module of your first choice.
