Course Re-registration Procedures

Step 1: Check courses under your study programme

You should check the programme regulations of your study programme (Course Enrolment > click the appropriate credit system of programme regulations) to ensure the courses you wish to select will be counted towards the award as fulfilling the graduation requirements. Alternatively, you should make use of the online student service ‘Course Choice Advisement’ via MyHKMU.

Step 2: Check courses to be currently offered

A list of distance learning courses currently on offer can be found on this page with the provisional class schedule of the courses as well, so that you can check if the class sections selected have timetable clashes.

To plan your study, the University encourages students to check the course presentation schedule and the offering term on this page (choose the credit system > click ‘Future Term(s)’).

Some courses may have advisory/mandatory pre-requisites, or enrolment requirements. To learn more about the content of a course currently on offer  (e.g. study contents, learning supports, assessments, pre-requisites etc.), you can check its course description on this page by clicking the course title of the concerned course.

Step 3: Start your course registration

Most registrations will normally be processed on a rolling basis. Once the quota is exhausted, further applications will not be accepted.

Before starting your course registrations, you should note the following in addition to the regulations stipulated in the Student Handbook .

  • All course fees and/or application fee paid are not refundable nor transferable, unless the course(s) you registered is/are cancelled by the University. 
  • To comply with the requirements of the HKSAR Government's Office of the CEF, the University will not offer any course fee discounts or reduction to students applying for 'CEF reimbursable courses'. For the Senior Citizen Card Scheme discount, you may read the online FAQ (Q21) for details.
  • The University does not forbid its students to study in another institution at the same time (except for non-local applicants whose student visa is sponsored by the University). However, you should check with your current institution if it has any restriction on 'double registration'.
  • Persons living overseas are welcome to pursue studies at the University through distance learning. However, you should read the important notes of the online FAQ (particularly Q25) before submitting your course registrations.
  • The University reserves the right to make any necessary changes to the programme/course, or cancel a programme/course/class if there is an insufficient number of enrolments. In every case, the University will make every effort to minimize the inconvenience caused and will give notice to the affected students of any such changes as early as possible.

Step 4: Log in to online registration system

For continuing/current students, please log in to MyHKMU to begin your course registration.

Go to MyHKMU > click “your programme” link > under “Classes & Enrolment” > Enrolment > e-Registration (see ‘User Guide for Online Registration’ here)

Step 5: Select courses and class sections

Step 6: Process payment of course fees of the selected course(s) to complete the registration procedures

For online application, the payment receipts can be viewed and downloaded when the payment has been received and confirmed by the University, usually available in 3-7 working days depending on the bank processing time after successful transaction. Receipts will be available for download by two weeks before the next term admission/course registration starts. No receipt will be re-issued.
