A few years ago, CAU students crammed into the university around 4 or 5 in the morning in order to register for the courses. However, since many of them still could not register for courses after waiting for hours, CAU student council started “Computer-seat-distribution policy.” This was a great help for students but it proves that CAU students had many difficulties with registration. Now, here comes another issue of registration.
Before the start of the class, a certain event, buying and selling courses, is taking place not only in CAU but in most universities in Korea. Popular courses have attracted many students for a long time, but the advent of “black-market dealing of courses” has not been so long. The most popular courses are: online courses, easy-to-earn-good-grade courses, mandatory courses for graduation and so on. The price usually ranges from 30,000 won to 100,000 won per course. Registering and withdrawing from courses are available only through the university website. Thus, when the seller and the buyer access to the website simultaneously at the appointed time, the buyer registers for course as soon as the seller withdraws the course.
On September 4, 2012, the dean of academic affairs put up a post on Chung-Ang In, concerning about black-market dealing of courses. There is no problem in exchanging courses willingly during the period of course correction, but as mentioned in the media, exchanging courses through black-market dealing is inappropriate behavior instructively and will be punished severely according to school regulation. In 2010, CAU exposed a scandal of black-market dealing of courses, and exerted coercion on the student to offer a public apology in Chung-Ang In community. If there is any request of black-market dealing of courses or the dealing actually happens, students involved will receive severe disciplinary action though school regulation. Registering for courses is truly a difficult and backbreaking work, but CAU cannot expand the courses unlimitedly to solve the problem. CAU will maintain reasonable number of courses and make continuous improvement of system.
 
CAU students’ opinion
Pros
  •  CAU is off the track. Students do not want the improvement of the system. Resolving essential problem, lack of courses, is necessary.
  •  There is no doubt that black-market dealing is undesirable behavior. However, it is inevitable because students desperately need certain courses in order to reach graduation requirements.
  •  Most of courses are taken in minutes. There is no choice for students.
Cons
  •  Few students register for courses and sell them on purpose. Their actions should be under the control.
  •  Unfairness is created by wealth. Students who can afford money to buy courses will register for courses in the end.
  •  It is a matter of individual conscience. Students have to realize that rule-breaking behavior, in this case, black-market dealing of courses, is unscrupulous.
 
※Let’s look at other universities’ solutions
  • If too many students register for certain course, ○○ University in Korea provides waiting number to the students in the order. If a student with prior number does not register for the course in time, the next student will get the chance to register.
  • △△ University in the U.S gives priority to student with higher grades to register for courses. If a student got low grade in previous semester, he or she will wait until students with higher grades register for courses.
