Academic Information for Visiting Students


Class Enrollment
•General visiting students include language students and subject-study students. Language students refer to visiting students attending Chinese language training courses at PKU School of Chinese as a Second Language. Subject-study students refer to visiting students attending undergraduate courses at PKU departments/schools.
•Visiting students must register at the International Students Division every semester within the designated date and select courses in accordance with the Regulations for Visiting Students Selecting Courses. 
Language students are arranged into suitable classes according to the results of their online self-assessment on Chinese proficiency prior to arrival and the face-to-face interview upon registration.
• Senior visiting students and research scholars do not take any courses. They conduct research regarding a specific subject with a supervisor from the accepting department/school.

Attendance and Excused Absences
• Attendance and participation are mandatory for all lectures, tests, and other academic activities. If you miss any academic activities, you must ask for an approval for excused absences in advance. Senior visiting students and research scholars need to have their absences approved by both their supervisor and the dean of their department/school. Subject-study students should ask for approval from the professor(s) of the course(s) for their absences. Language students should ask for approval from the School of Chinese as a Second Language for their absences.
• Visiting students who have accumulated over a month of excused absences within one semester will be considered withdrawn from the university. Absentees without approval will be warned or even dismissed from the university in accordance with related PKU rules and regulations.
• General visiting students who fail to attend over one-third of their classes are not eligible to receive a certificate of achievement.

Extension of Studying Period/Transfer to Another Department
• Students will be considered for an extension of study upon request. The request will be approved by the International Students Division based on the students’ previous academic records and attendance.
• After one semester's study, general visiting students who meet the requirement of having completed at least one year of undergraduate study at their own university may apply for a transfer to another department in the following semester. The request will be approved by the Internatioanl Students Division based on the student's previous academic records and attendance.
• The application for extension/transfer is usually in May and November. Students should pay the processing fee for their extension of study period.

Procedures before Leaving: Transcript and Certificate
• When finishing all the courses, students should come to the International Students Division with their student ID and apply for transcripts and certificate. Senior visiting students, research scholars and dropouts must complete required departure procedures before applying for a certificate/transcript.
• Students will receive a final official transcript and certificate upon completion of their studies. The first copy is for free. For more copies, the student should pay the necessary fees.
• During their studies, however, students will not receive any official certificate/transcript but may inquire about grades. If formal transcript/certificate are needed, they should pay for the copy/copies.
