Class schedules for international students may vary according to whether they are in undergraduate programs, Chinese language programs, or graduate programs.
Undergraduate class schedules are very busy, as international students take all required courses with Chinese classmates. In addition to courses related to their major, students are required to fulfill general requirements such as art and physical education.
Chinese language classes are held Monday to Friday mornings, with afternoons open for studying and other activities. These classes are held in the Foreign Language College building, allowing students ample opportunities to practice their language skills with Chinese students.
Graduate class schedules vary more, with some programs scheduled on weekends or evenings to accommodate Chinese students with full-time jobs. Class attendance is expected, and good standing for scholarships and other privileges may be dependent on acceptable attendance.
