CHIN Course Enrollment Information
Students who have never taken a CHIN course
All students who have never taken a CHIN (Chinese Language) course at UCSD, MUST participate in a short informal placement interview in order to receive authorization to enroll in a CHIN course. Placement Interviews are applicable to students who have AP Chinese and/or SAT II Chinese exam scores as well as those who have no Chinese background.
Once a placement test has been completed and authorization, the STUDENT IS RESPONSIBLE FOR ENROLLING in the appropriate CHIN course on Tritonlink WebReg. An authorization is not an enrollment nor does a placement interview guarantee approval or enrollment in a CHIN course.

Students already enrolled in a CHIN course
- Keep in mind that the ADD COURSE deadline during regular quarters (Fall, Winter, Spring) is Friday of Week 2. Plan ahead accordingly.
- It is very unlikely that students may join a course after the Week 2 add deadline. By this point in the quarter, enough absences will have accumulated to affect the student's final course grade adversely. Under extreme special circumstances, a student may join the course past the add deadline only at the discretion of the lecturer. The Chinese Studies Program cannot override the lecturer decisions.
- Students are not permitted to take more than one CHIN LANGUAGE course per quarter.
Students who do not know which category they are and want to take a CHIN course
Chinese Studies Program Policies
- Keep in mind that DEADLINE to add a course via WebReg each quarter (Fall, Winter, Spring) is Friday of Week 2.
- It is very unlikely for students to join a CHIN course after the Week 2 add deadline, unless you have been attending. If it is Week 3 and you want to enroll, you will need an ADD CARD. The instructor will need to sign the ADD CARD and then you will need a STAMP from HSS 1009.
Please note, that if you have accumulated enough absences your CHIN grade will be adversely effected. Under extreme special circumstances, a student may join the course past the add deadline only at the discretion of the language faculty teaching that particular course. The faculty's decision is final and the Chinese Studies Program cannot override the faculty's decisions. An add card with approval signatures will be required and the student will need to acquire additional approval signatures and stamps to enroll during Week 3 and Week 4. Enrollment via an ADD CARD after Week 2 is not guaranteed and instructor approval is required.
