Applicants who have been admitted to a full-time undergraduate program will be asked to indicate their preferences for college affiliation. In assigning new students to different Colleges, it is desirable that each College would have students from different faculties/ departments to facilitate interdisciplinary exchange of knowledge and ideas and to widen the students' intellectual perspective. The system for assigning new students to Colleges takes into consideration the preferences of students, their study program and admission scores. Priority is given to a new student to be assigned to his/her first-preference College if either of his/her parent is an alumnus/alumna of the College.
While students will be assigned college affiliation based on their preferences as far as possible, they may not be assigned their most preferred College owing to limitation of places available.
