Fall 2020 Online Courses For-Credit Options
You can take the fall 2020 online courses for-credit through any of the following routes listed below. Taking courses for-credit requires that RYI register you with our partner Kathmandu University, therefore it is necessary to sign up to one of the following programs listed below. You will need to take the course for-credit if you are planning to enroll in one of our degree programs in the future and would like to transfer the credits for this purpose, or if you want transfer the credits to a degree program at another university (providing that they accept credits from Kathmandu University). If you wish to continue the study of your chosen course at RYI in the future without completing a degree it is not necessary to take the course for-credit as RYI will recognize your level so long as you have successfully completed the course.
How to Apply!
Please select from the list below the program which matches your situation, and check if you meet the eligibility requirements necessary to be accepted. If so, you can then hit the "Apply Here" button where you will be redirected to an application page. Once you arrive to this page you can fill out the application form and then click "submit". You will receive an email with a username and password to log on to the RYI Portal where you can complete your application. In this second part of the application process there is a section called "Statement of Purpose", in this section please specify which course/courses you are interested in, and fill out all other relevant sections of the application form. Once you have submitted the the second part of the application RYI will contact you within a few days to let you know if you have been accepted into the course.
Please note that at this point you are applying to one of our undergraduate programs, and in this phase of the application process there won't be an option to choose the course/courses you plan on taking. After you have been accepted into the program RYI will be in contact within a few days to let you know if you have been accepted and to ask you to register for the course/courses you would like to study. It is at this point that you can make your actual course choice through the process of course registration. RYI's application system is set up to accommodate our regular on-campus programs and it is not adapted to all the online options that we are now offering. This is the reason that you will find yourself first applying to a program, and subsequently registering for the course. You can register for any course we offer given you have the necessary pre-requisites.
