Preparation Tips:

  • Submitted documents will NOT be returned in any case. Keep a copy of the completed form in case the materials get lost in the mail. Your teachers should do the same.
  • The application fee is non-refundable.
  • Once you complete filing out the online application, you will be asked to pay the application fee. You may choose to pay with a credit card (VISA/MASTER) or via bank transfer. Credit card payment is much easier but in case you have to use bank transfer, the directions will be given at the end of the online application procedure.
  • After paying the application fee, you will not be able to modify your application or get a refund. Thus, carefully check what you have filled in before paying the application fee.
  • When asked to submit original documents, you must submit original documents. A duplicate should be authenticated with the seal of the issuing institution. Simply photocopied documents are not considered valid.
  • All documents should be translated in English or Korean. The translated copy should have a seal of the institution as well.
  • It is strongly recommended that all required documents should be typed instead of handwritten.
  • Official Test Score Reports such as SAT1, SAT2, ACT, GCE A-Level, IB, AP, NCEA, high school leaving exam, university entrance exam, or other nationally/internationally recognized exam results should be submitted. You may attach a separate sheet to explain the exam procedure, competition rate, result, etc.
  • All three TOEIC score reports (Listening & Reading, Speaking, Writing) should be submitted. 
  • After completing your online application, print out the completed form and the document checklist. Arrange documents in the order shown in the table above. Please use clips to bind the contents and do not staple. The checklist should be on top.
  • If any of the submitted materials contain false information, admission may be rescinded. Applicants whose forms and supporting documents are incomplete or improper will be disqualified from the admissions process.
  • The application number should be kept for further procedure such as checking the final decision.
  • Make sure to visit the admissions website for document arrival check (June 8th ~ July 4th). We will not contact you individually.
