• Is there any special procedure I should care for in the process?
• Can I submit the original copy of the documents directly?
└ All applicants must submit certified copy of their school record. They have 2 options: Apostille and Korean consular's legalization; other ways are not acceptabl. Apostille is not possible in all countries but only signatory states. In case an applicant's home country is not one of them, the one's only option is Korean consular's legalization. Check with the Korean embassy and get advised for their process.
└ Korean sponsorship is required to applicants whose nationality is designated by our Ministry of Justice. This is designed to verify the reference of students from “21 designated countries of high rate of illegal stay”. Sponsors must be a citizen who can report their regular income. Anyone who doesn’t meet these requirements cannot be regarded as Korean sponsorship for the registration. ☞ Reference Document: No.5 "법무부 지정 불법체류다발국가 목록"
• I am admitted but need to change my starting date for some reasons.
• Is study permit still available when I receive the admission but don’t attend the school?
└ Admittees are able to request a defferal by submitting a letter via email no later than their tuition payment date or start date. This letter must include why you have to postpone your start date and when you want to newly start. We will review your letter and approve the deferral if appropriate. If disapproved, the student have to reapply later.
• Can I have a break for a while and come back later?
• Can I leave in the middle of study?
└ Visit our office and start an application process for your cancellation or leave of absence. Bring a copy of your bank account for your tuition refund if necessary. Our refund rate depends on the date of your application.
• I got my admission letter but want to get my D4 after arrival.
• Is it possible to change my status while studying?
└ Status change into D4 is not always possible but depend on an applicant's nationality and entering status. Contact the Immigration Service if you are eligible and prepare for the process. However, we strongly recommend finish your D4 process before your departure. If you want to chage your status in the middle of your study, visit our office.
└ Ask us via email for the due date extension. However, make an early request, because late payment should be a reason for our admission withdrawal. D4 applicants must finish their payment to receive our admission package. Incomplete payment withholds admission process.
