How to Register


Please read the following for more information and instructions on how to enroll for courses at HUFS.

Kindly note that course enrollment in Korea is HIGHLY COMPETITIVE so it is strongly recommended that students bring a back up plan when joining our program in the likelyhood of not being able to enroll for first choice courses.

course availability 

There are two rounds of course registration at HUFS. Registering for courses is very competitive and preference is given to seniors and juniors, as well to students who are majoring in a given subject. Each day of enrollment, a new number of slots for each course will become available for students. Exchange and Visiting students will be able to enroll for courses every single day (except for restricted courses).

general elective courses

In the Course Finder, but using a different menu to search - see the photo for the button on the left, the the location in the menu that says "외국인을 위한 한국학(서울)".

Important Notes

It is ideal to secure your courses before you come to Korea, but if you do not get the courses you want during the first round of registration, please do not worry! You will have another chance to register during Round 2. 

Many courses are restricted during the 1st round to ensure that local HUFS students get the courses they need for their majors (especially business courses). Please see the FAQ section about professor email addresses (see video below as well) and search for your professors contact information to get a head start.

Course Registration by Email               

If you fail to register online, please do the following steps:

Please be aware that there are limited seats, and spots are given on a first come, first served basis. 

Also, getting the professor’s signature is not a guarantee a spot in the class. There still may be restrictions based on majors/departments as well as limits on class size.

Students can register in these courses during the first week of the semester only - do not take this to the OIAM before the semester starts.

How to Get Instructors Contact Info


Login to HUFS Web Information System (WIS: )

After you are logged in, you can open the course syllabuses and see the email address of the instructors in our Google Site or Homepage. 

Watch the video to see how this works.


Although the WIS home page looks identical to the Course Registration Page - these two are NOT the same places to login for getting instructor contact information off the syllabus.
