Quick Notes

We will edit certain parts of your application - please do NOT change these after we do:

  • Passport expiration date - students often enter their birthdates for some reason; we will correct this.

  • Your name - we will make it conform to the form on your passport that is required by Immigration. This is likely not how many of you write your names - but there is a format required by law since you are not a Korean citizen.

  • University name - sometimes students enter the wrong name or cannot find it on our list (it's very long, we know).
