Course Level Recommendations
ISA-Veritas offers course level recommendations for the courses listed below. Please note that the course level recommendations are based on Korea University course codes. All Korea University course codes consist of four letters detailing the subject area (such as BUSS for Business) followed by a three-digit course number between 1xx and 4xx. 1xx-2xx level courses are introductory or lower division courses equivalent to freshman or sophomore level courses. 3xx-4xx level are advanced, junior and senior level courses. Courses with codes beginning with a 3 or 4 are recommended as upper division. These ISA-Veritas recommendations are intended to facilitate the determination of course equivalencies by advisors and credential evaluators at participants' U.S. home institutions.
