Academic Information

Course Availability and Selection

  • The courses below reflect the most current list of courses released by the host university. While this list may be used as a general guide while completing your pre-registration form, the host university did not publish the final course list for this semester. This site will be updated once ISA receives the final list of courses, along with a note notifying students of the change.
  • Availability of courses is based on enrollment numbers and scheduling. All students should seek pre-approval for alternate courses in the event of last-minute class cancellations.
  • Requests for sample syllabi can be made to the ISA South Korea Program Manager.

Course Credit

  • While at Korea University, students can enroll in up to 6 courses.
  • Per Korea University, three credits are equivalent to 3 U.S. semester credits. Credit transfer is ultimately determined by the student’s home university.
  • According to ISA policy and possible visa requirements, students must maintain full-time enrollment status, as determined by their home institutions, for the duration of the program.

Business Administration Courses

  • Please be aware that Korea University is experiencing a high demand for Business Administration courses. It may be challenging to register for these courses and there will be no guarantee for their preferred choices. If you plan on taking Business Administration courses, we encourage you to have alternative choices.

Course Level Recommendations

  • ISA offers course level recommendations for the courses listed below. Please note that the course level recommendations are based on Korea University's course year classifications of 1, 2, 3 or 4, which correspond to the Korean four-year undergraduate level system.
  • Courses listed in Korea University's course database classified as year 0, 1 or 2 are recommended as lower division. Courses listed in Korea University's course database classified as year 3 or 4 are recommended as upper division.
  • These ISA recommendations are intended to facilitate the determination of course equivalencies by advisors and credential evaluators at participants' U.S. home institutions.

Korean Language Courses

  • Taking a Korean language course is not required. However, we encourage students to do so.
  • Students will be required to take a placement exam at the beginning of each semester. Please note that your performance on the placement exam may not reflect the number of semesters of language instruction you've already completed at your home university. We strongly suggest that students who are trying to place into any level of language beyond true beginning prepare for the language placement exam by reviewing previous coursework.
