Woosong College seeks motivated individuals from diverse social, economic, ethnic, and geographic backgrounds. Students are encouraged to bring their own diversity and experience into the classroom.

Admission to Woosong College is evaluated on a case-by-case basis taking into account the applicant’s academic records, Korean or English proficiency, financial status, personal essay, extra-curricular activities, and letter(s) of recommendation.

Admission is selective and students are urged to apply as early as possible to ensure sufficient time for application review, visa application, and moving preparations. Admissions are conducted on a rolling basis – students may apply any time prior to the deadline. The earliest semester to apply for is the Spring 2020 semester and the deadline is January 5th, 2020. Applications received after the deadline will be considered based on available time and space.

Contact the Global Cooperation Center by emailing with any questions related to your application.


  1. The applicant must have graduated or will graduate from a secondary education institution.
  2. Korean Proficiency: TOPIK Level 2 or higher
    (English Proficiency will be evaluated upon submission of Certified English Proficiency Test Score or during online interview.)
  3. Online Interview: Students may be asked to interview with a faculty member
  4. Financial Resources: Students must demonstrate available funds to include first year expenses
    (The average balance of your or your financial guarantor’s bank account for 6 months must be over $18,000 USD.)

Applicants who provide Korean or English proficiency scores that meet admissions criteria and pass the online interview will be considered for regular admission. Students applying with scores lower than general admissions requirements may qualify for a conditional acceptance based on the strength of their online interview. In such cases, students may be required to take additional Korean or English classes as mandatory course additions during their first semester of studies, or join our Residential Intensive Korean or English Program for an entire semester.
