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.

The earliest semester to apply for is the 2022 Fall semester, and applications will be received from April 1 2022 until July 15 2022. Applications received after the deadline will be considered based on available time and space.
