Admission decisions are based on a number of factors, including Grade Point Average (GPA), Study Plans, Personal Statements, Letters of Recommendation, as well as other achievement records and/or descriptions of specific qualifications. In reviewing applications, the admissions committee considers the level of studies completed, quality of achievement, characteristics of institution attended, appropriateness of goals, and suitability of preparation for the proposed program of studies. Proficiency in Korean and other languages is also taken into consideration. Depending on the policy of the college or department to which the applicant is applying, interviews and examinations may also be required. Applicants will be notified of interviews when deemed necessary.
