The score reports must prove that the students achieved the required score for admission to the program they applied to and must still be within their validity period. For such score reports to be deemed acceptable, students must present their original exam results and these results must still be valid at the time of their submission to the University. For a test result to be valid, the validity period of the respective exam should not have expired since the administration of the exam. Master’s degree applicants who graduated from English-medium higher education programs within the last two years are exempted from the English Proficiency Examination Score requirement, so long as they are deemed proficient in English by the respective graduate school.

  • Military Service Document : Students who plan to postpone their mandatory military service on the grounds of their enrollment in our University’s graduate programs must obtain a military service document from the Military Entrance Processing Station or the e-government system (with a barcode), and submit it to the University to prove their eligibility for enrollment. The military service document must have been obtained within the last month and must prove that there are not any restrictions that would prevent the student from enrolling in the program. In an event in which the student already postponed his mandatory military service once due to his enrollment in a graduate program at another university, the student must first terminate his existing enrollment at the other University, and cancel his military service postponement in order to be eligible to enroll in our University’s program. Otherwise, our University will not be able to proceed with the student’s enrollment. Once the student terminates his existing enrollment in the other graduate program, he must then notify the respective Military Entrance Processing Station of the termination of his enrollment in the previous graduate program to have his military service postponement cancelled. After the military service postponement is cancelled, the student then must obtain the proof of cancellation from the Military Entrance Processing Station and upload it to proceed with his enrollment. Master’s or Ph.D. graduates cannot qualify for military service postponement if they apply to a new graduate program which is at the same level with the program from which they graduated. Students who postponed their mandatory military service for any other reason, and therefore for whom the University does not need to apply for military service postponement, must notify the Student Services of their current status at the time of enrollment via email. 
  • Certificate of Discharge: Prospective students who duly completed their military service must submit the scanned copy of their certificate of discharge. (Scanned copies of Certificates of Discharge obtained from the e-government website with barcodes are also acceptable.

Certificate of Exemption: Prospective students who were granted permanent exemption from mandatory military service must submit a scanned copy of their certificates of exemption to prove their exemption and the reason for exemption. (Certificates of Exemption obtained from the e-government website with barcodes are also acceptable.) However, prospective students who are granted with temporary/limited exemption from mandatory military service must obtain their certificates of exemption from the Military Entrance Processing Station in person. The certificates of exemption must be newly issued.)

•Paid Military Service Certificate: Prospective students who applied for paid military service must upload their proof of application.
