There are 2 types of student statuses at EISC. The two types of students will not experience the program any differently, however, there are some distinctions to take note of.
1. Fee-Paying Visiting Student:
The student pays the application and tuition fee personally and can enroll directly without going through their home university. Visiting students are waived/exempted from paying field trip fees (not including Pop-up Class Trip).
2. Exchange student:
The student must be nominated officially by the home university by applying through the appropriate division of their home university. Exchange students must take two courses (for ISC program) and must pay for the field trips.
International Summer College (4 Weeks): Attending field trips are optional! Therefore, if you do not wish to participate in the field trips you do not have to pay the field trip fee. You may choose which field trips you would like to participate in when you sign up for them during the opening ceremony or at the Office of International Affairs.
Summer Special Program: The field trips and cultural excursions are essential components of this program. Therefore, students must participate in the field trips and cultural excursions and the field trip fee must be paid.
No, fee paying visiting students are simply waived/exempted from paying the field trip fee. That means that the field trip fee is not included in the tuition and cannot be deducted.
Can tuition and application fees be paid through other methods of payment other than a wire transfer?
No, unfortunately the initial tuition and application fees can only be paid through a wire transfer.
No, the housing and field trip fee must be paid in cash at the at the on-campus ECC Shinhan Bank upon arrival. Right outside of the bank, cash can be withdrawn from ATMS which accepts global cards (Visa, MasterCard, Maestro, Cirrus, Plus, JCB).
I only want to attend one field trip of the International Summer College, can I pay less for the field trip fee?
The optional field trip fee of the International Summer College is a flat fee. That means that even if you only participate in 1 field trip or all the field trips, the field trip fee does not change
There is a shared kitchen that students can use on Floor B1 of the I-House Building C (next to the cafe).
In addition, on Floor B1 & 10 in I-House Building D and every floor of Graduate Student Dorm A, B, and I-House Building C, it is equipped with a microwave, toaster, electric kettle, water purifier, and rice cooker. Any other items that may cause fire are not permitted and thus cannot be brought in.
Students residing at the dormitories who will be attending both the International Summer College and Summer Special Program are permitted to stay in the dormitories during the gap period between both sessions. You will not need to check-out and check-in between the move-out and move-in dates!
Note: You may be charged an extra fee that will be added to the housing fee of your Summer Special Program invoice.
According to its availability, it is possible to change from a single to a double room or vice versa. However, please be mindful that rooms are especially assigned by the housing office and cannot be changed arbitrarily. After check-in, you cannot change the type of room you have been assigned.
