Minimum 3 credits / Maximum 4 credits (per session)
In order to complete a full semester's work in only three weeks, WAY courses are highly intensive and fast paced. Classes meet for 150 minutes each day, five days a week (Mon ~ Fri), for 3 weeks (45 in-class hours per course). Korean Language/Taekwondo classes meet for 60 minutes each day, four days a week (Mon ~ Thur), for 3 weeks (15 in-class hours per course). Course requirements include a mid-term examination, a final examination, and often a term paper, although the choice remains up to individual professors.
A course will be cancelled if less than five students register for the course. In the event that your class is cancelled due to the five student minimum policy, immediately consult the WAY office regarding alternate course registration.
Course Drop / Add / Confirmation
Course Change is only available through the Portal System (http://portal.yonsei.ac.kr) during the add/drop period.
Students taking Korean Language must register for the class they were placed in according to their placement test results.
Adding or dropping courses is strongly discouraged due to the short duration of the program. Please note that the office will not issue course enrollment confirmations. Students must refer to their account information to confirm and finalize their course registration.
There is no course withdrawal for Winter Abroad at Yonsei.
If you wish to withdraw from our program, please refer to the program withdrawal.
Non-refundable: Application Fee
Refundable: Tuition Fee (80% refund until the first day of classes)
Students wishing to withdraw from the program must submit a "Request form for Leaving School" to the WAY office in person or by e-mail. This must be done no later than the first day of classes to receive a 80% tuition refund. (Only applicable to Non-exchange students) Students who stop attending classes without submitting the form will receive an "F" for all of their courses. After this date, grades will be issued regardless of a students' performance. If you withdraw from the program, transcript will not be issued. Students also lose their occupancy in the SK Global House and they should return their student ID card. Exchange students must get official written permission from their home institutions to withdraw from the program. If a student awarded a Yonsei scholarship withdraws from the program, the scholarship will be cancelled.
Final grade assessment is based on attendance, class participation, assignments and examinations. Grades are issued on an “A+, A0 and A-“ to “F” scale and will be recorded permanently. After the grade check period, changing grades is not possible under any circumstances.
* Winter Abroad at Yonsei does not have Incomplete or Pass/Nonpass Grading Option
Transcripts will be sent directly to students at the mailing address and university address they provided via air mail approximately one month after the completion of the program. Additional copies of transcripts can be requested for a fee from the WAY office. [How to request transcript]
