Rules and Limitations for Transferring Credits
  1. 1
    Course credits and grades from other universities are accepted if they do not substitute course credits and grades from Korea University.
    However, courses can be substituted according to the student’s needs for major-required or major-related electives or general elective course credits.
  2. 2
    The credit conversion rate is 1:1 for courses taken at domestic universities. Since the credit system at international universities is usually different from that of Korea University, a credit conversion standard is applied.
  3. 3
    Grades (credits) from other universities are not included in the calculation of one’s GPA, but are included in total credits.

    Total credits and the approval for courses taken at other universities are determined by the affiliated department (school/division).
    In the case of transferring credits, the number of course credits from other universities must be equal to or higher than that of the substituted course at Korea University.
  5. 5
    Credits from other universities cannot be transferred arbitrarily by students. Except for courses with an F grade or equivalent and audited courses, credits from all courses are accepted by Korea University.

    Courses taken at Korea University cannot be retaken at other universities, and courses taken at other universities cannot be retaken at Korea University.
