Students on a leave of absence are not eligible for application.
Korea University Constitution Chapter 4 Section 3 Article 35, Academic Regulations Chapter 6 Section 2 Subsection 2
An interdisciplinary major means that courses from two or more departments (colleges) are selected to form a separate curriculum. For those who complete an interdisciplinary major which is recognized as a second major, two degrees are awarded upon graduation.
Students must be enrolled in their first major and have been registered for more than three semesters (two semesters for transfer students).
Students who are accepted but take a leave of absence in or during the semester they begin an interdisciplinary major will be disqualified.
Duration of enrollment for current students: Spring Semester (March 1~July 31), Fall Semester (September 1~January 28 of the following year)
Students who have already been approved for double or interdisciplinary majors, or those who have applied for the engineering certification program are not eligible.
- However, if the above-mentioned students intend to apply, their approved double or interdisciplinary majors or application for engineering certification must be abandoned by completing the withdrawal procedure within a specified period of time. (An application of abandonment can be submitted through the portal system.)
- Students can reapply only once after abandoning an approved double or interdisciplinary major. If they fail to reapply, students must complete an intensive major of their first major.
For more information, refer to the notices and academic calendar on the KU Portal and the interdisciplinary major website.
Selection Standards: Academic transcript, study plan, as well as other evaluation criteria required by the desired department or major.
(Academic evaluation reflects a students’ GPA for all courses (including those in which an F grade was received) taken until the previous semester at the time of application.)
