Regulations Concerned

Korea University Constitution Article 15 (Re-admission), Academic Regulations Chapter 2 Section 1 Subsection 3 Re-admission


Students who have been removed from the student register after having entered the University and having been enrolled for more than one semester who desire to continue their studies at the University are eligible for readmission, which shall be permitted through the recommendation of the head of the department/division/school when there is a vacancy under the student quota of the relevant department/division/school.


Readmission is permitted to students only when two semesters or more have passed since a student was removed from the student register. 

However, readmission is permitted when one semester has passed since the student was removed from the student register due to the failure to return within the registration period after the rationale for absence is no longer valid or due to the failure to register for a semester by the deadline.

Readmission is not permitted to students affiliated with the College of Medicine who have been removed from the student register due to academic failure or due to an exceeded length of studentship from the College of Medicine.

Application Period

Early June (Spring Semester), Early December (Fall Semester)

For more details, refer to the website or notice for readmission on the Academic Calendar of the KU Portal.
