Yes, students are given an official color-printed transcript after the completion of a program.
In HIWS, students can take up to 2 courses, one academic and one elective during a session. If you take both sessions, you can choose up to 4 courses and earn 8 credits in total. The program fee is flat regardless of the number of courses you take.
There will be several more rounds for course registration before the program begins. Make sure not to miss the next round. If the course you desire if fully taken, you can consult with the professor of the class and submit the petition form upon the start of the program. HIWS team will manually register you with additional slot once the professor confirms.
Korean Language proficiency tests will be given on the first day of the program. The instructor will exam your Korean language level to allocate you to the appropriate class.
All HIWS courses are credit-bearing courses and are acknowledged at most universities and institutions. However, it is best that you consult appropriate academic officials at your home institution from the home university about the credit transferability before the program begins. It is student's responsibility and home university's right to consult and transfer the credits. Course syllabi and academic policy of HIWS including the grading system can be found on our official website. It is recommended to keep the course syllabus for your credit transfer.
