All the necessary information about the application process will be announced via email. If you have yet to receive any emails regarding changes, please inform us by contacting us at:

Admission Notice

All admission decisions will be made within four weeks from the date of application. The admission letter with the certificate of admission will be sent to the relevant office of the student's home university two months before the start of the applicable semester.

Passport and Visa

A valid passport is needed to travel to Korea. The students should make sure that their passports are valid for the whole duration of their stay in Korea. It is recommended that a photocopy of all the information contained on the passport, such as the passport number, issuance and expiration dates, valid visa status, and name and address of the person to be notified in case of emergency, be kept. All the students must obtain a student visa (D-2 visa) before coming to Korea, unless they intend to be in Korea for less than 90 days. The students should submit the certificate of admission issued by Chung-Ang University together with the other required documents to the nearby Korean Embassy or Consulate for their visa application.

Travel and Airport Pickup

Exchange students are expected to arrive on the last weekend of February for the spring semester, and on the last weekend of August for the fall semester. The International Center will pick up the arriving students at Incheon International Airport. Please send us an airport pickup request through your international office. The students from the same university are expected to arrive at the same time via the same flight. Your personal student helper (buddy) will meet you at the airport and will guide you to your housing and to the International Center.

Information on the Incheon :


Exchange students will live in the dormitories/apartments in either the Seoul or Anseong campuses based on the conditions laid out in the exchange agreement. If the student wishes to live outside of the dorms, it is the student’s responsibility to find accommodations.


The International Center organizes an orientation session for international exchange students at the beginning of each semester. Information on registration, cultural activities, campus life, and immigration-related legal issues will be provided during the orientation.
