For students in catalog years through 2015-2016, three credits of the Foreign Culture requirement can be waived upon successful program completion. The requirement is not automatically applied: please email Degree Review at after completion of the program to update your degree audit. (Students earning a B.A., B.F.A. or B.M degree in the College of Arts & Sciences cannot use study abroad to fulfill their foreign language/foreign culture requirement. See the university catalog for details.)

For students in catalog years 2016 and later, this program can fulfill an integrated learning (I1) requirement upon completion of the integrated learning assignments.  Email  for details.

The Ajou International Summer School is offered each summer for six weeks. The program typically runs from late June to early August. Exact program dates are determined the semester prior to departure.
