Compliance with University Policies

Registration as a student constitutes a commitment by the student to abide by University policies, rules and regulations, including those concerning registration, academic performance, student conduct, health and safety, use of the libraries and computing resources, university facilities, and the payment of fees and assessments. Some of these are set forth in the student handbook while others are available in relevant University offices. Students should take responsibility for informing themselves of applicable University policies, rules and regulations.

GLS System

An SKKU online membership ID provides access to the Sunkyunkwan University Academic System for Students (GLS) and its services, and identifies authorized users of these services.

Using GLS, students are able to register for courses and change courses, apply for a leave of absence and reinstatement as well as change their address, and personal Information. In addition, retrieval services of academic records and curriculum like syllabus or course description is provided through the GLS system. Further information concerning the GLS system may be found at the orientation for newly arrived students.


Registration means that students declare their intention to continue studying at SKKU and to retain their student status in Korea. Students on campus who are not registered during the scheduled period do NOT have the privileges of an SKKU student.

A person wishing to be reinstated as a graduate must apply for reinstatement through the GLS system and the registration notice paper may be found on GLS and printed out.

How to Register

  • - The moment your tuition and other fees are paid, registration is complete.
  • - The registration notice will be sent each semester, or found on GLS where it can be printed out.
  • - Be sure to complete the payment at the designated bank by the due date.
  • - Generally, the registration period is scheduled on the 3rd week of February and August respectively.

Dismissal by No Enrollment

Students who are not registered by the due date are considered dismissed students by default unless they apply for registration or leave of absence. In the event of the dismissed student, their legal status as a student in Korea may be discontinued and they must leave the country within a determined period.

students a maximum of up to six semesters.
Students wishing to be reinstated must apply to return through the GLS system. After filling for returning through GLS, students can print out the registration notice for registration. During the scheduled registration period, they must complete the tuition payment and seek to enroll in classes.

Unless students return to the University within the scheduled semester, they must apply for an extension of leave of absence, or they will be dismissed from the University, according to the Dismissal of Expiration of Leave of Absence policy.

Application for readmission must be submitted to the relevant administrative office.
