For those not available, it is the students responsibility to coordinate with the professor and ensure you have the syllabus and required course information for taking courses. If you have any inquiries about the course, please contact the professor before the semester begins.

Tuition

All GSIS students are strongly urged to pay their tuition on time during the enrollment period of each semester. The GSIS office normally announces the tuition payment around two-three weeks before each semester starts.

Assessment, Course Evaluation, Scholarships
Assessment
Students are given at least two regular examinations (mid-term and final) and additional written assignments as deemed necessary by the professor. Student performance is assessed based on a combination of class attendance (very important in Korean University, and checked almost every time the class meets), class participation, papers, quizzes, and examinations. The evaluation method and criteria vary according to the professor’s belief, teaching styles, the content of the class, etc.
The times and dates of examination for each class will be announced by the professor, but occasionally some change is required in the time or location. Please confirm your exam time and location the day before each exam.
At least 75% attendance is required to earn a grade.
Course Evaluation
Ajou University runs course evaluation system in order to provide consequent qulified courses to students.
Every student should do your course evaluation in the last week of each semester online.
Only those who’ve done the course evaluation are allowed to check your grades.
Course Evaluation is completely SECRET BALLOT and professors as well as GSIS office cannot find the evaluator’s name. You please evaluate the course straightforwardly and there would be no disadvantage to the evaluator.
