- Students who are re-registering for additional semester(s) due to insufficient grades or credit hour requirements for graduation must pay the tuition in full to apply for a scholarship

Scholarship Application Period
- The scholarship application period shall be setup at the end of the semester that comes immediately before the scholarship receiving semester. For example, to receive a scholarship for the second semester of 2019, students must apply for scholarship during the scholarship application period at the end of the first semester of 2019.
- Students must check the announcements for the application period (notice on the university-undergraduate website).
Scholarship Application Process
Go to SKKU GLS (Sungkyunkwan Intranet Service) – Application Requirement Management – Scholarship - Application menu, fill out an application form and submit all relevant documents to your (major) department office.
Payment of Scholarships
- Deduction in Tuition Statement: Scholarships shall be paid on a deduction-in-tuition-statement basis. This means that the sum of scholarships will be specified in the tuition statement mailed every semester, and that students only need to pay the difference: the amount is the tuition after having the scholarship deducted.
- Cash Payment (payment into student’s bank account or issuance of scholarship certificate): If a notice of reduction in tuition is already made to a student but there is a change in the scholarship recipient, then the new recipient shall receive scholarship in cash. If a student who is the recipient of a continuous scholarship returns to school after a leave of absence, the student’s scholarship shall also be paid in cash. Also, the payment of scholarships from non-university scholarship foundations shall also be paid in cash.
