After being accepted by CAU, students are responsible for obtaining their own visas. Students must contact and visit the Korean embassy or consulate in their home countries in order to apply for visa. Please keep in mind that students will need to prepare the necessary documents – visa application form, passport, etc. – for themselves beforehand. * For students from the following 26 countries, you may be requested by the consulate to prepare additional documents regarding your financial situation: Bangladesh, Cameroon, China, Egypt, Ethiopia, Ghana, Guinea, Kazakhstan,
Kyrgyzstan, India, Indonesia, Iran, Mali, Mongolia, Myanmar, Nepal, Nigeria, Pakistan, Peru, Philippines, Sri Lanka, Thailand, Ukraine, Uganda, Uzbekistan, Vietnam

1. All students should arrive to Korea with a single-entry Student Visa (D-2) that has a period of three months. Students must obtain their Student Visa (D-2) at least one month before the semester begins. Without a proper Student Visa (D-2), students cannot study at CAU.
2. Please do not use your Student Visa (D-2) to travel to Korea before the semester starts and go back to your home country (or to a third country), since the Student Visa (D-2) is for single-entry. If you want to come earlier and travel with your Student Visa (D-2), you cannot leave Korea until you create your RC(Registration Card).

3. You should come to CAU using a Student Visa, not a Tourist Visa. You cannot change your Tourist Visa to a Student Visa (D-2) in Korea.

4. After arrival, students must create a RC(Registration Card). The RC is a legal permit, which allows students to live in Korea for their entire study period, as well as
exit and enter the country freely. Students wishing to leave the country after arrival must book their RC appointment at the Immigration Office in advance of leaving the
country so that they can gain re-entry permission. For your reference, the RC is created after the semester begins.

5. Students should leave Korea within 30 days of the semester-end date

Personal Expenses $1,500
Total $4,300

If a student wishes to live off-campus, they are required to find and obtain an accommodation themselves before coming to Korea. It is the sole responsibility of the student to communicate with the landlord. For your reference, we provide some off-campus housing information as below:

Ziptoss (집토스): (Korean) (English)
Nestpick (네스트픽): (English)

* CAU is not affiliated with the above companies, and we do not guarantee anything about those residences.
* To find more information about off-campus housing check out this blog post:


According to a change in national policy, all international students are subject to a mandatory subscription to the National Health Insurance Service (NHIS), which is operated by the Korean government. This means that students will be automatically subscribed to the NHIS, even if they do not apply, starting from the date of their entry into Korea. A bill will be sent to their Korean address after their Registration Card is made. This address would be the one they use when applying for their Registration Card.
Students with NHIS will have the same benefits as Korean citizens, including dental and oriental medical treatment, health checkups, etc. There will be restrictions on health insurance benefits, visa extension, etc., if the fee is unpaid. In other words, students will not be able to extend their study period at CAU. Since the fee is relatively high (approximately 40 USD per month), students can choose to obtain other private insurance plans in their home countries before coming to Korea. However, this would mean they would be deliberately choosing to ignore Korea’s national policy, and they will face the disadvantages mentioned above. For all inquiries, students should visit the NHIS website, or contact the NHIS Customer Service (1577-1000, dial 7 for informational in foreign languages) or NHIS Foreign Language Consultation (033-811-2000) after arriving in Korea.
*All exchange/visiting students are responsible for National Health Insurance Service payment for themselves. The OIA will not be able to financially support any student in case of accidents or injuries.
