Korean Course Enrolment Instructions

2022-2023 Academic Year

Please enrol or add yourself onto the waitlist for EAS110Y1 or EAS211Y1 via ACORN. Please refer to the Arts & Science Timetable for the date the course will become available to you for enrolment on ACORN. You must also submit an online EAS110Y1/EAS211Y1 Screening Form. The form must be submitted within 48 hours after you enrol in the course on ACORN. Failure to submit the mandatory form will result in removal from the course. Students must attend a mandatory interview that will take place during the first week of classes. Attendance at the first lecture and all tutorials in the first week is mandatory. Students who do not fill in the screening form or miss the interviews will be removed from the class by the department, as will students who have background in the language.

*EAS110Y1 is not eligible for the CR/NCR option.*
**Please note that repeating Korean language courses is not allowed in cases where students have completed over one third of the total class hours in a previous year. If this applies to you, you must take the Korean Placement Test to attempt to proceed to the next level.**

Students with any background at all who might qualify for an upper-year course must attend a placement interview/test and receive a placement prior to enrolment. See placement test/interview details below. Being placed in a course does not guarantee you a spot in the course. Please note that native speakers of Korean and some students with a prior linguistic background in Korean are not permitted to take Korean courses for credit. To find out if you are qualified for a course, please read the program policy.

After you have received a course placement (or if you have the minimum grade in the prerequisite), please check the Arts & Science Timetable to see when you can enrol in the course in which you have been placed.

*Please note that repeating Korean language courses is not allowed in cases where students have completed over one third of the total class hours in a previous year. If this applies to you, you must take the Korean Placement Test to attempt to proceed to the next level.*

Upcoming Placement Interviews

Please note that some students interviewed will be required to write a placement test as well.

August 29 - To register for these interviews, submit the Korean Placement Interview/Test Form. The interviews will take place online. The registration deadline for the interview is August 10 at noon EDT. 

Graduate Students

Graduate students from within and outside the department who need knowledge of Korean for their research may take a Korean course with the approval of EAS. To request enrolment, please submit the Language Course Enrolment Request Form for Graduate Students and register for the placement interview. If placed in a course, you will be enrolled in a graduate course code though the credit does not normally count towards graduate programs. The course is graded as credit/non-credit (CR/NCR); 70% or above is required for a CR. Auditing is not an option.
