KU Visa Information
A student visa is required to participate in the UW-Platteville Exchange program at Korea University (KU). Exchange students are asked to obtain a visa from Korean Embassy or Consulate in their home country before departure to Korea.
A visa is an official document affixed in a U.S. Passport by the Korean Consulate General granting permission to live and study in Korea for the duration that the visa is valid.
Please note that the cost of a Korean student visa is paid out-of-pocket by the student and is not included in UW-Platteville Education Abroad’s program cost. As of September 2015, http://traveltips.usatoday.com/obtain-korean-student-visa-61961.html lists the Korean student visa fee for U.S. citizens to be USD$45.
