Q&A

01. Flexible Academic Year sounds strange to me. Please explain about its purpose and uniqueness.
  • The Flexible Academic Year (FAY) is designed to customize the student’s schedule with the academic year.
    On the surface, FAY takes the semblance of quarter system, yet is more like the semester system with the Intensive Programs for the summer and winter season. Therefore, the 1st and 2nd Semesters start on early March and early September respectively. Likewise, the Summer & Winter Intensive Semesters begin on mid-June and mid-December.
    It is SCU that has first adopted the academic year with 4 semesters amongst the online universities in Korea.
02. Is FAY beneficial to students?
  • Yes, the advantage of FAY is tremendous. To begin with, the number of academic years for student can be shortened to 3 years at best. Ideally, the student may have to engage in the tight schedule, yet can receive the bachelor’s degree 1 year earlier. On the other hand, FAY is also applicable to the student who might wish to take the courses on a rather slow pace. The student can allocate the entire workload onto 4 consecutive semesters of FAY. For instance, the number of coursework during the 1st Semester can be lowered in proportion to the number increased in the Summer Intensive Semester.

Luckily, there is no mid-term exam, but the final exam is due by the end of the Intensive Semester.

Students who first apply for the Intensive Semester are all entitled to the scholarship, but in the subsequent Intensive Semester(s), the student must achieve GPA 3.0 or above to meet the requirement of the same scholarship. However, please note that the student who spent more than 4 academic years is not eligible for the scholarship.
