On August 9, UOS decided not to charge an admission fee and screening fee for admission test from this year. This is the first case in which both fees have been removed among four-year-course universities. At UOS, for last year’s entrance, the admission fee was 92,000 KRW and the screening fee for regular admission was 35,000 KRW, while the screening fee for early admission was 60,000 KRW.

Until now, many people have been concerned about excessive cost of admission fee and screening fee, and hope that Korea’s universities will ease the financial burden of such fees. According to UOS officials, students in Korea had been paying an average of 500,000 KRW per person for university admission test screening fees, since they can apply to university nine times during the early and regular admission periods. So, UOS made the decision to reduce the students’ financial burdens, fulfill a social obligation, and enhance public awareness of UOS as the public university of Seoul. In our interview with high school student Kim, he said, “I am glad to hear about this surprising news. These fees could impose financial pressure on me. This decision by UOS will serve as model to other universities.”

UOS officials are expecting that, from next year, 1.8 million students will receive the complimentary benefit of free screening fee each year when considering the number of applicants in 2017. It is also expected that about two thousand newly enrolled UOS students per year will receive the benefit of free admission fee.

However, some people criticized this decision by UOS. They said, “Because the Seoul city government decided that it must make up for the revenue losses resulting from free admission and screening fees at UOS, a great amount of taxes will have to be levied on the citizens of Seoul. However, UOS does not seem to be striving to make up for the lost revenues autonomously.”
