There are three types of assistantships for graduate students that will waive part or all of their tuition fee.
First, new graduate students who graduated from an INU sister university abroad, are elligible to receive a 50% tuition reduction.
Second, new graduate students who demonstrate the language proficiency test scores listed below are eligible for a full tuition waiver.
TOEIC 800, TOEFL(CBT 230, iBT 88), TEPS 725, IELTS 6.5, TOPIK level 6 or higher OR-Certified degree from an accredited university in an English speaking country (U.S.A., Canada, UK, Ireland, Australia, New Zealand) with GPA of 3.0 for applicants to the master’s degree program and a GPA of 3.5 for applicants to the doctoral degree program (on a 4.5 scale)
Third, after completing at least one semester, continuing graduate students are awarded tuition waivers based on GPA:
GPA of 3.75 or higher out of 4.5 = full tuition waiver
GPA of 3.5 to 3.74 out of 4.5 = 50% tuition waiver
Graduate students who accept a tuition waiver are expected to work at least 20 hours per week as assigned by the admitting department. They will submit a research activity report at the end of each semester. Graduate students who fail to submit their research activity report prior to the beginning of the next semester will be charged for the previous semester’s tuition and lose their tuition waiver for the next semester.
