UW Language Requirement for Graduation

If Korean was your native language until you were 6 years old and if you finished schooling through the first-year of junior high school (JoongHakKyo 1 haknyeon) in Korea, your UW language requirement for graduation is already satisfied. See your major department advisor or an advisor at the Undergraduate Advising Center if you are a pre-major, to have it recorded in your advising file that you are a native speaker of Korean.
