    Fee: Undergraduate freshmen: 12,000 won

 International phone calls can be made through public card phone (coin phones will not connect overseas) and personal phones. Callers can use International Direct Dialing (IDD) or go through an operator. For IDD, dial an international access code (001, 002, or 008- all have slightly different rates and discount periods), the country code, area code, and phone number. For example, to call 555-1234 in Los Angeles (area code 213, country code 1), using KT (001) as the international access provider, dial 001-1-213-555-1234. For an international operator, dial 00799.


Mobile Phone

Very few Koreans do not have mobile phones. The country has two major types of mobile phone services: cellular and PCS. Providers have their own prefix for numbers. Monthly subscription and per-call fees vary between providers, but PCS service is generally cheaper. Subscribers pay for all calls that they make. Calls made to mobile phones are charged more than calls made to land line phones. However, the fee to call a mobile phone is a flat time-based charge and does not depend on the distance involved. Several companies rent mobile phones for short-term usage. (Please see the local English language newspapers for advertisements from rental agencies.) Foreign residents must provide their Certificate of Alien Registration, passport, and a credit card when applying for service.



Climate

Korea lies in the temperate zone and has four distinct seasons.

  ▶ ln late March or early April, the trees bloom beautifully to mark the beginning of spring. Most of the sunny days can be expected from March to May.

   ▶ During the relatively hot and rainy summer season, the vegetation is green and lush. The average temperature in June is over 20℃. The monsoon rains usually begin at the end of June and last until mid- to late July.

    ▶ The coming of autumn in late September brings continental winds and dry weather, making the fall months the most pleasant time of the year. The vivid golds and vibrant reds of the changing leaves create a colorful panorama.

   ▶ December to February are cold and dry with occasional rain or snow. During the winter months, three or four days of cold weather are usually followed by a few warmer days.



Currency

The Bank of Korea issues currency notes and mints coins. Currency units are 1,000-, 5,000-, and 10,000-won notes, and coins include 10-, 50-, 100-, and 500-won coins. Special bank checks (Supyo) in denominations of 100,000 won or higher can be issued by banks on-demand, but are sometimes subject to a handling charge by merchants, especially is cashed outside of the city where they are issued. There are two banks on campus, Nong-hyup(NACF:National Agricultural Cooperative Federation) and Cho-Heung Bank. Both deal with money exchange, opening accounts, telegraphic transferring, etc.
