Steps to Study Abroad through Pace
Pace Study Abroad's Application Deadlines:
Fall Semester: March 15
Spring Semester: October 15
This is a new program for Pace, as of Spring 2023, so there aren't yet any pre-approved courses for this program at Pace for this TEAN program in Busan.
All universities in South Korea have a somewhat complicated course registration where they give preference to local (Koreana) students to register for courses first. During the application period, TEAN students are sent course selection information that provides information on the competitiveness of course registration at Korea University. If students absolutely need required courses (to graduate on time), then they shouldn't choose this program in Korea.
- Pace recommends that you try to select some courses from this Pre-approved Courses list because these TEAN Korea courses have already been reviewed and approved by Pace Department Chairs. If you select courses from this list, you’ll only need to receive approval from your Pace Academic Advisor for those courses - which will make the process of receiving Pace academic credit for your semester abroad much easier.
- However, if the pre-approved courses listed don’t fit with your interests/academic plans and you chose a course that’s NOT on the pre-approved list, you’ll need to seek approval from a Pace Department Chair, which could take some time.
- Be sure to check with TEAN Korea's current course catalog (and Pace’s current course catalog) because some courses listed on the link above may no longer be offered at TEAN Korea or are only available during one of the terms (Fall or Spring).

- Financial FAQs: If you have more questions about the cost of study abroad, financial aid, and scholarships, review these Pace FAQs.
- Pace tuition and Fees, including a $100 Study Abroad Fee are billed to the student account.
- Room charges are the responsibility of the student and are paid directly to the host institution.
- Out-of-pocket expenses (airfare, meals, local transportation, etc.) are the responsibility of the student.
- All federal and state financial aid apply during the semester abroad. Up to $12,500 of institutional financial aid (Pace scholarships/grants) applies to the semester abroad. (Portability of Pace institutional aid is limited to 2 semesters, and Pace tuition remission does not apply.)
A minimum of 12 U.S. credits
is required during a semester abroad to maintain full-time status, defined as being enrolled in 12-18 U.S. credits per semester. However, we STRONGLY recommend that you take the equivalent of 15 U.S. credits
- Any unforeseen changes to your schedule abroad could reduce your course load below 12 U.S. credits (e.g., canceled classes or a change in your class choices)
- Pace students must have full-time status to receive financial aid. If you are eligible for financial aid but enroll in fewer than 12 U.S. credits, you will lose your financial aid. Taking 15 U.S. credits abroad acts as a cushion so you’re not at risk of losing financial aid in case of any unforeseen changes.
