BBA

The amount of tuition you pay your first semester at SolBridge remains unchanged during your entire time in the BBA program. Other costs including residence, breakfast, activity and medical fees are reviewed every semester and subject to change. The estimated costs for one year are included below so you can do a general budget for your first year at SolBridge. For further cost inquiries, please send an email to info@solbridge.ac.kr.

The SolBridge academic year consists of two assessment periods, one in the spring and one in the fall. Each assessment period is in the form of a fifteen-week semester followed by an additional six-week inter-session semester (six weeks in the summer for the spring semester, six weeks in the winter for the fall semester). There is a five-week study break which separates each assessment period. Students are expected to stay at SolBridge during each full assessment period. Students may stay during the summer or winter five-week study breaks if they wish to participate in internships, academic programs, or for personal reasons. Apart from tuition, students must cater for other expenses including the dormitory, meals, health insurance, and dormitory security deposit without exception during their stay at SolBridge.
