Any undergraduate or graduate students of SKKU who have concerns can go to the center to get counseling. Kinogs can get counseling and support in various areas such as extracurricular programs, careers, employment, start-ups, double majors, and scholarships as well as emotional support. Also, if a student wants more detailed information, the center connects the student with the relevant department at SKKU. It is the first Student Success Center in Korea which informs about the many curricular and extracurricular activities to undergraduates and graduates. Also, by collecting data from a number of counselings, the center will work on the integrated management of students.
