Frequently Asked Questions
Q: Why is it that Kpop College won't answer my question when I submit it to them?
A: Please be advised that we receive many questions from students all over the world and with the limited staff we have combined with the high volume of questions, it's not possible to respond to all questions. We receive many duplicate questions, so for those questions we update our FAQ page. Please check this page often with new student questions.

Q: Can I upload a photo of a Kpop star instead a picture of myself?
A: Well you can, upload those kind of photos, however for students who want to strive to become a future Kpop star, it's important to gain more confidence in on stage appearance. Record Labels who stop by Kpop College looking for new recruits won't spend time looking at your student profile page if it's not your photo as they know you probably don't have the courage to perform on the international stage and TV performances.
Q: I want to go to Kpop College but my parents want to me enroll at another college for academics, what should I do?
A: You can do both! Kpop College is only in Phase I of our launch, so we're still an online non-accredited university while your academic college is most likely accredited where you can pick up your degree. Your dream is to become a Kpop star, but you also need to look long term and know what you can depend on after that so please enroll at your academic college too. Take for example, Kylee Saunders who is a Japanese / American student in America who just graduated from Stanford University and is also a Jpop artist. She did both careers which is a wise move.
Q: How much does it cost to enroll at attend Kpop College?
A: It is absolutely free to enroll and attend our university Kpop College. At this time, we are still a non-accredited university. We are in Phase I of our launch and our long range goal Phase II is to open up a campus on land one day and offer accredited courses. At that time we may need change the requirements for costs and have students reapply, but for now we are absolutely free university, so enjoy and have lots of fun!
Q: How much will Kpop College pay for me if I go to South Korea?
A: Please be advised that Kpop College is a non revenue generating university. We don't have the financial resources to support students like that. However, we will provide students courses and training materials to help them improve their abilities. We will also promoted talented students who use teamwork, optimism and perseverance. By this promotion, we hope to help students get recognized by record labels and entertainment agencies.

A: Based in internet metric statistics companies, Kpop College is more popular than 99.986% of the Billion plus websites on planet Earth!
Q: Is Kpop College something like Facebook or Twitter?
A: Well Kpop College is more similar to Facebook as students have their very own profile pages where they can post on their wall and message other students. Facebook is more general whereas Kpop College you have friends who share the same interest as you do in Kpop music. Recent internet metrics have just been released that show Kpop College more popular than Twitter and Instagram in some visitor metrics already!
Q: What is the probability that I can become a Kpop artist if I'm not Korean?
A: We don't have that exact statistic, but it's safe to say it's a low probability, not impossible just low. But don't lose hope, take for example the Kpop girl group RANIA. They just added their first African American member, her name is Alex. Read about it here: Billboard Magazine

Q: How do I get promoted by Kpop College?
A: To get promoted by Kpop College, students need to show their talents by posting Kpop covers on Kpop College so we and other students can review. You'll need to practice hard and show you're posting covers often. We look for students who present their image and style very nice on their cover as well as their singing and dancing abilities. To be a Kpop artist, you need to put on your stage image so be sure to present yourself in your best image possible. We also look for students who are kind to one another, who use Teamwork, who are Optimistic and who have strong Perseverance attributes. Too many students just want to skip all that and go straight to becoming a Kpop star which is not going to happen. Don't let your dreams cloud your mind, instead act on your dreams and show the Record Labels your serious about this goal.
Q: Why do you only promote Asian students?
A: We promote more than only Asian students, but to be clear Kpop music is from South Korea and it's hugely popular in the Asian region of the world. Record Labels don't rule out other artists, but if your Asian you do have a clear advantage especially if you speak Korean and your from South Korea. But that doesn't rule out your chances, it only means you'll need to try harder. Don't give up on your dream, show your strength and stamina by working hard and if you do that, you'll open more doors to potential opportunities. Be sure to learn Korean, as it will be vital if you want to improve your chances. See Kpop College Korean language courses presented by our Korean teacher, HanNa!
Q: How is it possible to become a great Kpop dancer?
A: Kpop College has many dance lesson videos that are taught by actual Kpop artists. Start by watching those videos, practice each day, stay optimistic and be persistent in training everyday.

Q: When does training start?
A: Please see hover your mouse over the word "Learn" on the top menu of Kpop College to see all our online courses.
Q: I requested a dorm room in Girls Generation Residence Hall but haven't been accepted in yet, why is that?
A: Sorry for the delay, we are working to process as many request as possible but due to the limited staffing we have it sometimes takes more time to set up your new dorm room.
Q: Are the Residence Dorm Rooms for real?
A: Well, it's real in a sense that it's virtual but not real in a sense that it's a physical location. This allows students to stay in a Residence Hall that best represents their tastes for a particular Kpop group. It creates the opportunity for students to make closer friends with those that share the same interest in Kpop artists. When Kpop College advances to Phase II of our launch, it is our goal to build a campus on land with Residence Halls that are students can reside. In the meantime time, find your dorm room and start making new friends! .... Hey, who's taking the top bunk?
Q: I applied for a Dorm room in the Residence Hall but haven't been accepted yet, why is that?
A: One possible reason is that your student profile photo needs to be a photo of you. Any student that wants to reside in the Residence Halls must have their own photo in their student profile page. This is because you'll be rooming with other students in the same dorm room and they should know who you are.
Q. Which Record Label should I send in my audition material to?
A. Well it's up to you in which company best represents your taste for Kpop groups and artists. Please take a look at our comprehensive list of Record Labels auditions page, in fact Kpop College is ranked #1 in the world by Google for Kpop auditions!
