New Students To-Do List

Congratulations on your admission to National Chengchi University! OIC knows that there are many things you must do before and upon your arrival at NCCU, and this handy checklist will help you get organized. The Office of International Cooperation staff looks forward to meeting you during our International Student Orientation and Registration.


Resident Visa and Alien Resident Certificate (ARC)

Resident Visa
A visa is an entry permit into a country. Foreign students enrolling in degree programs at NCCU should apply for resident visa with the purpose of study through the Taiwan Overseas Representative Office in order to enter Taiwan
For more information: Resident visa
“Alien Resident Certificate (ARC)” is your identity card in Taiwan. Foreigners holding resident visa or changing to resident visa in Taiwan should go to the service center of National Immigration Agency to apply for ARC within 15 days starting from the day after arrival in Taiwan or the next day of receiving resident visa in Taiwan. (Otherwise, the penalty will be $2,000-10,000 NT/$60-300 USD.).
For more information: ARC


Overseas Medical and Injury Insurance

Having adequate medical insurance is very important for you to stay healthy and happy here at NCCU. All new degree students are required by Taiwan regulations to carry overseas medical and injury insurance for at least 6 months coverage starting from the date when entering Taiwan. You are asked to show your insurance statement (must be in English) or National Health Insurance (NHI) card (if you are already insured) during OIC Registration Day on Sep5. If you do not carry overseas medical and injury insurance or it is invalid, you will need to purchase group medical insurance at Cashier Section (5th floor, Administration Building) on Registration Day.
For more information: Insurances


Foreign Degree Verification

You should have foreign diplomas and transcripts verified by the Taiwan Embassy/Representative Office in the country of the institution and show them on Registration Day. If the transcripts and diplomas (or graduation certificates) are not in Chinese or English, you should verify the original documents and the translation of the documents before you arrive in Taiwan. Please note that you will not be able to complete the registration procedure during the OIC Registration Day, unless you present all verified documents. Diploma and transcripts received in Taiwan are not required to verify.


Health Examination

For your protection, and for the protection of your fellow students, you are required to complete health examination within one month of the start of the semester (by Oct. 12 2017). We strongly recommend you to undergo on-campus examination to save your time and money.
