If you already have a account, you want to register for a mid-term test (중간평가) or comprehensive test (종합평가), skip step 1-2 and start from step 3c.

Step 1: Visit, and click (1) 회원로그인 at the top right corner. Then, click (2) 사회통합프로그램 and choose (3) 단계배정

3) Visit your nearby immigration office or Call the number 1345 during office hours to get support for submitting your TOPIK certificate online.

Step 3: 

a) If you select the option 1 (start from level 0), you will be redirected to the my page 마이페이지, which can be accessed by clicking the 마이페이지 button at the top right corner at any time.

Now all you need to do is to wait until your application is approved. After that, you can apply for level 0 class. 

For details about class registration, please refer to this post:

Step 4: At the new webpage (, fill in all required information to create an account at the test site. 

- When you fill in your address, click 주소찾기 then type your address in Korean. Then select your address from a list. 

- If you can't type Korean character, use to support you.

- After you filled in your phone number, click 인증번호 전송 (receive security number) to receive a 6-digit code on your phone to verify your information. The message will appear like this:
귀하의 휴대폰 인증번호는 613940 입니다.
Enter the code in the box, and click 인증하기 (verify). If the code is correct, you will see this message 인증을 완료하였습니다 (verification is completed).

- You can skip to select nationality 국적 and visa 체류가격, but don't forget to tick in the last box to receive information visa SMS. It is very helpful for registering the test and class later.

- Finally, click 확인 button at the end of the page to finish creating an account at the test site

Step 5: You will be redirected to the login page. Fill in your id and password 

Step 6: After signed in, you can see several options. Select 'level test' 사전평가 as below pictures, then click 'next step' 다음단계.

Step 7

b) select your 'test location' 평가지역 (choose the location nearest to you)

'Method of payment' 결재선택  > select 'Virtual Account' 가상계좌이체 (you transfer money to a virtual account) > then click 'Pay' 결재하기. 

Selecting 'Virtual account' and then transfer the test fee later (within 24 hours) is the fastest way to make sure you get your spot. 

Your seat might be taken when choosing to pay using "credit card" or "real-time transfer" because it takes time to install security software and type in your card or bank info.
(Note: this picture was taken in 2020 when the test fee was 30,000 won)

Step 8: Print your receipt or save it on your phone when going for testing.

Korean Topik said...

The class location is up to you. They will give you several locations and time schedule. You choose 1 among those.

Unknown said...

I am not sure how it is changed at the present. Please ask for support at this facebook group.

Hello. I cannot select Test Location (no tickboxes). Does this mean the application has ended?

Korean Topik said...

That means all slots have been occupied.

RoseVega said...

Hello~ It won’t let me change the date or even select location. I can’t take the test during a weekday and it has me taking it on a Tuesday. What do I do?

RoseVega said...

I just realized I read it wrong about the date; but it still won’t let me choose a test location.

Korean Topik said...

Mostly likely all test location are full. You have to wait for the next test. At present all kiip tests are on hold due to the recent booming of corona virus in Korea.

Unknown said...

hi.. i keep checking for the level o (zero) class. But every-time i check its always shows "no data"...

Every month have level zero class or not?

Korean Topik said...

please post your question in our group.

The mean brunette said...

Hi, thanks for your article it is so helpful! After applying for 0 level, we have to wait until we see the level 0 available on the board with the other levels or it is different?

Korean Topik said...

Yes, you have to wait until the new semester starts. Since level 0 is very short, you can jump to level 1 right after finishing level 0. Make sure to check available classes frequently in next year January.

stressed said...

After I clicked the pay button and put my information in for the virtual pay, this gray box appeared with my information. Once I confirmed that, I was sent to the homepage back waiting again. I never got an email confirmation. Did I register or do I have to do it again?

(I can't confirm on my account because too many people are on the website...)

Korean Topik said...

Most likely you haven't successfully applied for the test. Since you were sent back to the homepage, you probably passed the time limitation of 5 minutes.

Online Farce said...

There is only one location to chose... Jeju. But Jeju is a bit inconveniently located from Seoul... Is there any way to take the test within 100km of Seoul?

UNKNOWN said...

I failed the kiip level 3 test (50 points). Do I have to retake the whole class again or can I just retake the test?
And if I have to retake the test which steps do I follow?

Korean Topik said...

In the case of kiip level 3, you can't just retake the test again. You must retake the class. Once the retaken class is complete, you will get promoted to the level 4 without the need to retake the level 3 test.

someone said...

thanks for the information. I want to apply for pre-test, I just checked the website, but there is no option or anything else in 사전평가, it says 접수 가능한 평가 일정이 없습니다. what should I do now? there are two options for pre-test, one is 사전평가, the other one is cbt사전평가. which one should I take?
test round no.4 which the application period is 06.07 (Tue) ~ 06.13 (Mon), is the best one for me, am I eligible to apply for this test?
and the last question, what time the application will be start? at 9:00am?
I am so sorry to asking too many questions, I am not in a good condition regarding my visa and visa extension, it's a little bit complicated so I need to apply for pre-test asap and attend kiip courses.

Korean Topik said...

1) From 2022, all pre-tests (사전평가) are CBT-based tests. You must select CBT사전평사 when applying for the test.
2) Yes, you are eligible for test as long as you have a valid foreigner registration card and is staying in Korea. Make sure to register for an account in both socinet and kiiptest before the test application period opens.
3) The test starts at 9:00am. Be prepared! The test slots are always less than the demands.

ddd said...

Hi, I have registered for the pre-test exam, and I chose a virtual account. but where can I get an account to transfer money and pay? it is written that you can take an account on 'chumun valyo page'. but I couldn't find it. please help me!

Korean Topik said...

From the "applications & registration" tab, select "Confirmation/cancellation or refunds". Then you can see your applied test. Click on the test and scroll down until you see "method of payment". You can find the virtual account info there.
