Abstract
This article examines the migration patterns of Korean international students in the United States; and their academic performance proficiency based on different characteristics of Korean international students. This article adopts the concepts of different forms of capital developed by the sociologist Pierce Bourdieu in order to examine the correlation between the amounts of different capital and Korean international students' academic performance. It describes that there are significant differences in Korean international students' academic performance based on the different economic, social, and cultural capital they acquire. It describes that different amounts of acquired capital do not only affect Korean international students' academic performances but also their perception into seeking academic help.
