The purpose of this study was to analyze character levels and educational requirements based on the main pillars of the ‘Character Education Promotion Act (2015)’ as it pertains to college students. The character levels of college students were assessed by the scale developed by Lee et al. (2013). The college students’ educational requirements for courtesy, filial piety, honesty, responsibility, respect, thoughtfulness, communication, and cooperation, stemming from the main pillars of the ‘Character Education Promotion Act’ were examined. The operational test was administered to 412 college students. By extension, data were analyzed using reliability test, t- test, and F-test. In an effort to calibrate the character levels, the results displayed significance differences depending on the seniority of the grade in the cognitive and behavioral domains, whereas no significance differences were found in the affective domains. In the behavioral domains, seniors showed lower grades. With the exception of thoughtfulness, seniors reported higher levels of educational requirements for courtesy, filial piety, honesty, responsibility, respect, communication, and cooperation than 1st and 2nd year students.
