Entrance fee and tuition

Tuition Exemption

Undergraduates and graduate students with excellent academic records and who are in need of financial assistance are eligible to be considered for exemptions from between half the tuition fee and the whole amount. Applications for tuition exemption are evaluated by the university. Please check the deadline on the bulletin boards and the "Campus Information" section of the University website.

International students may not always be successful in their applications for tuition exemption. Therefore, students should prepare sufficient funds for studying in Japan and manage their money carefully. Tuition exemption is not granted to research students, auditing students or credited auditors.
