University Fees

The admission fee is ¥282,000, which is to be paid when completing the admission procedures. The tuition fee is ¥535,800 per year. The first semester installment is ¥267,900, which is to be paid when completing the admission procedures and second semester installment during October.

Japan Student Services Organization

The Japan Student Services Organization (JASSO) has put in place a system of scholarship loans for students with both an outstanding academic record and character who are having trouble meeting the cost of their studies due to financial reasons.
