・Starting from 2020 academic year, we will change the application process for exemptions from the enrollment fee and tuition for graduate students.
・Printed application documents will not be distributed. Visit the website to download the necessary documents for your application.
・The decision on your application may differ from the decisions on your previous applications even if your financial circumstances have not changed.
・As before, decisions on applications for exemption from tuition will be one of the following: “full exemption,” “50% exemption,” or “disapproved.” Decisions on applications for exemption from the enrollment fee will be one of the following: “50% exemption,” “only postponement approved,” or “disapproved.” When the decision is “50% exemption,” “only postponement approved,” or “disapproved,” you must pay the designated amount by the designated date.
・Whether you are in the master’s degree program or doctoral degree program, if your period of study at the Institute does not exceed the standard duration of study, the decision on your application will be valid during that academic year. For example, you do not need to apply for exemption at the fall application if you applied at the spring application.
・Students who will pay the enrollment fee and/or tuition in full may also apply for postponement of payment.
In either of the following cases, half the enrollment fee can be waived on request following review of the application:
A student who is deemed unable to pay the enrollment fee due to financial difficulties but are proven to have outstanding academic performance.
Conditions for the exemption and application process are the same as in “Exemption from Enrollment Fee” (see above) when students who will pay the enrollment fee in full apply for postponement of payment. When postponement is approved, the enrollment fee must be paid by the end of September (tentative) for students starting in April, and by the end of January for students starting in September.
If any of the following cases, the full amount or half the tuition can be waived on request following review of the application:
