Exemptions from Enrollment Fee and Tuition for Graduate Students

Updated on March 31, 2020

To prevent the further spread of the novel coronavirus infection

To prevent the further spread of the novel coronavirus infection, we are currently considering the ways to submit application documents of new international students (primary).

We will post the information on this page as soon as the details are determined.

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.
