Diploma and Required High School Credits
TUJ requires that students hold a diploma from an accredited high school with the following distribution of courses.
Students are required to have earned a minimum of 16 units in academic subjects from the Subject Area array below. Those who lack some of the required high school credits may be admitted on an exception basis.
|Mathematics (College Preparatory)||3-4|
|Foreign Language (Same Language or Culture)||2-3|
|History or Social Studies||3|
|Other (Elective) Courses||5|
Note: Please note that TUJ urges students to take additional high school credits in mathematics and a foreign language. This is especially important for those who plan to major in mathematics, science, engineering or language.
No student shall be matriculated into TUJ as a freshman with a cumulative high school GPA of less than 2.0 (of 4.0) in all courses. A 2.0 average is the equivalent of a C average in most letter-grading systems.
Students with non-Japanese / non-American secondary school qualifications should consult with TUJ Admissions.
