If you are under 100% coverage for Post 9/11 benefits, the GI Bill will cover the orientation fee, tuition, matriculation fee, student activities fee, and facilities fee. If you are not under 100% coverage, you will be expected to pay the difference in fees. Fees not covered by the GI Bill are the application fee, visa application fee (if under TUJ's student visa-sponsorship), housing fee (if staying in university housing), and any late enrollment or withdrawal fees incurred.
Yes. American citizens and green card holders are able to use U.S. Federal Financial Aid.
Yes, it is possible for veterans or active military personnel to transfer their educational benefits to their children/dependents. The GI Bill Certificate of Eligibility (COE) needs to be issued in the student's name. Contact your VA office to find out how to transfer benefits.
While Temple University Main Campus participates in the Yellow Ribbon Program, TUJ is not eligible to participate in this program because of its location. For Post 9/11 GI Bill students with 100% coverage, however, full tuition, matriculation fee, and several other fees are covered by the GI Bill. Students with partial coverage are able to use federal financial aid. In addition, a payment plan is available at TUJ to pay the balance not covered by your GI Bill.
No, the admissions application and visa application fees are not covered by the GI Bill.
Please note that every GI Bill that TUJ receives may be under a different chapter, and different chapters have different conditions and benefits. It is best to consult with your VA directly on matters relating to living stipends and reimbursements.
Students using Post 9/11, for example, may receive an annual book stipend of up to $1,000 per year with the Post-9/11 GI Bill. This stipend will be paid at the beginning of each term. It is paid proportionately based on the number of credits taken by each student at $41 per credit hour.
Again, please consult with the VA directly on the benefits that apply to your situation. TUJ only certifies the paperwork that shows you are a student.
No, you do not have to stay in the dorms for your first semester. However, if you are coming to TUJ from outside of Japan, you will need to stay in TUJ housing (dorms or a TUJ-arranged homestay) for your first semester. Please refer to Housing Requirements for Newly Accepted Students.
As an international branch campus, TUJ falls under the international rate for BAH. Consult your VA office directly for any questions regarding your specific benefits.
