Welcome to TUJ Undergraduate!

By becoming a TUJ student, you are joining a student body of over 1,841 undergraduate students and a worldwide alumni network. You will also become a part of the larger Temple University community, with campuses in Philadelphia, Rome, and around the globe.

Our undergraduate programs at TUJ includes:

  • Japan Admitted (JA) students
    Students directly admitted to the Temple system at TUJ with many seeking a degree from Temple University and intending to graduate from the Japan Campus. Bridge Program JAs, conditionally admitted students developing academic English skills and eligible to take limited undergraduate coursework, are also included.
  • Study Abroad (SA) students
    Students from the Temple University Main Campus or other US universities who stay at TUJ for one or two semesters through an exchange program. For more information on becoming an SA student studying at TUJ, visit the Education Abroad website at Temple University Main Campus
  • Temple Japan Entry Year (TJEY) students
    Students who have directly applied and been accepted to Temple University Main Campus and take advantage of our international presence by spending their first year at our Japan Campus. For more information on becoming a TJEY student, visit the Temple Japan Entry Year website.

Once you are accepted to TUJ as a JA student, your primary point of contact will be the Office of Student Services and Engagement (OSSE). You will receive contact information and steps to complete your transition to TUJ shortly after your acceptance.

1. Activate your TUPORTAL and TUMAIL

TUportal gives registered students a single sign-on gateway to Temple's online services including Temple email (TUmail). Within one week of acceptance, students should receive their Accessnet login information to activate TUportal in an email from Temple Main Campus Information Technology Services. 

If there are any issues, contact tujhelp@tuj.temple.edu with your full name and student ID.

2. Pay the ENROLLMENT DEPOSIT

Students accepted to TUJ after January 1, 2022, are required to make a non-refundable ¥20,000 Enrollment Deposit to confirm their spot. This deposit will be credited towards their tuition. Instructions to complete the enrollment deposit are sent in the 'TUJ Admission Result'.

Enrollment Deposit Deadline
Starting Semester First Deadline Final Deadline
Summer March 1 May 9
Fall June 1 August 8
Spring October 1 December 1

Students who do not complete the enrollment deposit by the final deadline will have their admission cancelled.  

3. Wait for more information about ARRIVAL AND ORIENTATION

New Student Orientation will take place online. In the interest of fairness to all students, it is university policy to not offer advising on transfer credits or academic plans before Orientation. 

For transfer students, after your enrollment deposit has been received by TUJ, an academic advisor will be in touch with you.
