5. Non-refundable Application Fee of ¥10,500
For non-degree-seeking students applying for summer semester only, the non-refundable application fee is ¥16,500. TUJ does not sponsor student visas for summer-only students, as many nationalities are eligible for a three-month tourist visa. Applicants should check the visa policy for their own country. If you are from a TUJ-affiliated school, the application fee is waived.
