Bank Fees and Charges

This includes the refunding of financial aid.
Important Note about TUpay and TUportal Account Summary
Please note that TUpay on the TUportal is only for main campus students, and cannot be used to make payments for Temple University, Japan Campus tuition or fees.
Please also note that the TUportal account summary information is not connected to TUJ, and you will not be able to check your balance through the site. All TUJ account and payment information is sent via the student's TUmail account.
Easy Payment Plan (EPP)
To assist students with the costs associated with studying, TUJ offers an installment plan called Easy Payment Plan. Current students will receive the details about how to apply for the Easy Payment Plan via temple.edu e-mail account with the tuition statement. Specific details of the plan for individual semesters can be found under Tuition Billing and Payment Schedules.
1098T Tax Information (U.S. Students)
Please be aware that TUJ does not currently issue the IRS Form 1098T. Students may request a payment history record in lieu of this; this details all payments made in the period requested and is only available in Japanese yen. Please consult your tax professional regarding the use of this in claiming any education related deduction or credit.
Add and Drop Period – First 2 Weeks (See the semester specific Academic Calendar for details)
Tuition and fees are non-refundable and payment is required unless course(s) are dropped within the first two weeks of the semester (add/drop period). If you decide not to attend any courses in a particular semester, you must drop all your courses before the end of the add/drop period. If you do not, you are liable for the full amount due for the semester.
Withdrawal Period (See the semester specific Academic Calendar for details)
Students who withdraw from courses (withdrawal period) remain financially responsible for the credits and will not receive a refund. However, students may petition their advisor for an Excused Withdrawal (EW) due to a serious documented extenuating circumstance that prohibits continued enrollment in all courses for the term and may be eligible for a refund.
Making a Refund Request
Information on the required documentation for a refund request can be accessed by students in the Japan Campus section of the TUportal (Japan Campus>>Administrative Departments>>Bursar’s Office>>Refunds). Students can also contact our office directly as needed.
The exchange rate for financial aid is set and confirmed at two specific stages:
Initially a target exchange rate is set for an upcoming semester. This rate is set well before the semester starts, so it is subject to change based on the exchange rate at the time of financial aid disbursement at main campus.
First Disbursement Rate
Provided the exchange rate at the time of the first disbursement date or any subsequent disbursement date falls within +/- 3% of the target rate, the target rate will be used. If the exchange rate at the time of the disbursement or subsequent disbursement date is greater than +/- 3% of the target exchange rate, a new rate will be set. This new rate will then be used on any subsequent disbursement dates throughout the semester provided the prevailing rate on the subsequent disbursement dates is within +/- 3% of the new rate.
Further information on financial aid can be found here.
Financial holds are placed on student accounts when payments (full or easy payment plan payments) are not received by the due dates, or if a student has an outstanding balance on his/her account. A financial hold will preclude the student from being able to register for courses in future semesters, add or drop classes if already registered, withdraw from classes, take advantage of certain University privileges, or obtain official University documents including transcripts, enrollment confirmation, or diplomas.
