Matriculation Fee for Degree-seeking Students

An applicant admitted to TUJ as a degree-seeking (matriculated) student needs to pay a non-refundable matriculation fee of ¥434,100. This is a one-time fee for all new matriculating students directly entering the Undergraduate Program. Once admitted as a matriculated student into the Temple University system, a student cannot change his or her status to non-degree-seeking (non-matriculated).

A non-degree-seeking student may take up to 30 credits at TUJ. Non-degree-seeking students may petition to become a matriculated degree-seeking student any time before reaching 30 credits. However, please note that the matriculation fee for TUJ students switching from non-matriculated to matriculated status is ¥496,800.
