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.

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.
