Tuition for Bridge Program

Tuition differs for students conditionally admitted to the Undergraduate Program as participants of the Bridge Program. Please see About the Bridge Program for details.

Admission Fee

Within one month of admission to TUJ, applicants are required to pay a ¥36,000 non-refundable admission fee. This fee confirms intention to enroll and secures a place at TUJ. Summer-only students are not required to pay the admission fee.

For Students Accepted for Spring 2020 Onward

The ¥36,000 Admission Fee will be replaced with a mandatory ¥36,000 Orientation Fee to be paid as part of the Advance Payment (visa-needed students) or as part of the first tuition invoice (non-visa-needed students)

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 ¥426,900. 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 ¥488,600.

For additional details regarding matriculation fees, please see the Matriculation Policy and Procedure page.

Prospective students applying for a Japanese student visa through TUJ must pay a non-refundable visa application fee of ¥20,600 as a part of the Advance Payment.
