There is a program for those who fall under the following application qualifications to allow exemption of enrollment fee and tuition fee or to allow deferment the enrollment fee after selection based on each application. In principle, it is categorized as follows, a half enrollment fee exemption and a full/half/quarter-tuition fee exemption.
・Enrollment Fee Exemption Program
(a) Incoming post-graduate students who are recognized by the university as exhibiting outstanding academic performance, but cannot afford to pay the enrollment fee because of their economic circumstances, and (b) incoming undergraduate students under extenuating circumstances may apply for full or half exemption of the enrollment fee.
・Enrollment Fee Deferment Program
Incoming students who cannot afford to pay the enrollment fee by the deadline because of their economic circumstances and who are recognized by the university as exhibiting outstanding academic performance and incoming students under extenuating circumstances may apply for deferment of the enrollment fee. Deferment of the enrollment fee is a postponement of the payment period and not an exemption of the enrollment fee and, therefore, the full amount of the enrollment fee must be paid.
・Tuition Fee Exemption Program
Graduate students who are recognized by the university as exhibiting outstanding academic performance, but cannot afford to pay the tuition fee because of their economic circumstances may apply for half, full and quarter exemption of the tuition fee.
