3. Precautions


1. For applicants outside Japan, please ask someone in Japan to act as a domestic proxy to submit your application in your place during the application period.
    In that case, please make sure that the proxy attaches his/her identification and a proxy letter (with your signature).
    We cannot accept the application documents directly from overseas.

2. Once the application is submitted, the payment of the relevant fee will be deferred until the results are determined. Please note that eligibility will be revoked if an applicant pays them before the results are determined.

3. Applicants who applied for both the first and second half of 2022 during the application period for the first half do not have to apply for the second half again. 
    However, students to whom any of the following conditions apply must resubmit their applications during the period for the second half.

  • Cases in which the information (family, study or household budget) provided in the application on April 1 has changed by October 1.
  • Cases where students have changed programs in October.
    (example: cases where the applicant completes the Master's program in September, and enters the Doctorate program in October, cases where the applicant completes the Junior Division in September, and enters the Senior Division in October)
  • Cases where students were expected to graduate or complete the program but are still enrolled beyond the program duration.
 ※Please refer to "2. Application forms" above and prepare the necessary documents for reapplication.

4. In the case that applications for both the first and second half are submitted together, selection results will be determined for each half separately. Therefore, even if the application or exemption is approved, the result for the second half will not necessarily be the same. Please confirm the selection result for the second half as well.

5. Applicants who are suddenly facing financial difficulties due to the spread of the novel coronavirus / COVID-19, please check this link. If you are eligible, you are able to submit this form.

6. If you want to withdraw your application, please sign in with your UTokyo Account and fill out this form.

7. If you want to continue your tuition fee exemption, you must apply each academic year. Please note that the results of the application for this academic year will not be automatically carried over to the following academic year. 
    Those who wish to receive tuition fee exemption for the next academic year (April 2023 – March 2024) must reapply.
