1. For students entering the following College and Graduate Schools, the distribution and submission locations are different.
  • College of Arts and Sciences
  • Graduate School of Arts and Sciences
  • Graduate School of Mathematical Sciences
Please contact the office below for further information:
   Scholarship Fund Section, Student Affairs Division at the College of Arts and Sciences
   Komaba Campus, Administration Building 1st Floor, Counter #7
   Phone: +81 03-5454-6075,6076

2. Since the application procedure will be conducted in Japanese, international students who find it difficult to communicate in Japanese should make sure they are accompanied by someone who understands Japanese well.

3. Please note that applications after the application submission period has passed will not be accepted for any reason whatsoever.

4. Once the application is submitted, the payment of tuition (including payment by automatic direct debit) will be deferred until the results are determined. Please note that eligibility will be revoked if an applicant pays the fees before the results are determined.

5. There are two types of postponement of tuition payments: "deferred payment" and "installment payment." If the application of "deferred payment" is approved, the payment will be postponed until the end of February. Otherwise the "installment payment" is due on the 27th of each month until the end of March. Please note that the application form is different from that of tuition fee exemption.

6. Applicants who submitted applications for both the first and second half of 2020 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 September.
    (example: cases where the applicant completes the Master's program in August, and enters the Doctorate program in September)
  • Cases where students were expected to graduate or complete the program but are still enrolled beyond the program duration.

*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 for exemption or deferred payment for the first half 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.


7. The schedule for tuition exemption and deferred payment of tuition for the Second half of the 2020 academic year will be posted to this website around August 2020.

8. Students who applied for a tuition fee exemption last year (academic year 2019) and who wish to receive an exemption this year also must reapply. (Results of the application for exemption are not automatically carried over to the following year.)

9. If students or the persons responsible for the payment of their school expenses have been affected by the Great East Japan Earthquake or the Kumamoto Earthquake (April 2016) they should make sure to contact the Scholarship Team regarding their circumstances.

For inquiries regarding admission fee and tuition exemptions or deferred payment, please contact the Scholarship Team of the Student Scholarship and Welfare Group (section in charge of tuition exemptions) (Phone: +81 03-5841-2547, 2548 Email: syougaku.adm@gs.mail.u-tokyo.ac.jp).

* Please submit your application as soon as possible since the office tends to become very crowded as the deadline for application submission approaches.
