3. Precautions

1. For students entering the following College and Graduate Schools, the office in charge is Komaba Campus.
  • 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. If it is difficult for you to apply in person, you may ask a 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).

3. 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.

4. 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.

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

6. Since the number of students applying for exemption is increasing year by year, the number of students who are able to receive a full exemption is decreasing. Especially, the possibility of receiving an admission fee exemption is very low because of the low budget. So please be sure to prepare enough money beforehand, in order to pay those fees.

7. 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.
8. 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 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.

9. 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.

 

4. Deferred Payment of Admission and Tuition Fees 


Once the application is submitted, the payment of the relevant fee will be deferred until the results are determined (by the end of January).
If you need more deferment, please contact us by email.
 

5. Contact information ※We are not in charge of inquiries regarding normal payment of admission and tuition fees. This office is in charge of exemption work only.
