Tuition Fees and Scholarships

Tuition Fees

1. Payment of Tuition

Excepting those with Japanese government scholarships, all international students must pay their tuition fees by the due date.
Undergraduate and graduate students must pay for the first semester’s tuition on the day of enrollment. The other semester’s fees will be automatically withdrawn from the student’s bank account the following April or October.

Research students must pay all tuition fees up front the first day of school (or, at the latest, by the end of the first school month). Partial payment is not accepted.

Tuition Fee Due Dates

First Semester (Apr-Sept) Apr 30 (or sooner if the 30th is a Saturday, Sunday, or holiday)
Second Semester (Oct-Mar) Oct 31 (or sooner if the 31st is a Saturday, Sunday, or holiday)

Note: Students who fail to pay their tuition fees in spite of being reminded will be expelled.

2. Tuition Relief

Undergraduate or graduate students with excellent grades who find themselves having difficulty paying for tuition due to financial reasons may be eligible to apply for tuition relief. Information regarding tuition relief is posted on-campus. For more details, please contact the Student Affairs Division in Building 19. Application forms for tuition relief are available through the Student Affairs Division.

Depending on the results of the selection process, a student receiving notification of 50% tuition relief or no relief will be informed shortly afterward of the total tuition amount that must be paid by the deadline. Students who do not pay this amount by the due date set forth will be dismissed from NITech.

*Research students and other non-degree students are not eligible for tuition relief.

Note:
International students who run into unexpected difficulty in paying tuition but qualify for a guarantor might be able to secure a loan from the International Student Support Association.

Scholarships

1. Japanese Government Scholarships for International Students

International students with a Japanese government scholarship receive a monthly stipend. It is important that you open a Japan Post Bank account at the post office as soon as you arrive in Japan. Opening an account at the Nagoya University Hospital Post Office takes little time, so please do so as soon as possible.

In order to receive your scholarship funds, there is paperwork at the International Student Affairs Office that you must sign on the first of every month (or the second or third if the first falls on a Saturday, Sunday, or holiday). Please do not forget to do this every month.

If you temporarily leave Japan and are away for the entire month, you will be unable to receive your scholarship money for that month.

2. Scholarships for Privately Financed Students

Privately financed students enrolled in, or planning to enroll in, graduate degree programs are eligible to apply for a limited number of Japanese government scholarships each April.
Every September, university presidents and faculty deans are notified with regard to candidates. Scholarship recipients receive both a monthly stipend and travel expenses for returning home.
