Study in Japan Acceptance, cost & payments

Acceptance schedule

Students accepted into the Summer Study in Japan program will be notified by email. An application will not be considered complete until the $1,500 initial deposit has been recorded by the Business Office in the Administration Building.

The application process will remain open until all spaces are filled. However, the earlier you apply and pay the deposit, the greater the certainty of your acceptance for the program. If you receive notification that you have been accepted into the program, you will be asked to confirm in writing that you are fully committed to participate in the program.

You should also make the first payment of $1,500 immediately. Please know that this deposit is not refundable.
