Long-term Completion System (for working students)

For working students (including self-employment and temporary employment), mentally or physically disabled students, or those who give birth or need to take care of family members such as children or the elderly, this system allows students to take a course according to a scheduled completion plan and complete a Master’s Degree Program in 3 years or 4 years or a Doctoral Degree Program in a period of 4 years or 5 years which is extended beyond the standard term of completion years (Master’s Degree Program for 2 years, Doctoral Degree Program for 3 years).

Students accepted under this system (Long-term Completion students) are allowed to pay the Tuition by dividing the total tuition of the standard term of completion years, from the viewpoint of reduction of students' burden of payment.

Ex) Long-term completion period of 4 years for the Master’s Degree Program
Regular: Tuition (Per Year) 535,800 yen × 2 years = 1,071,600 yen
Long-term Completion: Total amount of tuition 1,071,600 yen for the standard 2 years is divided by 4 years → 267,900 yen per year
