Financial Aid for Degree Seeking Students

1. Tuition Relief

In acknowledgement of the financial burden faced by privately financed international students, Tokyo Kasei University has established a tuition relief system to help students continue the pursuit of their studies.
In accordance with University regulations, when an application is submitted and eligibility for relief is approved by the school, part of the tuition fee will be waived. In such cases tuition fees will generally be reduced by around 30%.
