Graduate Tuition and Fees

At Meiji University, we have a tuition assistance program (reduction or exemption) for privately financed international students. The purpose of this program is to reduce the financial burden imposed on those students and help them continue in school. Maximum rate of tuition assistance is different according to GPA. (Please refer to Application Guideline for the Tuition Assistance (Reduction) Program for Privately Financed International Students.)
For further details about application requirements and the aforementioned tuition assistance program, please contact International Student Office.
