Academic fees and other payments for the Academic Year 2017

Tuition Reduction Program for privately financed international students

Rikkyo University reduces the tuition of privately financed international students who have “College Student” resident status after enrollment and who face financial difficulty in pursuing university education, irrespective of the entrance examination system. Students who want to have their tuition reduced must submit an application every year. The International Office verifies whether each applicant is eligible by confirming their “College Student” resident status, and examines the necessity of tuition reduction by reviewing the applicant’s financial situation.
The reduced rate for 2017 is 30% of the tuition (rounded down to the nearest 100 yen). The program details and reduced rate are subject to change from year to year. Students who have exceeded the standard term of study, or those who are on leave from their studies, will not be eligible for tuition reduction. For further details, please contact the International Office (Tel: +81-3-3985-2807).

Adoption of a sliding scale

Tuition and education enhancement fee are subject to change from year to year, based on a sliding scale. We consider the inflation rate, improvement of education and research conditions, etc., when revising the slide rate. We adopt the Consumer Price Index (CPI) released by the Ministry of Internal Affairs as the inflation rate, and regard the inflation rate as 0% if the CPI is less than 0%. The sliding scale has been temporarily suspended.
Experiment and practical training fees are revised annually based on actual expenses.
