Certain university departments (approx. 40 in total) allow students to commence programs in the second semester (in September or October.) The Information Center maintains a list of universities that accept student enrollments at times other than April. Inquire to the center for further information.

Each university has its own application procedure. In general, however, the documents that are required are as follows:
1.  Application form
2. Personal history
3. Certificate of senior high-school graduation
(or anticipated graduation)
4. Senior high-school transcript
5. Letter of recommendation from the principal or a teacher at senior high school
6. Medical certificate
7. Photographs
8. Certificate of Alien Registration (if the applicant is residing in Japan)
9. (Guarantor-related documents)

Application deadlines, procedures, application period and application documents differ by university and department, so you will have to check directly with the university you wish to attend for specific details. The earliest deadlines are in August of the previous year. When applying from overseas, bear in mind the time needed for postal mail delivery so that you can meet the deadline.

The Information Center maintains a list of institutes that give entrance permission before arriving in Japan. Inquire to the center for further information.
