English Subjects

For Japanese-basis students, the appropriate curriculum and starting level of English language courses will be based on the results of the placement test taken at the time of enrollment. The curriculum types include the English Standard Track (24 credits) and the English Advanced Track (12 credits). Note that once curriculum types are set, no changes can be made. Students who wish to apply for transfer admissions, please refer to the transfer admissions page.

  • Until all required English courses for the language track are completed, the University will continue to automatically register for and assign students to classes. When retaking the same course a student will not necessarily be registered for the same instructor or class, and this registration may not be changed or cancelled.
