Travel Programs

The cost of school trips varies and depends on the duration and location of the trip. With the exception of the grade 5 trip, Middle School Extended Campus Program and certain High School Exploration Program trips, the cost of curricular trips and travel for co-curricular programs is the responsibility of families. Pricing and payment deadlines will be published in advance of each trip.

Payment Policies & Programs

Tuition and fees are due and payable in full in yen (except application fee) upon receipt of the School's invoice.

Late Enrollment
For students enrolled after the school year commences, tuition and bus fees will be calculated based upon academic quarters. Attendance for any portion of a quarter (mid-semester) will necessitate payment for the entire quarter.

Refunds
If a student will be withdrawn during any semester, parents should notify the School in writing of the last expected day of attendance. This notification must be received by the first day of classes in August (if withdrawing during the first semester) or the first day of second semester (if withdrawing during the second semester) in order for a refund of tuition and bus fees to be made for any full academic quarter during which the student will not attend.

Delinquent Payments
In cases of financial delinquency, school policy prohibits class attendance and/or the release of grades, transcripts, or other records of attendance and performance.

Installment Payments
Payment of tuition and fees on an installment basis may be requested by individual families who are paying the annual tuition, but not by companies and other organizations responsible for covering educational expenses. A carrying charge will be added to cover administrative costs. If you would like more information, and/or wish to apply, please contact the Accounting Office at billing@asij.ac.jp.

Corporate Contribution Plan

Corporate Contribution PlanCorporations and organizations that provide educational benefits to their employees are asked to consider participating in the Corporate Contribution Program, a potentially cost effective alternative to paying school fees, tuition and the Japanese individual income taxes on these educational benefits.

The Board of Directors wants all parents and organizations to be aware that tuition does not cover the full cost of educating a student at ASIJ. Consequently, tuition and fees would be significantly higher were it not for contributions and other non-tuition income. Therefore, your continued support of the School's voluntary annual fund is earnestly requested.  For more information on how to make your contribution, please see Support ASIJ.
