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.

If a student will be withdrawn during any semester, parents should notify the School in writing of the last expected day of attendance.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 is an option available to individual families who are paying the annual tuition, but not to companies and other organizations responsible for covering educational expenses. A carrying charge will be added to cover administrative costs. If you have any questions regarding payment, please contact the Accounting Office (Ext. 333).

Corporate Contribution Plan

Corporations 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 contribution program is earnestly requested.
