Below are tentative information. They will be fully updated at a later date.
Short-term international students accepted under inter-university exchange student agreements will not be charged tuition. But this depends on agreements concerning the mutual exchange of students.Confirm your eligibility before applying online.

You must:
1. Be currently enrolled at a non-Japanese academic institution with which Sophia University has a student exchange agreement.

2. Obtain official exchange student status from your study abroad advisor. (only those students who have been recommended by their home universities are eligible.)

3. Have your study abroad advisor to inform us of your approval as an exchange student by email. The email must be sent to

4.Meet the requirements for the Summer Session participant. See requirements page for details.
*Note : Exchange students’ official transcripts will be sent to their school.

The tuition wavier is not always applicable for your school in the Summer Sessions due to an imbalance in the number of regular exchange students between our institutions.
