Placement Tests

If you are taking courses in the Japanese Language Program, please ensure that you take the placement test conducted before the semester begins. Students who have taken courses in the Japanese Language Program during the previous semester, and those who are continuing the program, do not need to take a placement test. If this applies to you, please complete the necessary procedures for continuing your study at the International Affairs Division.

Course Decisions

The results of the placement test conducted before the start of the semester determine which course(s) you may attend. If you feel that the level of the course(s) assigned to you is unsuitable, please consult with a teacher in the Japanese Language Education Department within one week of the start of the semester. Changing courses requires the permission of a full-time faculty member in the Japanese Language Education Department.

Attendance Requirement

Attendance of at least two thirds of the total number of lessons is required to pass a class.

Grading

Grading methods vary by subject. Please make sure to review the syllabus.
A grade of less than 60% counts as a failing grade.

Continuing Course Participation

Students who pass will be able to take courses one level higher during the next semester.
Students who do not pass will only be able to take the same courses during the next semester.

Issuing of Transcripts

Transcripts of grades received for courses in the Japanese Language Program are generally not issued. However, if a transcript is necessary, please indicate the reason the transcript is being requested, as well as the intended recipient of the transcript, then consult with a full-time faculty member of the Japanese Language Education Department.
