Can I apply using a PC at my workplace?
There are no restrictions from the university on what kind of PC you should use when applying for the admission as long as it is connected to the Internet and can print documents such as application guidelines and application forms. However, you should be careful of your office PC's settings as registration includes the input of your important personal information.
Can I apply using my free email account (Yahoo Mail, Gmail, etc.)?
There are no restrictions from the university on what kind of email account you should use as long as it can receive notification emails automatically sent by our server at the time of application or after payment of screening fee. However, there are cases where you won't receive such automatic emails as some email companies mistake them as spam or virus-infected emails.
Moreover, undelivered emails may not arrive to our email center. In that case, be informed that our email center cannot learn about the failure of your email's delivery.
This is a problem on the e-mail provider's system or the mailer's (PC and mobile) configuration, so we are afraid that our email center cannot provide solutions to solve the problem.
Can I use my mobile phone's email account for registration?
Do not use your mobile phone's email account for registration. Only use email accounts that can be viewed on your PC.
The button won't respond even if I clicked it, or the contents on the pull-down menu won't display.
Even if I clicked the button, the contents won't properly display on the screen.
See "Things to keep in mind when configuring a browser" above to know if cookies are enabled.
Also, know if your browser is included to the list of recommended browsers.
I realized that there are input contents mistake after application and registration.
Use the contact information included to the Application Guidelines.
I haven't received an notification email on completion of registration and application after I did them.
Depending on email traffic and load in the email server, it may take time for the notification email to arrive in your inbox. You might have entered a wrong email address if you still haven't received the email. Use the（ Check Application）function to know if you have correctly provided your details.
I want to know if my details have been registered because my PC crashed before I am done applying and registering.
If the message "Online application completed" appears on the window after clicking the "Submit" button, this means that your details have been registered. If your PC crashes while on the applicant registration window or the confirm input details window, you will have to re-enter your details as since they have not been registered. If you have your email address registered, check your inbox to see if you have received a notification email on the completion of your registration.
I cannot check the contents of the application I did on the Internet with the "Check Application" function.
Carefully check your Examination Voucher (applicant's copy) printed at the time of application, or your application confirmation email to see if you have correctly entered your birthday, your name and reference number.
You may also check your reference number by clicking "Forgot your reference number?" in the Application Confirmation window.
Does the payment of the screening fee include additional charges?
You will be charged 900 JPY as a payment handling fee.
I haven't received a notification email on the successful payment of the screening fee, so I want to know if you got my payment.
See your application (payment) details in the "Confirm Application" function.
