Q & A (School Fees)

Q. When will I be billed for the University Fees if I take a leave of absence?
A.Billing to those who have taken a leave of absence is in the middle of the month following the approval of the leave of absence. Please pay the Enrollment and Other Fees for Leave of Absence Status by the deadline as we will bill you with the deadline.

Q. Can I pay the University Fees by bank account transfer, ATM, or Internet banking?

We accept payment by ATM or Internet banking only when you have no other options. When making the payment, be sure to enter the 12-digit reference number before the Student Name (shown in katakana) on the bank transfer request form sent by the university so that we can confirm your identity. For details, please refer to the document attached when you receive the bank transfer request form.
If identity is not confirmed, it can be assumed that your University Fees have not been paid.

Q. If I become eligible for the installment payments, how much is each installment?
A.One half of the School Fees for the semester is collected in the first and second installment. Among the Other Fees, the Parents Association Fee and theTeacher-Parent Contact Association Fee are collected in the first installment, and the Alumni Association Fee is collected in the second installment.

Q. Is the Alumni Association Fee charged to a student who is on a leave of absence, or to a student repeating a year?
A.The Alumni Association Fee is collected equally from both current students and those on a leave of absence, as well as those repeating a year, as follows:
For Undergraduate students, in the fourth year, the Doshisha Alumni Association Fee is collected from all students across faculties, and the Faculty Graduates Association Fee is collected from the students in the Faculties of Law, Economics, Commerce, Science and Engineering, and Psychology.
The Seihokai Fee is collected from the Master’s students in Law in the second year after admission, and from the Doctoral students in law in the third year after admission (except for the students who have completed the undergraduate or graduate program at Doshisha University).
The Soseikai Fee is collected from the Master’s students in Policy and Management in the second year after admission.
DBS Network is collected from students in the Business School in the second year after admission.
The Kambaikai Fee is collected from the Law School students who are in the two-year program in the second year, and those who are in the three-year program in the third year.
When those students were not enrolled in the collection year due to withdrawal, etc., the Alumni Association Fee is collected with other University Fees after re-enrollment.

Q. Are the University Fees collected from parents of the students?
A.For undergraduate students, the payment slip is sent to their parents’ address, while for graduate students, the payment slip is sent to the student’s address. If you wish to change the sending address to that of your own or parents’, please apply from the application form.

Q. Where should I go to report a change of address due to moving, etc.?
A.Please visit "DUET" system or the office of the faculty / graduate school to which you belong and report a change of address. Note to undergraduate students: Besides reporting your own change of address, also be sure to report any change of address of your parents to ensure that you receive the banktransfer request form.

A.Please contact the School Fees Management Center (075-606-5157) to have it reissued.
The payment slip will be sent again to the address registered at the university. It is not possible to send the slip to a different address.
