In principle APM required subjects are automatically registered by the university for students in their language of enrollment. In other words, English-basis students take classes in English and Japanese-basis students take classes in Japanese. However, English-basis students can apply to take APM required subjects in Japanese if they meet the requirements. If you would like to apply for this, please check the application guidelines below.

*Not applicable for 2011 curriculum students.

Result Result will be announced on Campus Terminal before the start of Course Registration period A.
Course Registration If application is approved the university will register the course before Course Registration period A.

Applications may not be accepted if:

  • You don’t meet the conditions listed above
  • If required subject that you wish to take in Japanese overlaps with a subject automatically registered for you by the university
  • You fail required subjects registered for you by the university in the previous semester. Reregistration of these courses will be prioritized over your application. If reregistering these courses plus the new course will cause you to exceed the max credit registration limit for the semester, your application will be rejected.

Important Notes

  • Once an application has been approved it cannot be cancelled.
  • The university registers students in their designated required classes before Course Registration period A.
  • Once an application is approved and the required subject is registered in your opposite-language by the university, you cannot change classes even if there is a conflict with another class you wish to take
  • Once an application has been approved you cannot choose to take that course in your enrollment-basis language
  • Applications are only approved for the following semester (If you wish to continue to take APM required subjects in your opposite-language in the future, you must apply again before the start of each semester.)
