Auditing (undergraduate only)

To be open to society and promote lifetime learning, Ritsumeikan Asia Pacific University has established an auditing program to allow registered individuals (“auditors”) to take a certain number of lecture subjects in the colleges.

Auditors may sit examinations but they cannot receive credits. Even persons who would not normally meet university entry-level requirements are able to take courses at Ritsumeikan Asia Pacific University through the auditing system. Under this system, anyone with an interest in courses may apply to become an auditor.

Notes on the Auditing System:
  • Auditors cannot enroll in language or seminar classes
  • Auditors do not receive credit for courses
Registration Fee      50,000yen
Auditor Fees (per credit)          48,000yen

*1) Registration Fees must be paid each semester.
*2) Auditor fees are reviewed when tuition fees are adjusted.
*3) Applicants must pay a Screening Fee of 10,000yen at the time of application in addition to the above fees.
*4) Please be aware that once payment has been made we are unable to return either the screening fee or the auditor fee for any reason.
