Live in Japan, Get an American Education, and Take It Anywhere.
As a fully-accredited U.S. university, Lakeland Japan offers an authentic American education in the heart of downtown Tokyo. Get the best of both worlds, and more–joining students from around the world in an earnest commitment to learning, while getting the most from living in Japan.
After graduating with an Associate of Arts degree, transfer to a four-year college or university is usually easier than trying to apply as a Freshman–and Lakeland's tuition is genuinely affordable. What’s more, graduating with an A.A. degree from Lakeland Japan assures transfer to our home campus, with a minimum $5000 scholarship–and with good enough grades, a $8000-per-year scholarship to make Lakeland’s already-low tuition hard to beat.
