We offer a four-year degree pathway that can be completed entirely at the Tokyo campus, or by starting here and transferring to Lakeland University Wisconsin or Virginia Wesleyan University in the United States.
Students have the option of completing their degrees in the U.S. at Virginia Wesleyan University or Lakeland University’s campus in Wisconsin. This unique partnership provides students with both short-term and long-term study abroad opportunities, and the ability
to achieve their academic goals while immersing themselves in American culture.
We strive to make transferring as easy and affordable as possible, and will do everything we can to make our already-low-tuition hard to beat. Through our common tuition, students will pay the same amount no matter where they choose to study!
