Undergraduate Program


For nearly three decades, we have brought together students from all over the globe to live and learn. Lakeland currently teaches 300+ students from 30 countries in an American educational environment at its Tokyo campus. We are one of only two approved American universities in Japan and are fully accredited by the Higher Learning Commission.

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 who chose to study abroad two very different American opportunities, urban and rural, which will allow them to sample life in the U.S.

Students who study at LU Wisconsin will live and grow in a rural setting near the Lake Michigan shoreline. The university only an hour from Milwaukee and Green Bay, and just two hours from Chicago, allowing students to experience a mix of rural and urban life in America.

Students who study at Virginia Wesleyan will have easy access to the areas where people first came to the US. For students to understand America in its fullness historically, politically and economically, they need to spend time in places like Washington D.C., New York, Philadelphia and Boston.

Associate of Arts, A.A.

LUJ also offers a fully accredited Associate of Arts (A.A.) degree, but it's more than just aiming for a diploma. Through a combination of both required and elective courses, students are exposed to a wide variety of courses that give insight into future majors and careers. Students successfully completing this program are equipped not only with two years of a personalized education at an international campus, but also full confidence in their choice of major when the time comes to transfer and continue their studies.

To qualify for an A.A. degree, students need to complete 60 credits (typically 20 courses). Students who have attended other colleges or institutions can transfer up to 36 credits towards their degree.

Our advising is a collaborative process between students and their assigned faculty advisor. With the students interests and personal goals in mind, academic advisors not only answer questions about campus resources, majors and course selection, but also assist in the development of strategies to help each student accomplish both short and long-term goals.


Lakeland's Learning Center offers free, on campus tutoring services to students. In fact...we logged over 400+ hours of additional academic tutoring and support to our students last year. Whether you are looking to schedule some extra time to prepare for exams, want a paper proofread before submitting, or are just looking for some additional conversation practice for a foreign language, the Learning Center is a major supporter of academic growth and success at Lakeland University Japan.
