Dear LUJ continuing students,

We started mailing a back sticker for your student ID card to students whose SU21 payment has been confirmed (students who joined LUJ in FA20 and SP21 as an EAP student are excluded since they already have a stamp for SU21).

We have also enclosed a “Student Contact Information” sheet in this envelope. This sheet contains personal information you registered with LUJ, including your emergency contact information. Please check the information and if there are any updates, let us know via Google Form (QR code is on the sheet). This “Student Contact Information” sheet has been sent to those who joined LUJ in FA20 and SP21 as an EAP student as well.

Dear Academic students,

Academic Affairs has just received a report from a student that My.Lakeland's Registration feature became not in active all of sudden. This means our Add/Drop system has closed unexpectedly. 

There has been no information received from the main campus about the earlier closure, however, as the main campus resumes its operation half day later than our Japan time, please follow the new instruction below.

If you wish to change your courses:
  1. Check My.Lakeland and find the seat availability of the course that you wish to ADD.
  2. Email Academic Affairs at  with the information of which course to add AND which course to DROP by 11:59 PM of today, April 30th, 2021.

Academic Affairs will get back to the requests that arrive before the deadline with the result whether your requests are accommodated or not (Please be warned for the delay in process as the office is not in service for 24-7.)

2. Please contact your advisor for an approval every time you make a change to your registration on My.Lakeland. Your registration is NOT DONE yet until your advisor approves your course, which will change the course status under the “Course Schedule” section of My.Lakeland to Current from Reserved. Make sure to log back into My.Lakeland some time later and check the status. If the courses have not been approved after 2 days, please check with your advisor.

If your intended course is still full on My.lakeland, there is an online waiting list and you can be on the list if you would like. The online waiting list, however, does not guarantee registration for classes and most students do not get into those waitlisted classes, please do not drop any courses you have registered at the time of signing up on an online waitlist. Academic Affairs will contact you directly if a seat becomes available in the class you are waitlisted for. You must give Academic Affairs the confirmation by its deadline. Please keep checking your phone and LUJ email. Otherwise, all waiting lists will be cancelled on Monday, May 3rd.
