To LUJ Academic Students,

Waitlist image

Students should keep in mind that even if a class is full, there is an online waiting list

This waiting list, however, does not guarantee registration for classes. Therefore, when you sign up for the waiting list, you must also register for an alternate class, since most students do not get into waitlisted class. Academic Affairs will contact you directly if a seat becomes avairable in the class you are waitlisted for. Otherwise, all waiting lists will be canceled on Monday, August 3rd.

Following registration week, if you cannot get into a class you need or strongly want, please wait until September 7th, 2020. This is the start day of the "Add/Drop Period" when another waitlist will become available if your desired class is still full at the time of attempted registration.

As always, only sign up for classes which are approved by your advisor. 

Thank you,

Academic Affairs

Dear Students,

Due to the ever-changing Coronavirus pandemic situation, the LUJ administration has decided to postpone the advising period by a week.  The period will now start the week of July 14, instead of the week starting July 7, and it will end on July 24. We have changed the dates to allow the administration more time to create the class schedule for the Fall term. The start of the registration period will also be moved back a week from July 20 to July 27. The withdrawal deadline for students will stay the same. 

This postponement means you will have a little more time before you need to meet with your advisor to discuss the classes you wish to take next semester. Nonetheless, you should try to contact your advisor soon to set up an appointment, so that you can be among the first they advise.  

At present, we do not have a schedule for next semester because we are still analyzing the data from the survey you recently completed to help make our decisions. I am very grateful to all of you who took time to complete the survey. Based on the results of the student and faculty surveys, we will decide how many, if any, classes will be held on campus and how many will be online.  Even if some classes will be held on campus, you, as a student, can choose to follow the class online. 

New dates for Advising and Registration

Advising       BeginsJuly 14
                      Ends  July 24

Registration    Starts July 27
                         Ends July 30

Thanks for being patient, and I hope your classes are going well.

Dear students,

 As we start re-opening the campus for some of the EAP TOEFL workshops and Academic classes, we have created a COVID-19 guideline for students. This resource has also been added to the Students Resources page.

 We would like all of you to take a look at this guideline even if you are not planning to come to campus in the near future. For students who have any plans on coming to the campus, please take a look before your visit the school.

来週からEAP生向けのTOEFL Workshopや教養課程の一部の授業を対面で行うにあたり、新型コロナウィルスに関するLUJ生向けのガイドラインを作成し、Student Resroucesのページにアップいたしました。日々の生活においての注意点、登校に関する基準等が書かれています。

Dear Academic Students,

Due to the continuous closure of the LUJ campus, we will use the same procedure from the previous semester for Course Withdrawal to best accommodate the current situation. For those who wish to withdraw from a course, please carefully read our advice and follow the instructions shown below.



  1. Before you make up your mind on withdrawing from a course, please make sure that you consult with your instructor to find the true status of your course progress. Your instructor may have a different view on your outcome of your final grade.
  2. No payment refunds (including time and efforts you have already invested).
  3. Your expected graduation term may be extended due to the shortage of credit hours by withdrawing from a course this term.
  4. The course level that you can register for may be affected.
  5. If you are on the school-sponsored visa, you may not reduce your workload below nine semester hours after withdrawing from one or more courses. If you also repeatedly withdraw from courses and slow down on your academic progress, you may increase the chance of not getting your student visa renewed by the Immigration Bureau.



Instead of coming to the Academic Affairs office to pick up the withdrawal form, the students who wish to withdraw from a course may send an email request.

     Please send your request to the following parties:
               To: Academic Affairs ()
               CC: Your Instructor and Academic Advisor

     Required information to include in order to successfully withdraw from your course:
               Full Name:
               LUJ Student ID:
               LUW Student ID:
               Course Code and Section (e.g. GEN100.J1):
               Title of course (e.g. Writing Workshop):
               Credit hours (e.g. 1 cr., 3 cr., or 4 cr.):
               Do you have a school-sponsored visa? (Answer by Yes or No):
               Do you receive military benefits? (Answer by Yes or No):
               Do you receive U.S. Financial Aid? (Answer by Yes or No):


Should you have any questions, please contact Academic Affairs at
