To all Academic students,

It's time to get ready for the fall 2020 semester!

With the new semester just around the corner, we’re happy to announce some new and improved ways for you to order class textbooks.

This fall many textbooks will be available to you online, with options for either renting or purchasing the e-textbook versions. Please check the textbook information found on your course syllabus. Students will be responsible for purchasing or renting their own e-textbooks.  The course syllabus is the only source you can view the book information, so please make sure to receive a copy in the first week.

The courses listed below are not available as e-books, so you will need to complete this online order form ( by Friday, September 11th. LUJ will be happy to send you the traditional, hard-copy textbooks free of shipping.


・Elementary Japanese I (JPN101)

・World History I (HIS101)

・Interpersonal Communication (COM211)

・Principles of International Business (BUS284)


Special Notes (please read carefully!):

  • Textbooks for GEN100 / GEN1101

GEN100 and GEN110 will use the same textbooks. If you already have textbooks from a previous Writing Workshop course, you do not need to order any books for GEN110.

  • Textbooks for ART280 / CPS100 / WRT212

There are no required textbooks for these courses. Your instructor will provide details regarding reading-based content and assignments.

Thank you for your cooperation!

Dear students in Academic Program and EAP Program,


Starting this semester, Summer 2020, students will be notified of their Dean's List standing and Academic Standing (such as Probation and Suspension) for the following term with Dean's Letters and Academic Standing Letters, respectively, electronically. Recipients receive the letters via e-mail sent to their LUJ Email addresses as PDF format, if not directly written in the message. 

Students who are on the Academic Probation this semester should check their LUJ Email inbox frequently after the semester ends as they may receive a notification that instructs them to take action by a certain date.

LUJ Book Club Ueno Station flyer 1

LUJ students,

Looking for something interesting to be a part of during your break?  Join the LUJ Book Club!  It looks like you'll be in for a rather interesting read as explained by Dr. Tompkins in the following quote.  "We will be reading Yu Miri's new book Tokyo Ueno Station (180 pages) over the August break. It promises to be a good one--a bit of a summer ghost story. Yu Miri is a Zainichi (Korean Japanese) writer who moved to Fukushima prefecture after the 3/11 tsunami and nuclear disaster. Fukushima and Tokyo, both past and present, figure into the story; though we will have to read the story to figure out why a ghost is lurking in Ueno Station."

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
