Notices

  • Placement tests will be conducted to check your Japanese language ability if you register for Elementary II or higher level classes. However, a student who has taken 8H course the previous semester and passed it, will be exempted from this semester's placement test and will be allowed to take classes from the next higher level.
    Further, a student who received a C or D and feels uneasy about advancing to the next level may consult one of the faculty during the advisory service for class selection.
    In case you are exempted from taking the placement test, you will be informed by email. If you have any inquiries about exemption, please inquire at the Liberal Arts and Sciences Courses Student Desk (1st floor of the Institute for Liberal Arts and Sciences building #87)
  • We will cover the second half of the textbook in the 4H courses the 2nd semester. Students taking these classes should check the syllabus.
