Types of Certificates
IUJ can issue the following certificates to a student upon his/her written request.

The title of the degree conferred and the date of graduation are also included in the final version of the transcript, which can be received on or after the student’s day of graduation.

2. Method of Payment
The certificate-issuance fee will be deducted from your Hokuetsu Bank Account on the 25th (or 23rd or 24th if the 25th falls on a weekend or national holiday) of month the following your application.
If you are a prospective graduate this year, please be sure to apply for the certificate(s) by the end of the last day of the month prior to your month graduation (e.g., by May 31st for June graduates), and maintain your Hokuetsu bank account until three days before the day graduation so that we can withdraw the fee from your bank account.
3. Certificate(s) are normally issued the day after your application is accepted. However, due to national/special holidays and weekends, it may take more than a week for us to issue the certificate(s).
4. Method of Receipt
(1) Via Course Box
OAA staff will put the certificate(s) into your course box, which is located in front of classrooms 101~104. If you are a prospective graduate this year, you can choose this option only until the last day of the month prior to your graduation month. (e.g., by May 31st for June graduates). This is because you must return your mailbox key to OAA within a month of your graduation.
(2) At OAA
You will receive the certificates at OAA in person.
(3) By post
OAA staff will send the certificate(s) to your address by post. Delivery may be delayed due to extenuating circumstances. For example, the novel coronavirus pandemic has resulted in many countries/territories stopping acceptance of inbound postal items, as well as a considerable suspension and reduction of flights from/to Japan. Because of this, considerable delivery delays are expected for outbound mail items to other countries/territories.
Lastly, please note that IUJ does not issue an electronic version of certificates, nor send them by E-mail. Thank you very much in advance for your understanding.
If you have any questions, please contact either GSIR (firstname.lastname@example.org) or GSIM (email@example.com) staff at the E-mail addresses mentioned in brackets.
* “business days” exclude Saturday, Sunday, Japanese National Holidays, and the New Year Holiday, which is approximately between December 25 and January 5 (Note that there may be slight variations in the “New Year Holiday” period depending on the year.)
