- As a rule, certificate requests from those residing overseas should be made via a representative in Japan.
- The name on the certificate issued will be the same as the name registered at the time of enrollment (i.e., the name on a certificate cannot be changed to match a later name change, etc.).
- The issuing fee for all certificates is 300 yen per copy; however, the fee is 200 yen per copy (the cost for current students) up until the last day of the month in which graduation takes place (e.g., the issuing cost is 200 yen per copy through March 31 for someone who graduates on March 15).
