Credit Transfer

Courses Taken Before Admission

It is possible to transfer courses already obtained from the GSAPS, other graduate schools of Waseda University, other universities in Japan or abroad into the GSAPS transcript upon approval.  Students who wish to transfer their courses should submit the necessary documents within the first term registration period so that they may be examined for similarities to the classes of the GSAPS by the board meeting.
