|①The student has Japanese citizenship or permanent residency status in Japan.
② The student is permitted entry by the host university etc. on the basis of agreements etc. concerning student exchange. (Students selected as study abroad candidates by the university through internal screening are considered as meeting this requirement.)
③ The student shows outstanding academic performance at Waseda University and is of excellent character, etc. In addition, at the time of screening at Waseda University, the student’s GPA according to JASSO’s calculation formula for the prior academic year must be 2.30 or higher (out of a total of 3.00 points). If the student does not have grades for the prior academic year, calculations shall be made from grades from the prior semester at the time of screening.
【JASSO’s Calculation Formula】
The grade evaluation coefficients are as follows. Evaluation points:
A+ and A = 3 points
B = 2 points
C = 1 point
Failed = 0 points
The above are multiplied by the number of credits, and that number is then divided by the total number of registered credits (rounded off to the 3rd decimal place).
The below total:
([the number of credits that earned 3 evaluation points]
×3)＋（[the number of credits that earned 2 evaluation points] ×2）＋（[the number of credits that earned 1 evaluation point] ×1）＋（[the number of credits that earned 0 evaluation points] ×0）
is divided by the total number of registered credits.
Caution: This formula is different from Waseda University’s grade evaluation coefficient calculation formula. If the courses you took do not utilize a credit system, make the calculation by using the number of all of the subjects you took instead of the number of your credits.
④ The student has difficulty covering expenses to participate in a study abroad program without financial aid, due to monetary reasons.
As a general rule, students matching the household budget standards of JASSO’s Type 2 scholarship will be given priority. However, depending on the situation of scholarship payment percentages, students confirmed as “having difficulty covering expenses to participate in a study abroad program without financial aid, due to monetary reasons” at Waseda University will also be eligible.
