Issuing of Certificates of Graduation and Completion

How to Submit a Request

Requests for certificates to be issued are accepted by mail (or email for those overseas). After filling in the below items, send in the request by enclosing a self-addressed stamped envelope (an A4 size envelope with a stamp of the proper postage amount affixed). Those overseas may use an International Coupon (¥130 for one coupon).

  1. Name
  2. The date of your birth
  3. Address and telephone number
  4. School year of enrollment, year and month of graduation (completion)
  5. Subject (major) or specialty (field of study) at time of enrolment
  6. Reason for issuing certificate and recipient of certificate
  7. Type and number of certificates
  8. Name in Roman letters: if an English certificate is requested (as written on the request form)
  9. Prefecture of permanent domicile (for certificate of credits earned for a teaching license)


  • Certificates are issued three days after receiving a request. (Same-day issuing is not available.)
  • If you have any preferences about how the certificate is sealed, indicate them clearly.
  • If the request is urgent, affix an additional rush delivery fee (an extra ¥270) to the self-addressed stamped envelope.
  • Qualification-related certificates are issued one week after receiving a request (depending on the situation).
  • Transcripts in English for those who enrolled as undergraduates before 1993 are issued one week after receiving a request.
  • For those overseas, certificates are issued after a self-addressed stamped envelope arrives.
