How to Apply

  • Please complete the Request for Issuance of Certificate (designated form) and submit it to the Academic Affairs Section of the Graduate School of Life Sciences. The application may be submitted in the office, by mail, or by campus Gakunaibin mail.
  • To request the certificate in a special sealed envelope, please write "sealed" in the remarks column of the form.
  • Current students may use the automatic certificate machines.
    (Certificates that cannot be printed by the automatic certificate machines will be issued by the Academic Affairs Section, so please submit a request form for such certificates).
  • A scanned copy of the requested certificate (PDF file) may be send by email, but it will not be the original certificate and the mark indicating that it is a copy will be visible. Those who need only the original hard copy of the certificate should send us a self-addressed stamped envelope together with the request form.

The certificate will be issued the day after the application is submitted, but please apply well in advance in case the form is to be mailed on a weekend or holidays.
