Discounts and Reduced Tuition for Incomplete Attendance

The Discount System (for those who sign up for the full number of lessons)

  1. A former student of NICHIBEI → Automatically eligible for a ¥2,000 discount
  2. A new student who enrolls in more than one class → Automatically eligible for a ¥2,000 discount from the second class on

Reduced Tuition for Incomplete Attendance

If, at the time of application, you know in advance which lessons you will be missing and make a request for tuition reduction accordingly, we arrange for a special reduced tuition for incomplete attendance, prorating it in accordance with the actual number of class sessions you will be taking.

* Note that, once you have made such a request, you may not change the dates or make an addition with regard to the to-be-missed lessons. Your request at the time of registration stays. Thus if you should miss a lesson on top of those about which you had originally specified (i.e., the to-be-missed lessons), we do not offer you a replacement class session or a refund for it.

Joining in Midstream・Changing Classes

Joining in Midstream

If there is seating available for a given class, you may enroll in midstream. The tuition will be prorated according to the number of remaining lessons.

Changing Classes

As a matter of principle, switching programs, courses or classes is only permitted once per semester and on condition that the JLI deems the student’s Japanese proficiency on a par with the requested class’s level and that there is extra seating available in it. Those wishing to switch classes shall apply either by phone, e-mail or in person at the counter. If and when the class change is approved, the student is to submit required forms.

Settling the Tuition Balance upon Class Change

In case of overpayment: When the tuition balance for the remainder of the present class exceeds that for the remainder of the requested class, we will refund you that amount.

In case of underpayment: When the tuition balance for the remainder of the present class falls short of that for the remainder of the requested class, you make up the balance.


Withdrawal prior to the first scheduled lesson by 5:00pm at least one school day before the lesson:
Withdrawal request shall be in writing or email. We will refund your full tuition after deducting a ¥1,000 handling fee.

Withdrawal after 5:00pm one school day before the first scheduled lesson:
Withdrawal request shall be in writing or email. We will refund your tuition for the lessons not taken after deducting a cancellation fee of 20%. If you contact us to withdraw after 5:00pm one school day before the scheduled lesson, the lesson will not be refunded.

Refund for Tuition

As a rule, we refund the applicant/student in person at the JLI counter. Please make sure to bring an ID (e.g., the resident card, passport or valid driver’s license).

Refund for Materials

We only buy back undamaged and unused materials. The JLI respectfully reserves the right to make a determination on the matter.

* Even if you have not attended any class sessions between the start date and the day of your class change application or class drop request, we will regard you as having taken those sessions, in so far as they did take place.
