For Course Instructors, Academic Advisors and Administrative Staff

1. NUPACE Student Course Registration

NUPACE students attend an academic orientation at the beginning of each semester. The Spring Semester 2024 orientation falls on Thursday, April 4.
From April 10, students start attending classes to decide courses they wish to register for. The procedures that students will follow before attending the first class will depend on the course’s language of instruction. Where students ask for enrolment permission, it would be appreciated if you could consider their request and provide information about attending the first class.

A. Courses taught in English
Students should select courses available from the ‘NUPACE Course List’ and:

1. For courses requiring registration on TACT (TOKAI Academic Combination Tools) prior to the first class, students must contact the instructor via email to request to be added manually to the system.

2. For courses that require the instructor's permission in advance, students must contact the instructor via email to obtain permission to enrol. Once granted, students attend the first class.

3. Where none of the above is required, students may directly attend the first class without contacting the instructor in advance.

B. Courses Taught in Japanese (Students possessing N1 of the Japanese Language Proficiency Test (JLPT)
Students should search for courses in the University-wide Syllabus System, and contact each course instructor to ask for permission to enrol. Once obtained, students attend the first class.

2. Registering NUPACE Students on TACT

NUPACE students are not degree-seeking students. Therefore, it is necessary to add them manually to TACT.
Instructions are available here.
