Keio University, located in downtown Tokyo, is one of Japan's oldest and most prestigious academic institutions. Each academic year it hosts one or two Dartmouth students in either their Japanese Language Program (JLP) or their Keio International Program (KIP), which is comprised of courses taught in English. Housing is provided in either a dormitory or apartment. Students participating in the exchange generally receive nine transfer credits for a full academic year or four transfer credits for a single semester, with the approval of COCA.
Applications must be submitted by February 1.
Selected students would attend Keio according to one of the three following enrollment patterns:
1) full academic year (approx. 10 Sept to late July of the following year; winter holiday is approx. 20 Dec to 4 Jan; spring vacation is approx 20 Jan to 5 April)
2) fall term only (approx. 10 Sept to 20 Jan; note that this would preclude enrollment at Dartmouth for the winter quarter)
3) spring term only (appox. 5 April to late July; note that this would preclude attendance at Dartmouth for the summer quarter).
Students pay tuition to Dartmouth and either dormitory or apartment rent to Keio. Travel and meals are arranged and financed by the student. Dartmouth students may be eligible for a living-expenses stipend from Keio.
Upon completion of the exchange, the exchange coordinator at the host institution will forward the transcript to the Office of the Registrar, Dartmouth College. Future transcripts of exchange program grades must be obtained by the student from the exchange institution.
