Who May Apply?

Thank you for your interest in the EAI program!

Christian students from any university are welcome to apply as visiting EAI students, and especially from universities in North America associated with the Council of Christian Colleges and Universities (the CCCU) and the International Affiliates of the CCCU.

In addition, however, Tokyo Christian University has partnership agreements with a select group of universities and colleges. These partnership agreements greatly simplify the application process for students from those universities as well as the acceptance of credit, payment of fees, etc. The partner universities at present are as follows (in alphabetical order):

・Asbury University
・Biola University (there is a special financial accord for Biola University)
・Belmont University
・Campbellsville University
・Covenant College
・George Fox University
・Huntington University
・Judson University
・Lee University
・Olivet Nazarene University
・Spring Arbor University
・Taylor University
・Waynesburg University
・Wheaton College

In the application form, you will find references to partner universities and students from partner universities. If you are from one of these universities, then the reference will apply to you, simplifying the admissions process and giving you preferred admission to the EAI program. Other students are, as stated, welcome to apply.

  • All applicants should be enrolled at an accredited college or university (both at the time of application and during their time of study at Tokyo Christian University)
  • All applicants should have at least a 3.0 GPA.
