Other matters related to issuing certificates

Please read the following information about matters involved in issuing certificates.

To those currently enrolled as students who graduated from an undergraduate faculty or completed a degree program at a Keio University graduate school.

If you are currently enrolled in an advanced degree program at Keio University after previously graduating from or completing an undergraduate or master's program at Keio, you can request to have your certificates from your previous degrees (undergraduate/master's) issued through the regular processes for currently enrolled students (such as at the certificate issuing machines, or at convenience stores.) However, please note that there may be exceptions to this based on which undergraduate or master's program you completed and which year you graduated. Please refer to the page below for details.


Grading system (GPA, etc.)

  • For details concerning the grading system used for Transcripts of Academic Record, please refer here.

  • Passport (the page with your photo ID)
  • Health insurance card (make sure to obscure the code and number of the insured person, etc.)

Procedures for changing one's name of surname, or reverting to one's previous name

The process for changing one's name or surname or reverting to one's previous name will differ depending on which way you make your request to issue a certificate. Please check the following information before proceeding.

Important notes:

This process is different from the one conducted by the Office of Alumni Affairs. Even if you have already changed your name at the Office of Alumni Affairs, the certificates issued by the Office of Student Services will not reflect this change. (This is because changing your name on official certificates requires documentation such as a copy of your family register.)
After you complete the paperwork for changing your name at the Office of Student Services, we will report it to the Office of Alumni Affairs afterwards. Please contact us if there is no need to modify the information registered with the Office of Alumni Affairs.


1. Online requests (and printing at a convenience store)

For first-time users:

When you are registering to use the system, please upload the necessary documentation for changing your name on the "applicant information registration" screen.

For those who have already registered:

Please use the "Name Change Application Form" listed below in order to complete the process. The university will contact you by email once your name change has been finalized.

  • Certification of personal information issued within the last three months (copy of family register)
  • Certificate of residence listing both your current and previous names issued within the last three months
  • Driver's license listing both your current and previous names


*Time at which name changes will be reflected on official certificates
For those who are using the system for the first time, the name change will be reflected once they receive their confirmation email from the university that their registration form (or re-registration form) has been accepted. For those who have already created accounts, the name change will be reflected once they receive an email stating their paperwork for changing their name has been processed. However, please note that when it comes to actually printing the certificates, the name change will not take effect until the morning after you have received the confirmation email. As such, we ask that you file your request to issue a certificate after 7:00 a.m. the day after you receive the email .

Upload the necessary documentation needed to change your name from the certificate request system (any of the following.)

  • Any of the following will be acceptable.
    -Certification of personal information issued within the last three months (copy of family register)
    -Certificate of residence listing both your current and previous names issued within the last three months
    -Driver's license with maiden name

If someone is completing this application on your behalf, they will need to submit the following documents.

  • A letter of attorney from the applicant granting permission to complete these procedures
  • A copy of the applicant's proof of identification
  • The proxy's proof of identification
