Don't Get Lost in the Crowd
Very often higher education feels more like being lost in an ocean than anything else. With class sizes reaching into the hundreds, contact with teachers becomes rare; instead you mostly meet with "teaching assistants" who are nothing more than students who are a year or two ahead of you. Lakeland strives to be different. With maximum class sizes ranging between 16 and 26 students, you are assured to get the teacher's attention. Our faculty offices are open, and students are welcomed–in fact, encouraged–to get special, personal attention from professors who are committed to reaching out to their classes.

What Lakeland College Japan Is to Our Students
LCJ is more than just the first two years of college. For international students, it is a life experience, often the first time to live in a new culture. Our students find themselves independent often for the first time in their lives--but never alone. The family they enter is one rich with variety and experience. Hear directly from them what it's like to live in Japan and study at LCJ.
Live in Japan, Get an American education, and Take it anywhere.
As a fully-accredited U.S. college, Lakeland College Japan offers an authentic American education in the heart of downtown Tokyo. Get the best of both worlds, and more–joining students from around the world in an earnest commitment to learning, while getting the most from living in Japan. After graduating with an Associate of Arts degree, transfer to a four-year college is usually easier than trying to apply as a Freshman–and Lakeland's tuition is genuinely affordable. What’s more, graduating with an A.A. degree from LCJ assures transfer to our home campus, with a minimum $4000 scholarship–and with good enough grades, a $7000-per-year scholarship to make Lakeland’s already-low tuition hard to beat.

A Place Where Friends Become Family
Lakeland College Japan's advantages are not unique–we inherit most of them from our home campus. A quality, affordable Liberal Arts college, with an impressive teacher-to-student ratio and a safe, quiet environment, Lakeland College in Sheboygan, Wisconsin has a century and a half of tradition behind it. Even in America's heartland, Lakeland attracts students from as many as 40 countries around the world.
There's no shortage of quality housing, and all the advantages of a quiet setting, perfect for concentrating on study. You get the security of a town noted as the best place to raise a family in America, with great cities like Chicago and Milwaukee just a short trip away–though you'll be hard-put to find time between all of the on-campus social activities to get away much. The greatest risk you'll likely face is enjoying the food too much.
