Students have the status of public employees. They do not pay tuition; moreover, they receive a salary (in 2003, the amount was 138,000 yen per month).

Technically it cannot award degrees of its own to its graduates because it is not in jurisdiction of Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology (MEXT). A MEXT affiliate, the National Institution for Academic Degrees and University Evaluation does instead.
