Tuition and Fees

The University offers 30% tuition reductions to those holding a student visa. A student may not be considered for the tuition reductions, however,if s/he is financially well supported, has not earned a certain number of credits, or has enrolled in the University for more than four years.
Because the tuition reductions are applied only after entrance to the University, it is necessary for the full tuition to be remitted during the entry process. The amount of the reduction is subsequently refunded after entrance to the University. From the second year on the same procedure will be taken : the refund will be made after the full tuition is received and the student’s eligibility is checked.
Costs after the tuition reduction are given in bold type (see below). Data are for the 2014 Academic Year.
