Payment of Fees

Registration fee of AED 500 is due at the time of application. This fee is non-refundable and non-transferable. When an offer of a seat in the College is extended, there will be an admission fee of AED 10,000 needed to secure the seat. This admission fee is non-refundable and adjustable against the 1st term fees.

If a student joins the College in the middle of a term/semester, the tuition fee applicable will be prorated, based on the number of full weeks (commencing from the week of joining) remaining and unexpired in the term/semester.

All forms of payment methods are accepted and can be made by in person at the accounts' office. In addition, payments of fees and tuition can also be paid by cheque or wire transfer directly to the College's bank account.

Non-payment of Fees

Failure to pay fees may result in a loss of the student’s place at the College, withholding of their reports, references, and/or examination results, as well as, temporary or permanent expulsion or exclusion from the College.

Re-Enrolments

In order to secure the seat for the next academic year, parents will be asked to pay a re-enrolment fee of 10% of the full fees for the next academic year, which is non-refundable, but adjustable against the first term fees. Please note, students who are unable to be registered with the ministry due to missing required documentation, or students with an outstanding fee balance, will not be able to be re-enrol for the next academic year.

Refunds

The registration fee, admission fee, and re-enrolment fee remain non-refundable, while tuition fee refunds follow the Ministry of Education Bylaws for Private Education. If a student withdraws or leaves the College for any reason, the refunds will be processed as follows and returned to the original payee.

  • If a student withdraws during the College term, the Registration fee, Admission fee, and Re-Enrolment fee, are non-refundable, and the remaining tuition is refunded in accordance per the Ministry of Education bilo for term payments:
  1. Fees will be charged for one full month if a student attends the College for two weeks or less.
