Payment Policies

Information about Payments, Refunds, Re-enrolments and Withdrawals

A registration fee of AED 500 is due at the time of application. This fee is non-refundable, non-transferable, and non-deductible. When an offer of a seat in the school is extended, there will be an admission fee of AED 7500 (non-refundable) needed to secure the seat.

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

Non-payment of Fees

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

Refunds

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

  • If a student withdraws prior to the start of the academic year, the balance of the first term/semester fee paid will be refunded, except the AED 500 Registration Fee and Admissions Fee
  • If a student withdraws during the school term/semester, the Registration Fee and Admission Fee are non-refundable, and the remaining tuition is refunded in accordance per the Ministry of Education bilo for term payments:
  • Fees will be charged for one full month if a student attends school for two weeks or less.
  • Fees will be charged for two full months if a student attends school for more than two weeks and less than one month.
  • Fees will be charged for the entire school term/semester if a student attends school for more than one month.

Re-Enrolments

In order to secure the seat for the next academic year, parents will be asked to pay a re-enrolment fee 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-enroll for the next academic year.

Student Withdrawals

All students withdrawing from the school must submit notification of their withdrawal in writing to the Registrar’s office. A 30-day notification period is required to ensure all necessary documents are ready.
