TUITION FEES & OTHER FEES
There must be at least three equal instalments for tuition fees in each academic year in order to enable Parents/Guardians to pay tuition fees. The School may collect the first instalment within one month preceding the beginning of the school year. The first instalment shall be in March for Schools that start their academic year in April and August for Schools that start their academic year in September. The School may retain a certain amount of the tuition fees in any of the following cases:
- If a student attends any part of week one of the term or fails to show up at all without the Parent/Guardian notifying the School in writing sufficiently n advance before the beginning of a term. In such a case, the School may retain the value of the registration or re-registration fees.
- If a student attends from one week and up to three weeks in a term, the School may retain the value of one full month of tuition fees.
- If a student attends over three weeks and up to six weeks in a term, the School may retain the value of two full months of tuition fees.
- If a student attends over six weeks in a term, the School may retain the full-term fee.
These cases apply to newly enrolled students as well as students that register after a term has already commenced. Official holidays and absences from class are considered part of the week. The value of one month of tuition fees is calculated by dividing the total tuition fees for the school year by ten months. Any textbook and uniform fees paid to the School are to be refunded to Parents/Guardians if such have not yet been used. Transportation fees should be refunded in the same manner as tuition fees. School administration is to notify the Parents/Guardians in writing of these conditions upon registration or re- registration, ideally through a written agreement between the Parent/Guardian and the School.
NON-PAYMENT OF SCHOOL FEES
Schools must publish a clear, transparent policy for their response to non-payment or late payment of School fees. The Council will check that Schools honour the right of Parents/Guardians to have a payment system that is fair and reasonable and one in which Schools do not apply sanctions in a punitive way.
Schools are not allowed to dismiss students due to a delay in the payment of School fees; however, Schools may suspend a student for up to three days but only after sending three warning notices each being one-week in duration each time to a student’s Parents/Guardians. Further, Schools may withhold examination report cards, transfer certificates (or block a transfer on eSIS) and/or re-registering a student until all outstanding dues are settled. Schools are not allowed to prevent students from sitting for any end-of-term or end-of-year examinations or any examinations assigned during the term as a consequence of non-payment of School fees. Schools must act in a discrete manner when dealing with non-payment issues in order to protect the student from unnecessary attention and embarrassment.
