Non-payment of Fees
Each student’s Offer Letter contains a Fee Payment Schedule that the student agrees to by signing the Letter of Acceptance.
In the event that the fees due have not been paid on time, NCIU’s Office Administrator will notify the student of the lack of payment.
If the fees have not been paid in full within four weeks from the date(s) given in the Offer Letter, the student shall ordinarily be suspended from his/her studies, i.e., any submission shall not be accepted, scheduled mentoring sessions shall not take place, and access to the student learning platform shall be removed.
If the student pays the outstanding fees within this four-week period, (s)he will be reinstated.
If the student does not pay the outstanding fees after another four weeks from the date of suspension, (s)he will be given another four weeks to pay the outstanding balance. If payment is not received within this additional four-week period, the student will be removed from the Register of Students. Removal from the Register of Students constitutes a cancellation of any applicable scholarships.
In the case of exceptional circumstances, the student can explain in writing to the Registrar why payment has not been possible. The Registrar will bring this matter to the attention of NCIU’s Board of Directors, who will make the final decision.
