Other student costs

Studying involves mainly tuition fees, but there are additional costs to consider as well.

Application Fee

There is no application fee

Enrollment Fee

There is an enrollment fee of USD $55.00 / USD $115 per year or dependent on how the tuition is paid. This fee is payable when submitting all the required personal registration information and your academic transcripts and other required data. 

Undergraduate = USD $55.00

Graduate = USD $115

Service Fee

There an Administration department Service fee of USD $30.00 charged per subject registration per enrollment period. The service fee does not utilize any scholarships, or bursaries that are received by the student.

Applications for recognition of prior learning (RPL) are handled separately from the enrollment as it requires an entirely different process of verification. PCiBS does accept your previous submissions electronically, but if there should be a concern with the transcript or the certification thereof, a third-party verification will be required. Currently, the RPL’s are handed in manually by a third party, and there might be a printing fee and a runners or courier fee involved. All RPL application will be managed by the PCiBS Administration department. See all Fees here.
