Payment Of School Fees
Early Departures / Late Arrivals
For students leaving AIS before completion of the full school year, one-quarter of the tuition will be refunded for those students leaving before the end of Quarter 2 (for installment arrangements - the third installment need not be paid); students leaving after the end of Quarter 2 will not receive any refund (for installment arrangements – all 3 installments have to be paid).
The Application Fee, the Reservation Fee, the Enrollment Fee, and the Capital Assessment Fee are all non-refundable. Refunds will be made after the withdrawal of the student within 30 business days.
For students entering during the school year, tuition is charged for the full quarter in which the student is admitted, in addition to any remaining quarters, with the following exceptions: Students who enter between January 1 and the end of Quarter 2 or between May 1 and the end of Quarter 4 will be charged tuition on a daily pro-rata basis for the remaining days of the quarter of enrollment in addition to the full quarter fees for any additional remaining quarters.
In the 2020-2021 school year, the fiscal quarters end on the following dates:
- Quarter 1: October 16, 2020

In the event of late payment of any amounts due to AIS for more than two (2) weeks, arrears interest at the rate of 1% (one percent) per month calculated from the day following the due date until the date when the outstanding amount has been credited to the AIS bank account.
If a late payment continues for more than one (1) month, the AIS Director may, at his/her discretion, terminate the schooling contract and disenroll the student by way of a notice in writing to the parent/guardian. In all other respects, the provisions regarding “Early Departures” apply correspondingly. Legal costs incurred by AIS in the recovery of outstanding fees will be borne by the parent/guardian.
Third Party Payment
Parents/guardians may inform AIS that a specific third party will pay the school fees on their behalf. It is, however, the responsibility of the parents/guardians to assure that the third-party payments are made according to the school’s payment terms, and parents/guardians are liable for any outstanding balances of school fees including charges for late payments.
