Tuition & Fees

The AIS Vienna General Assembly determines the fees payable for each student attending the school for each school year. The fee amounts for the 2021-2022 school year are listed below.

New Students

Application Fee € 600

The non-refundable Application Fee must be paid to initiate the processing of completed admissions applications. This fee also covers the administration of admissions testing/screening and application review, leading to an admissions decision. This fee is valid for two years.

Reservation Fee

€ 3,000

The non-refundable Reservation Fee is a deposit that must be paid within 10 days of the enrollment offer to secure the student's place at AIS Vienna. This fee is credited to the total annual tuition fee amount. Without timely payment, the family may forfeit the student's enrollment at AIS Vienna.


Enrollment Fee

€ 3,000

The one-time Enrollment Fee must be paid to complete AIS enrollment for all new students entering Kindergarten - Grade 12 (excluding Pre-Kindergarten) and all returning students entering Kindergarten. This fee is invoiced with the initial tuition payment.

Capital Assessment - New Students € 6,000

The one-time Capital Assessment Fee for New Students must be paid for all new students entering Kindergarten - Grade 12 (excluding Pre-Kindergarten) and all re-enrolling students entering Kindergarten. Capital Assessment fees help pay for buildings and other long-term projects. This fee is invoiced with the initial tuition payment.

Re-Enrolling Students

Reservation Fee

€ 3,000

The Reservation Fee is a deposit that must be paid by March 1 to reserve a re-enrolling student’s place for the following year. This payment is refundable until April 1. Re-enrollment after April 1 is subject to space availability, is not guaranteed, and is not refundable.

Capital Assessment Fee - Re-Enrolling Students € 1,000

The Capital Assessment Fee must be paid for all re-enrolling students entering Grades 1-12 and is payable for all subsequent years of enrollment at AIS Vienna. Capital Assessment fees help pay for buildings and other long-term projects. This fee is invoiced with the initial tuition payment and is non-refundable after June 1.

Leaves of Absence

Leave of Absence Fee

€ 3,000

If requested by the family and approved by the school before March 1 of the current school year, AIS Vienna may agree to prioritize enrollment for a qualified student who is leaving the school but expects to return within one year. This fee guarantees a place on the student’s return at the start of the following school year and at the regular fee rates for Re-Enrolling Students (see above). The Leave of Absence Fee is not prorated or refunded under any circumstance. A Leave of Absence may not be extended beyond one year. Approval must first be obtained through the Admissions Office at admissions@ais.at.

During the school year of the Leave of Absence, the family must adhere to the regular re-enrollment timelines and fees for the following school year in order to secure the student’s return to AIS.

Returning Students After Withdrawal

Return Within 1 Year: The regular fees for Re-Enrolling Students (see above) apply for students who withdraw from AIS but are re-enrolled within 1 year, with or without a Leave of Absence Fee guarantee.

Return After More Than 1 Year: The fees for New Students (see above) apply for students who withdraw from AIS but are re-enrolled after more than 1 year, with or without a Leave of Absence Fee guarantee.
