Payment Of School Fees

Option 1 – Payment In Full

Tuition and fees are due and payable on August 31, 2019.

Option 2 – Installments

Installment payments are applicable for tuition fees only; the capital assessment fee has to be paid by August 31, 2019 at the latest.

Payers wishing to pay in 3 installments must sign a payment agreement and pay an additional 970,- EURO (nine hundred seventy EURO) financing charge (630,- EURO for Pre-Kindergarten). The amount of each installment and the date when each of the installments is due and payable are stated in the schedule of tuition fees.

If an installment is not paid on the respective due date, the installment payment agreement is nullified (breach of contract) without further notice and disqualifies non-payers from future installment arrangements. In such cases, the total outstanding amount has to be paid immediately.

Installment payments may be granted upon written request to the AIS Vienna Business Office. Requests for installment payments must be submitted by August 24, 2019 at the latest. No installment payments may be granted after the deadline.

Early Departures / Late Arrivals

For students leaving AIS Vienna before completion of the full school year, one quarter of the tuition will be refunded for those students leaving before the end of the first semester (for installment arrangements - the third installment need not be paid); students leaving after the end of the first semester will not receive any refund (for installment arrangements - all 3 installments have to be paid).

The application fee, the enrollment fee, the reservation 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 the first semester or May 1 and the end of the school year 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.

Payments must be made in € (EURO). Any bank handling charges are to be borne in full by the remitter.

Late Payment

In the event of a late payment of any amounts due to AIS Vienna 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 Vienna bank account.

If a late payment continues for more than one (1) month, the Director of AIS Vienna at his/her discretion may 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 Vienna in the recovery of outstanding fees will be borne by the parent/guardian.

Third Party Payment

Parents/guardians may inform AIS Vienna 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.

Activities and Elective Classes

Activities and elective classes may require additional fees.
