Osaka International School of Kwansei Gakuin Tuition & fees payment policy
This is a non-refundable fee, due on the day of application. Students are not assessed until the application fee is paid.
This is a one-time, non-refundable fee, due upon acceptance to OIS.
School fees comprising of tuition fees and an educational advancement fee are due before the first day of school (note: if the agreed starting date is less than one week following notification of acceptance; payment will be due within one week of written confirmation of acceptance, enrolment will be cancelled in the case where payment is not made by the specified date). The educational advancement fee is a part of the overall fee payment that is paid by all students attending OIS and is used to directly support the educational programmes in place at the school. The Kwansei Gakuin Educational Foundation, which oversees the financial operations of the school, uses this breakdown across all its schools. It can be thought of as the component of the fees that is allocated to facilities and equipment.
An annual levy of 3,000 yen is collected from each student enrolled in the school and passed on to the PTA to support the association’s activities.
School Bus & Cafeteria Fees
Application forms are sent in July and will require bank transfer payment. Forms for processing this payment will be sent to families who apply.
Tuition and fees are charged on a pro-rata basis, starting from the student’s first day of school.
In the case of withdrawal or dismissal from school for any reason, tuition fees are refunded for any complete academic terms not attended. Partial attendance in any academic term will result in fees being charged for the whole term (exception of December withdrawal in the winter term). School bus and cafeteria fees are refundable on a straight pro-rata basis, from the date of withdrawal.
Tuition and fees are due before the start of the term. It is understood that special circumstances may cause payment of tuition and fees to be delayed, but in these instances the OIS business manager must be notified. This notification must be made prior to the commencement of the term. In the case of overdue tuition, the school will withhold grades, transcripts, and reports until full payment is received, and/or the student may be dismissed from school. Students will not be allowed to start the next term within a school year if full payment for the previous term has not been paid.
After initial enrolment, as a rule, payment is made by direct debit transfer from your registered bank account. Forms to enable this should be submitted, where possible, by the first day of school.
Annual company payment requests should be made separately to the school’s business office.
