Admission/Tuition Fee Exemption

Admission Fee Exemption System

Your entrance fee can be exempted within the limit of our budget. Eligibility for application, financial situation of your family, and scholastic attainments are considered on the basis of our standards. Postponement of collection of your entrance fee means that the deadline of the collection is postponed. However, the same total sum will be collected.
