Parental financial obligation
Parents of students enrolled at the United Nations International School of Hanoi (UNIS Hanoi) are required to pay tuition fees as detailed in the Tuition and Fees Schedule. Parents have the option of paying fees annually in advance, or on a semester instalment basis. Fees applicable under the semester payment plan are subject to a four percent (4%) administrative charge.
2. Tuition Deposits:
All students are required to pay a mandatory deposit to secure a placement at UNIS Hanoi for the next academic year. A debit note will be prepared for the required tuition deposit of USD 1,000 and payment is due by 02 March 2020. UNIS Hanoi will prepare a debit note for all newly accepted students who have agreed to accept an offer of placement for the coming school year, which must be paid by the due date specified in the debit note. This payment guarantees a placement for the student listed in the debit note, provided all other requirements are met. If the required payment is not received by the due date, it will be assumed that the student is not enrolled and his or her place will be made available to another student. The deposit is non-refundable and non-transferable if a student is unable to attend UNIS Hanoi. The deposit will be credited against the tuition fee in the first debit note for the 2020-2021 school year.
