Financial Regulations

PDF Version of Financial Regulations

Registration and Capital Assessment

These fees are due and payable upon receipt of the invoice to guarantee the student(s) place.

Tuition Fees

These fees cover all school related expenses such as books, instructional materials and laboratory fees. Each parent/guardian registering a student is responsible for all payments of school fees. All parents/guardians are liable for payments on the due date whether or not companies assume responsibility for all or part of the fees. Furthermore, all parents are liable for all bank charges incurred.

For Students Who Enroll Late

For new students who enroll after the payment due date(s), fees are due and payable upon receipt of the invoice. Tuition and related fees for students admitted before the mid-semester dates as indicated on AOSR calendar are due in full for the semester.

Payment Due Dates

Tuition and related fees for new and returning students are due on the date(s) indicated in the invoice. Capital Assessment and Registration Fee for New Students are due upon receipt

Installment Plan

The installment plan is subject to a service charge of € 500,00 and is available at your request. This plan divides the annual tuition and transportation fees into 3 (three) equal payments due on or before the dates indicated on the invoice. The installment plan does not apply to the Registration and Capital Assessment fees, nor does it apply to IB, AP or After School Activity fees.

Late Payment

 All payments must be net of expenses and any bank handling charges are to be borne in full by the remitter. A penalty charge of 1% per month will be added to any outstanding balance after 30 days. 

Early Withdrawal

 AOSR will not reimburse any payments for a current semester because of a student’s absences, withdrawal, suspension or expulsion. However, Semester II payments will be reimbursed if AOSR is notified of a transfer within the first week of January. Official transcripts and records are released only after all financial obligations have been met.

Returning Students

All students returning to AOSR for the following school year will receive their invoice in March. Invoices are payable on or before the due date(s) indicated on such invoice(s). Due to AOSR’s open enrollment policy, we cannot guarantee a returning student’s place after the payment deadline and AOSR may assign his/her place to a new student.

Financial Aid

Financial Aid is available and is granted on an individual basis per year and is considered for students whose parents or guardians submit evidence of financial hardship. Application forms may be obtained or downloaded from our website at www.aosr.org/admissions/financial-aid. Completed applications with supporting documentation for returning students must be submitted by May 8th. Parents are invited to submit their applications no later than this deadline as Financial Aid available is a specific and limited amount for the academic year determined by the Board of Trustees. Financial Aid applications for new students will be presented to the Financial Aid Committee only after the student has been officially accepted and the capital assessment and registration fees have been paid.
