2019-2020 Tuition and Fees

SUMMARY OF FEES AND CONDITIONS

School fees for the 2019-2020 school year include daily lunch at school (full day students) and one “start up” set of the school uniform. For Upper School students (grades 6-12), use of school-loaned technology (see our technology use guidelines online for further information) and compulsory program trip fees are included.

APPLICATION FEE
RMB 2,000

The application fee is non-refundable and payable when the student’s application is completed and submitted to the school for consideration. This fee is not applicable to other school fees but is valid for up to one academic year beyond the submitted application date.

SEAT GUARANTEE DEPOSIT RMB 20,000

Upon acceptance to HIS, this deposit (which is applicable to the first semester or annual fee) will secure the seat until the June 1, 2019 tuition payment deadline. The seat guarantee deposit is due for all returning families by March 18, 2019 and is due within ten working days of the offer of enrollment for new families. Once the due date has passed, a seat may be offered to other students in the waitpool. A refund of the seat guarantee fee will not be granted if the parent/guardian withdraws their child/ren from school, or if he/she is withdrawn due to academic, medical or behavioral concerns that inhibit their ability to function in the regular school environment.

The one time non-refundable TESOL fee is over and above the standard tuition fee and is compulsory for all students, grades 1-10, whose native language is not English or who have been referred for additional language assessment and/or support. The fee must be paid in full upon enrollment.
 

EXAM FEES 

It is the responsibility of the parents to cover all external exam costs (i.e. SAT, PSAT 8/9, ACT, and IB) as these exams are not part of high school graduation requirements.

PREPAYMENT OF IB DIPLOMA PROGRAMME EXAMINATION FEES (GRADE 12 STUDENTS ONLY) RMB 6,500

As most HIS Grade 12 students will register in all IB Diploma Programme subjects, parents may prepay the costs for IB examinations directly at the office. The fee includes candidate registration, subject examination costs, shipping/handling, and administration.

SIBLING DISCOUNT

A 5% reduction on the total annual tuition fee is applied to any family enrolling three or more siblings.

PAYMENT OF FEES

If payment is made by USD check, please use the USD exchange rate at the time of payment and add US$50 to the total amount to cover bank clearance charges. If the payment is made by wire transfer, any bank charge will be the responsibility of the payer. Regardless of payment option, all fees must be settled before the student begins class. Teachers must have a minimum of three days’ notice before student attendance.

Required if choosing Wire Transfer Payment Option
Because wire transfers often pass through several intermediate banks before they are deposited into the HIS account, the process may take several days to reach the HIS account. It is often difficult and/or impossible to determine the student or family making the payment from the bank notice of deposit.

To insure that your payment through wire transfer is properly credited, please email to payment@his-china.org or fax to 86 (571) 8669 0044. Please write your child’s name, grade, and campus in the subject line of the email.
