TUITION POLICY

STU’s course tuition and related costs are aimed at international students primarily from low-income family areas.
The decision to offer lower tuition fees than those charged by U.S. universities is consistent with STU’s mission, which addresses its interest as an institution of higher education in countries where access to quality university programs is still tricky because of the costs required to attend them.

  1. Tuition and fees are set annually by the Board of Trustees.
  2. Students are considered academically in good standing if fees and contributions have been paid according to the terms agreed upon at the time of enrollment.
  3. The student may choose two contractual modes of payment:
    1. The first is one in which the student sets the entire undergraduate or master’s degree program while keeping the same annual amount from enrollment until graduation.
    2. The second is one in which the student fixes payment on a course-by-course basis, updated annually.
  4. The annual increase that will be applied based on North Carolina trends will be calculated on an annual basis.
  5. STU must receive the amount in full. The student is responsible for the fees charged by the bank to make the transfer.
  6. STU is not responsible for charges or penalties for payments with debit cards or other restrictive payment cards.
  7. Automatic payments are set up before each course upon request.
  8. Administrative fees must be paid at the same time as enrollment.
  9. STU must know who is responsible for paying the fees. If this person is NOT the student, a statement of financial responsibility must be completed using the form on the STU website to confirm acceptance of payment obligations. The person(s) responsible must inform STU of any change of address or bank details.
  10. In case of late payment, the student’s registration may be canceled, with an additional fee for re-registration.

CANCELLATION AND REFUND POLICY

Students withdrawing from STU must notify the Office of the President and Registrar in writing immediately. Any financial adjustments are calculated when the Office of the President and Bursar receives written notification. All withdrawals require the approval of the President. The student is considered enrolled, and their academic and financial responsibility continues for all courses they have registered until the President’s Office notifies them that the withdrawal has been approved and accepted. The student will retain the right to a refund if they comply with the withdrawal procedure described above. Stopping payment or not attending classes does not constitute a withdrawal. No refund will be given for unofficial withdrawal or dismissal from STU.
Students enrolled who withdraw before the start of the course(s) will be entitled to a refund of 100% of the tuition paid. Students enrolled who withdraw in the first and second week of the course will be entitled to a refund as per the table below:

Before the 1st week100%

Administrative and Resources fees are non-refundable unless prohibited by some provision of law. A student who withdraws from a course will have access to the electronic course materials at no additional cost if the student re-enrolls within 180 days of the withdrawal date.
Students enrolled in one or more courses after the second week of the course will be responsible for full payment and will not be entitled to any refund. Students enrolled in one or more courses will be responsible for full payment to STU at registration in their national currency.
Bank fees incurred are the student’s responsibility and funding source, not STU’s. Reimbursements do not include bank fees incurred and are not the responsibility of STU.
