A 'No Surprise' Policy on Tuition & Fees

Being surprised by charges you didn't expect or plan for is irritating. That's why we have a 'no surprise' policy on tuition and fees. This is how simple it is:

  • Application fee
  • Tuition paid each semester (undergraduate) or per course (graduate)
  • Graduation fee

There may also be special course fees when special materials (e.g. photography) or travel are needed. But this information will be posted before course registration and the student can take an alternative course.

Application Fee 2014

US$25 (or Cedis 50). Proof of application fee payment is required to complete the application file.

IMPORTANT NOTE: For Ghanaian residents, all amounts in US dollars will be converted and paid in Ghanaian Cedis at the start of each term or semester.

Undergraduate Tuition 2014

A student needs to successfully complete 128 credits (approximately 43 courses) in order to earn a bachelor's degree. Students take between 10 and 12 courses per year. There are 2 semesters per year. Full-time students are assessed a “flat fee” tuition:

  • US$10,000 per semester (5-6 courses)
  • (a) Ghanaian citizens and (b) non-citizens from high schools in Ghana receive a bursary of US$3,000 per semester
  • Some courses may have additional lab or travel fees, but this fee will be communicated before registration
  • Tuition is paid at the start of each semester and must be paid in full no later than the first day of the semester.
