A 'No Surprise' Policy on Tuition & Fees

It's no fun to be surprised by charges you didn't expect or plan for. That's why the Ghana Campus has 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)
  • Textbooks provided at no additional charge
  • 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.

For Ghanaian residents: Ghana Cedis 200. 
For non-Ghanaian residents: US$50. 

The admissions decision will be made only after the application fee is paid.
