PLEASE NOTE:
  1. The Component A Fee is an annual charge and is therefore not pro-rated and is non-refundable. The only exceptions to this policy relate to the pro-rating of the Component A Fee for students leaving in the first quarter of the school year or for students enrolling in the final quarter of the school year when this period of admission is stipulated in advance. The Component A Fee is intended to support the ongoing maintenance and capital improvement of the school.

  2. There is a 20% discount on the Component B Fee for the third child in one family attending the school and a 30% discount on the Component B Fee for the fourth and subsequent children in one family attending the school.

PAYMENT GUIDELINES

1. Invoices for students enrolled for the 2018/2019 school year will be sent to paying parties around mid-May 2018.

2. Payment of the annual Component A Fee and at minimum, the first semester of the Component B Fee is due no later than June 8,2018. By written request the Director will consider approval of payment of the Component B Fee on a quarterly basis. Such requests must be accompanied by an endorsed letter from the applicant's company clearly stating that the applicant assumes full responsibility for the payment of school fees and that these fees are not otherwise compensated for by the company. Payment of the Component B Fee on a quarterly basis may also be considered by the Board of Governors under other special circumstances and by written request. All such requests must be applied for in writing. (Note: The criteria for this policy are subject to annual review by the IST Board of Governors.)

3. As an incentive a 2% discount on the Component B Fee shall be provided to patrons who opt to pay the entire annual fee no later than June 8,2018. This discount is non-refundable if a student attends less than the full year and shall only be applicable to the Component B Fee for students who pay for two semesters at one time.

4. Fees are payable in RMB or in U.S. Dollars. Patrons opting to pay in USD are requested to check the current rate of conversion (RMB to USD) being used by the school from the school's Business Office.

* IB Examination fees have been estimated based on the current Exam Fee structure of the IB, and will be subject to change if rates are changed during the course of the school year 2018-19. For students opting for the IST Diploma (and not for the IB Diploma or Certificate/s), this fee will not be charged. Full refund of the IB Diploma Exam Fee will be given if written notification of withdrawal is submitted to school prior to the last school day before the winter holiday. After this date the IB Diploma Exam Fee is not refundable.

IB Diploma retakes are openly available to students in either the November or May sessions. Students must pay two fees: the re-examination fee to be paid to the IB but collected by IST, and the IST administration fee. These fees are varied in accordance with IB registration deadlines, with IST administration fees set at RMB1,200 for early registration and RMB2,400 for late registration.
