Capital Fee and Entrance Capital Fee
AAS intends to allocate the Capital and Entrance Capital Fees toward school buildings and facilities, but retains absolute discretion in allocating to the Capital Fund. The Capital and Entrance Capital Fees represent an integral part of the overall school fees and are not refundable even if the student leaves the school prior to the completion of the school year.
The Registration Fee, assessed on new students or on students returning to AAS after more than one year of absence, is non-refundable except in situations where enrollment is denied due to space limitations.
Additional school fees cover additional services, such as: external examination fees, graduation fees, yearbook, or up to 100% of the cost of transportation for athletic, arts or activity trips. Such fees may be assessed in either EURO €, US $ or Bulgarian Leva BGN for other purposes and will be paid in cash at the cashier’s office or via bank transfer.
Registration and entrance and annual capital fees are non-refundable. Tuition fees are refundable on a prorated basis by payment as follows,
- Student enrolled 1 – 45 school days of a semester: tuition is prorated on a daily basis.
- Student enrolled 46 – 90 school days of a semester: 100% of the semester’s tuition is charged.
Please note that a semester is 90 school days (this excludes weekends and holidays).
Tuition invoices for the school year will be issued to the billing address specified by parents on their child’s Admission Application. The first payment will be due by June 20 prior to the start of the new school year.
You will receive two invoices, issued in May (for the 1st Semester of next school year), with a due date of June 20, and in the beginning of December (for 2nd Semester), with a due date between January 22-26. If there is an unpaid balance, parents will receive periodic statements reflecting the current balance owed, accumulated surcharges and any payments made to date. It is always the responsibility of the parent to ensure payments are made when due.
Registration, Entrance and Capital Fees are to be paid in their entirety by the June 20th payment date.
There will be a late fee charge of €250.00 for any payments made after July 1st and 10% surcharge for any payments made after September 1st for the 1st semester invoices issued in May.
