Tuition

At the end of 3 full years (from date of issue) the device is fully owned by the family. Students attending less than 3 years may purchase their device based on a buyout plan available from the accounting department.

Payment/Billing

Tuition is payable in RMB. Late penalties apply. Payment in US Dollars or another currency must be arranged prior to payment with the accounting office.

New Students Enrolling Mid-Year and after June 1st for the Next Academic Year

Billing for school tuition and capital levy will be sent upon acceptance and is due immediately. If payment is not received within 10 working days the seat will not be reserved. Students cannot start school until the payment is made. If a student withdraws between June 1st and June 30th, the paid invoice will be refunded less RMB 12,000. Students who withdraw after July 1st will be refunded 40% of the full tuition paid. Please refer to the withdrawal policy.

Annual Re-registration for Returning/Continuing Students

Each March parents will be asked to confirm their attendance for the following academic year. The tuition and capital levy will be invoiced in April and is due no later than June 1st. A seat is not guaranteed unless the fee has been fully paid. If a continuing student withdraws their application before June 1st, a full refund will be made. If a student withdraws between June 1st and June 30th, the paid invoice will be refunded less RMB 12,000. Students who withdraw after July 1st will be refunded 40% of the full tuition paid. Please refer to the withdrawal policy.

Application Fee

A non-refundable application processing fee must be paid to complete the application process. The application fee may be paid by wire transfer or by Union Pay in the Jingshan office. Enrolled students who withdraw and reapply will not need to pay an additional application fee. Applicants who receive a letter of acceptance but choose not to attend must pay the application fee to initiate the re-application process. The application fee is valid for the academic year for which the application is submitted. If your child is placed in the wait pool, the application fee remains valid only if the application is kept active by renewing the application in March.

Capital Levy

This one time fee is non-transferable and non-refundable. The capital levy is assessed (regardless of entry date) on all new students from the Priority Two and Three categories for K-12 in the international program and new students enrolled in the French bilingual program in CP-CM2. Students enrolled in the ECC program are exempt from the capital levy fee until the year they enter kindergarten. This fund supports future facility enhancements and long term planning and other capital expenses such as construction, technology, furniture and fixtures. If a family in either of these categories has more than one student entering the school, either during one school year or over a number of years, the capital levy per child is:

  • 100% First two children
  • 50% Third child
  • 25% Fourth child
  • 0% Fifth child

*Capital Levy payment plan. The capital levy fee can be made in one payment or in two or three annual installments with a service fee. A Priority Two or Three student who had previously attended SIS and paid the capital levy fee in full is not assessed the levy when re-enrolling in the school.


Late Entry Policy

For new students enrolling after November 1st of the school year until January 8th, the tuition will be 70% of the full year’s tuition. For new students enrolling on or after January 9th until April 3rd, the tuition will be 50% of the full year’s tuition. For new students enrolling on or after April 4th of the school year, the tuition will be 30% of the full year’s tuition.

Withdrawal Policy

If a student withdraws from the school at any time prior to January 31st, 40% of the full tuition paid will be refunded. If a student withdraws from February 1st - March 31st, 20% will be refunded. No other refunds for early withdrawals can be considered. Withdrawal forms are available at the Bayside campus and in the Jing Shan administrative office. Forms should be submitted 30 days prior to the student’s last day.

Overdue Payments

In the case of financial delinquency, all school records will be withheld. Any student whose tuition is outstanding will not be allowed to attend school until payment is made. Late penalties apply. Questions about bills and payments should be directed to the accounting office.
