The right to study
A student who does not pay the annual fee in time can expect to have forfeited his/her right to study in the CMM program. A student is not formally registered/enrolled at the program until the annual fee has been paid.
The annual fee is non-refundable. However, in exceptional circumstances, such as serious illness, an accepted student can apply for a refund, though each case is individually evaluated. If a student applies for a refund he/she should apply to the Director of Education and Teaching where the reasons are explained and necessary evidence and certificates presented. If a refund is agreed the student will receive half of the fee refunded.
