First installment upon registration: has to cover 50% of the tuition.
The remaining payment for tuition can be divided in two installments payable at the latest by December 15th of the academic year the student is registered for Summer School.
Exception to this plan are only possible if the Cooperating University, the College or the Cooperating Institute, if any, guarantees payments in case the balance is in default. However there cannot be more than four installments, the latest by December 15th of the academic year. If the installments are paid by Credit Card, the expenses according to the Credit Card Centers in Switzerland are CHF 50 per installment.
