Tuition fee

The tuition fee in higher education is the registration fee you pay to be allowed to study. The exact amount you pay depends on various factors:

  • Whether you meet the financial conditions of the Scholarship Department to determine your entitlement to a scholarship;
  • the number of credits you register for (only for non-scholarship and near-scholarship students);
  • the balance of your learning account (only for non-scholarship students).

Three rates apply:

  1. 1

    The non-scholarship fee

    You pay this regular fee if you do not meet the financial conditions of the Scholarship Department and are therefore not entitled to a scholarship from the Flemish government.

  2. 2

    The near-scholarship fee

    You pay this intermediate rate if the income on which the scholarship department bases itself is at most € 3.227 (amount 2020-2021) higher than the allowed income limit for a scholarship. You are also entitled to this rate if you are not entitled to a scholarship from the Flemish government because your parents own a second property and you are rejected on the basis of a KI (cadastral income) for borrowed capital.

  3. 3

    The scholarship fee

    This is the lowest fee and is always a fixed amount, regardless of your learning credit or the number of credits you take. You will pay this fee if you meet the financial conditions of the Scholarship  Department.

    Please note! In this case you will usually also be entitled to a scholarship from the Flemish government.

How and when do I pay my tuition fees?

After your enrolment or re-enrolment has been processed, you will receive an invoice for the payment of your tuition fees by e-mail.
In a first phase, you only pay the fixed fees of your registration. After approval of your Individual Study Programme (ISP), you will receive a second invoice via e-mail.

You pay your tuition fees by bank transfer before the due date mentioned on the invoice.

In addition to the tuition fee, you should also count on education specific costs. The costs vary per programme. If you meet the income criteria for the scholarship from the Flemish government, you can enrol at a reduced tuition fee: the scholarship fee.

Financial compensation

Would you like to pay your tuition fees in instalments? As soon as you receive your invoice, ask a staff member of the social services department at your campus about a payment plan for your tuition fees. Read more about it here.

If you combine work with studying, in certain cases you may be entitled to training vouchers to pay your tuition fees.

If you are registered with the VDAB as a job-seeker and you meet a number of conditions, you can study while retaining your unemployment benefit without having to be available for work. You can find more information here.

The KMO-portefeuille offers grants for training with accredited service providers. In this way you can have part of your tuition paid by the government.
Entrepreneurs or liberal professions can make use of this. More information can be found on the website www.agentschapondernemen.be. (website only in Dutch)

For more information please contact the Student Administrative Services (sa@odisee.be).

  • Only the tuition fee can be paid via KMO-portefeuille.
  • This means you cannot pay for course material, sports card, culture card, insurance, access to digital learning environment for exam contracts and the administrative costs charged upon de-registering.
  • The application to the KMO-portefeuille must be submitted within two weeks after the start of the training! Afterwards it can no longer be accepted.
  • The start date of the training is the start date of the academic year or your actual enrolment date.
  • When you apply, you must always mention the correct tuition fee. Keep this in mind when you register and when drawing up your ISP.
  • As service provider you choose Odisee - Graduate and Bachelor programmes with recognition number DV.O100326.

Questions for the social service department

Do you no longer have a scholarship or joker account? Enrolled with a credit contract? You do not meet the educational conditions (any more), but you do meet the financial conditions? Then you may also qualify for the scholarship/near scholarship fee! Always contact the social service department of your campus to check this for you.
