Tuition fees

Tuition fees for higher education are the enrolment fees you pay to be allowed to study. The exact amount you pay depends on various factors:

  • whether you meet the financial requirements set by the Study Allowance Department to qualify for an allowance;
  • the number of credits you enrol for (only for non-scholarship and near-scholarship students);
  • the balance of your study credits (only for non-scholarship students).

There are three rates that could apply:

  1. 1

    The non-scholarship rate

    This is the standard fee that you pay if you do not meet the financial requirements set by the Study Allowance Department, which means you are not entitled to a study allowance from the Flemish government.

  2. 2

    The near-scholarship rate

    You pay this intermediate rate if the income on which the Study Allowance Department bases the assessment is no more than € 3,285 (amount for 2021-2022) higher than the permitted income limit for a study allowance. You are also entitled to this rate if you are not entitled to a study allowance 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 rate

    This is the lowest rate and is always a fixed amount, regardless of your study credit or the number of credits you use. You pay this fee if you meet the financial requirements set by the Study Allowance Department.

    Please note! In this case, you will usually also be entitled to a study allowance 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 your tuition fees by email.
In the first phase, you only pay the fixed fees for your enrolment. After approval of your Individual Study Programme (ISP), you will receive a second invoice by email.

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

The are other, programme-specific costs that you must take into account as well as your tuition fees. The costs vary per programme. If you meet the income requirements for a study allowance from the Flemish government, you can enrol at a reduced rate for the tuition fees: the scholarship rate.

A few forms of financial assistance

If you would like to pay your tuition fees in instalments, ask the staff at the Social Services Department about a payment plan for your tuition fees as soon as you receive your invoice. Find out more here.

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

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

The KMO-portefeuille offers grants for schooling with accredited services, which means that the government will pay part of your tuition fees.
Business owners or people in the liberal professions can use this scheme. More information is available from the website www.agentschapondernemen.be.

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

Questions for the Social Services Department

If you don’t have study-allowance or joker credits left, or you are enrolled with a credit contract, you do not meet the education requirements (any more), but you do meet the financial requirements, you could also qualify for the scholarship/near-scholarship rate! Always get in touch with the Social Services Department on your campus and they will check it for you.
