School Fees

2021-2022 Fee Schedule

Application Fee

A non-refundable application fee of RMB 2,500 applies to all new students seeking admission to YCIS Beijing. The Application Fee is an administrative fee that initiates the application review and admission process. 

RMB 20,000

The Deposit is a one-time, **refundable, non-interest-bearing security deposit required to be paid to the School. The School shall hold it for the duration of the student’s enrollment.  The School has the right to settle any outstanding fees or amounts owing to the School either prior, during or after the student’s attendance at the school using the Deposit.

Following deductions for any amounts due to the School and in line with the School’s Departure & Refund Policy and Procedure, the Deposit will be refunded to the parents within 45 days after all required procedures have been completed. 

Payment of the Deposit will not, in and of itself, guarantee a school placement; applicants must first meet all other admission and school requirements.
