Tables with fees for the academic year 2019/2020
A student is obliged to pay the tuition fees by the following deadlines:
• 5th October for the winter semester,
• 5th March for the summer semester.
Payment divided into three instalments:
a) for the winter semester:
• 15th October, the first instalment,
• 15th November, the second instalment,
• 15th December, the third instalment.
b) for the summer semester:
• 15th March, the first instalment,
• 15th April, the second instalment,
• 15th May, the third instalment.
The tuition fee is considered paid when the amount due is booked in the University’s account.
When a student does not pay the full tuition fee by the relevant deadline, it is assumed that the fee will be divided into instalments.
The one-time payment entails a discount of PLN 150 in relation to the payment divided into three instalments. If the one-time payment is made after the deadline, however, the discount does not apply.
Tuition fees should be transferred to individual student accounts. Students of full-time and part-time programmes can check the bank account number by logging in to USOSweb.
The bank account number can be checked in USOSweb, under FOR ALL (DLA WSZYSTKICH).
Students who study several different programmes at different faculties have several different bank account numbers, depending on the number of faculties.
Technical assistance related to the USOSweb system can be obtained by contacting the Study IT Service Department.
