TERMS AND CONDITIONS

Tuition Fee

School tuition fees are inclusive of text books, and are exclusive of uniforms, lunches, transport, and any learning support or specialty programmes.

Tuition and fees are payable in advance of attendance and are assessed in accordance with the fee structure established by GEMS. Tuition and fees are the primary source of the school’s operating budget and therefore prompt payment is necessary to ensure the continuing quality of the school’s programmes.

Payment of Fees

Registration fee of USD 100 is due at the time of application. This processing fee is non-refundable, non-transferable, and non-deductible. Once confirmation of admission has been received, a one-time admission fee of USD 500 (non-refundable and non-deductible) will also be required to secure enrolment at GEMS Cambridge International School, Nairobi.

Tuition fee invoices are sent to the fee sponsor on record, two months prior to the start of the academic year. Tuition payments can be paid in full, or are due on or before the 5th working day of August for Term 1, December for Term 2, and April for Term 3. A penalty of 2% per month will be applied to the outstanding balances not paid by the required due date.

If a student joins in the school in the middle of a term, the tuition fee applicable will be prorated, based on the number of full (commencing from the week of joining) weeks remaining and unexpired in the term.

In addition to a 2% penalty on outstanding balances, failure to pay such fees may result in:

  • Loss of the student’s place in the school
  • Withholding of their school reports, references, and/or examination results
  • Temporary or permanent expulsion or exclusion from school

Payment Method

Payment can be made in either USD or Kenyan Shillings (evidence of citizenship required) at exchange rates set by the School on the date of payment. Payments of fees and tuition are to be paid by cheque or wire transfer directly to the school bank account. An instruction regarding the wire transfer process is located on the side column of this page.

Refunds

Tuition fees, once paid, are non-refundable except when paid for a full year and a student is withdrawn prior to commencement of a term. Attendance for any portion of a term will preclude a refund of tuition fees. Tuition will be refunded only after the parent or guardian has submitted the request in writing to the school admissions office. Tuition refunds are provided to the original payee.

Please note, the registration fee and admission fee are non-refundable.
