Can I change to a different payment plan?

We offer various payment plans for students (availability varies according to your country of residence). If you change your payment plan, all your used study points (and any associated fees) will be billed immediately at your current fee per study point before the new payment plan takes effect.

For example:

A student on a monthly payment plan has used 45 Study Points but has only been invoiced for 35 Study Points. The student requests the Bursar office to change to a Modular payment plan. He will be immediately invoiced for the 10 unpaid study points at the cost per study point of his current monthly plan. Once that is settled, he will start receiving invoices according to the Modular payment plan. In other words, this means you may receive a larger invoice than usual when you change your payment plan.
