IICS Tuition & Fees 2022 – 2023 School Year

The Istanbul International Community School is a not-for-profit school. Operational costs are covered by school fees and the remaining revenue is re-invested into our school to foster a cycle of continuous improvement.

1. APPLICATION FEE: (8% VAT included)

The application fee is a standard one-time charge that supports the administration of the application process and the development and maintenance of the systems used in this process. This helps us to ensure a good standard of service while being fair and consistent to all our applicants. As such, applications will only be processed upon receipt of the application fee.

The fee is only refundable if the applicant withdraws their accepted/approved application due to a waiting period of more than 2 academic years on the waiting list.

2. CAPITAL LEVY FEE: (Grades 1 through 12, 8% VAT included)

The capital levy fee allows the school to make investments in learning resources, technology and physical infrastructure that fall outside the scope of its annual operating budget. It is a one-time charge for newly enrolled students starting in Grade 1 or above. There is no capital levy fee for students in the Early Years Program (EY3 to EY5). The fee will only be due when they advance to Grade 1.

The capital levy fee is due on August 1st, 2022. The fee is non-refundable.

3. ENROLLMENT FEE: (EY 3-4 – $5,250, EY 5 to Grade 12 – $8,250)

The enrollment fee is an annual fee applicable to all students. The school cannot guarantee a student’s place if the enrollment fee has not been paid. Students cannot be registered for the school year if the fee has not been paid by the due date.

For newly enrolled students, the enrollment fee is due 10 days after acceptance to secure their place. For re-enrolling students the fee is due by May 13th, 2022. The fee is non-refundable.

4. TUITION FEE: (yearly recurring)

Tuition Fees are charged annually, per student, per academic year. Payment is required on acceptance of an offer of enrolment or at the time of re-enrolment.

Families with more than one child concurrently enrolled in IICS will benefit from a 5% discount on school fees for the younger child, and any additional children thereafter.

To benefit from a full payment discount (2%), tuition fees must be fully paid by August 1st, 2022. Tuition fees may also be paid in 5 installments in August, September, October, November, and December 2022. Please see below for further details.

*A deposit of 200 USD has been included as a service charge for late payment in the first installment. It will be re-funded if all payments are made on time. If an installment is not paid in full by its due date, a late payment penalty will be applied at an equivalent annual rate of 8% of the installment.
