Please go to a bank in Beijing to convert
your currency to Chinese yuan for your tuition and daily expenses.
Due to the daily fluctuation of currency exchange rates, the bank usually offers you a "buy" rate that is a few percent points off the midpoint rate.
The school requires the tuition in the full amount, while the student is expected to prepare a few percent of extra budget to cover the loss from the exchange "buy" rate.
The following are the methods of payments:
- The first option is wire transfer. You can open your own account
at a bank in Beijing. Then you can wire a transfer from your home bank to
your new account. It takes about 2 business days for the wired money to reach
your new account. Then you can use your bank account in Beijing to pay for tuition and
Credit cards, such as MasterCard and Visa card. This is the second convenient means.
Cash, that is no more than $5000 USD or equivalent. Amount over $5000 needs to be declared at the custom.
It is a good idea to prepare for all these types of payments if possible. For example, you can carry credit cards, bank card and some
cash with you. If there is a hold time on electric transactions, you can use the cash to cover the first month's tuition and living expense at least.
On Time Payment:
If your study term is shorter than a year, the tuition and fees should be paid in full
at the time of enrollment.
If your term of study is longer than a year, tuition and fees should be paid on a yearly basis.
Late payments can result in suspension of class.
