2018 Fee Structure


Please read this first:

1. College Fees encompass all amounts owing to the Bible Institute of SA by a student, his/her parent or sponsor.

2. All Tuition fees are payable in advance each semester, and are due on or before the student registration date.

3. BISA offers a 5% tuition discount if the tuition fee is paid on or before the first registration date each semester.

4. If the student has not settled all his/her tuition fee by the end of February a penalty interest will apply.

5. Semesters end in June and in December. Entry to the next semester will be refused if the student has any outstanding debt to the college from the previous semester.

6. Students who reside on campus will be charged an Accommodation Fee and are required to pay a refundable deposit (conditions apply), plus a minimum of 25% of the semester’s accommodation fee on or before taking room occupation.

7. Foreign students from first world countries such as North America, Europe, Australia, New Zealand and the Far East pay tuition fees at 200% i.e. 2 to 1 of ZAR-rate:

  • The student is advised to notify BISA of incoming payments that are to be credited to his/her student account, particularly if it is an electronic transfer. Use your student name as a reference when depositing into the BISA account so that we can allocate your payment correctly.

  • Please note that BISA FEES are significantly subsidised.

 Methods of Payment:

  1. Payments may be made to the College in the form of Cheque, electronic transfer or direct deposit. Please note that BISA does not have Credit Card facilities.

  2. Cash payments are accepted but we would prefer the student to make a deposit directly into the college’s account rather than handing over large sums of money. Please send us a copy of the bank's deposit slip.

  3. Payments issuing from foreign countries can be made via bank draft or, preferably, a telegraphic transfer (TT) - as this is a safer option. Please include the cost of the bank service fees for drafts and TT's.
