Instructions

Students can choose between the Full Payment Model, the 50-50 Payment Model or the Installment Payment Model. (Detailed explanation of the models will follow)

Each student will receive an Application Form for the Payment Model by email from the Finance Office or the form can be downloaded here (Fall) and here (Spring). Please submit the completed and signed form for Fall 2019 Semester to finance.students@webster.ac.at before 26th July 2019. Please make sure to indicate in the form if you plan to be a full time or a part time student and the number of credit hours you are planning to complete during the next semester. In case you are not registered for courses at the time when we send you your personal payment plan, we will calculate your tuition based on these credit hours.

From the Academic Year 2019-2020 onwards we will not charge a fee for late payment, but we will charge EUR 100 for late registration, that is registration after the last Friday before the semester/term starts (this does not apply to adds and drops if they do not change your total credit load). If you register for courses after this deadline, you will be automatically on the Full Payment Model, meaning that you won't be able to pay in Installments.

Changes of credit hours and related tuition fees will be adapted after the add/drop/withdrawal period and at the end of the semester. Refunds will be credited to the student accounts during the first week of the coming semester.

Please note, that the selected Payment Model can't be changed during the semester.

Full Payment Model

If you are on this Payment Model, you pay the whole semester tuition (100%) at the beginning of the semester, until the Friday before the courses start. This would mean tuition of EUR 10,300 for an Undergraduate Full Time student or EUR 6885 for a Graduate student taking 9 credit hour courses during the semester. The payment deadline is August 16th 2019 for Graduate students and August 23th 2019 for Undergraduate students in the Fall Semester, December 17th 2019 for Graduate students and 10th January 2020 for Undergraduate Students in the Spring Semester.

50-50 Payment Model

If you are on this Payment Model, you pay 50% of the tuition cost of the semester at the beginning of the semester, until the Friday before the courses start. After this you pay the other 50% at the end of the semester, on Dec 20 in Fall 2019 or May 15 in Spring 2020. 

* In case you choose the 50-50 payment option, we charge 2% interest on the final installment. The interest is payable with the payment of this last installment.

Installment Payment Model

If you are on this Payment Model, you pay 40% of the Tuition cost of the semester at the beginning of the semester, until the Friday before the courses start. After this you pay 15% at the end of each month (Sept 30, Oct 31, Nov 29, Dec 20 in Fall 2019, Feb 28, March 31, April 30, May 15 in Spring 2020).

* In case you choose the installment payment option, we charge 2% interest on the final four installments. The interest is payable with the payment of the last installment.

Please note that the Summer Term is excluded from these Models. In summer term each student needs to pay 100% tuition upfront until the last Friday before the start of Summer Term courses.

Personal Payment Plan

On the first week of August in the Fall Semester 2019 or the first week of December in the Spring Semester 2020 you will receive by email your personal payment plan with the exact amounts and payment deadlines. Please make sure to make your payment according to this information.

Please note, that the payment deadline is the date up until which the payment should be credited on the Webster Vienna Private University's account (and not the deadline for initiating the payment).

For students who enroll only in the second term of a semester (Fall 2 or Spring 2), the deadline for payment will be the week before the start of the term. They will need to pay the full tuition of the term at once, the Installment Payment Model is not available for them.

Important information for students receiving scholarships:

The Webster Vienna Training Scholarship (WVTS), the Webster Vienna Private University Scholarships (Distinction, Merit and Honor) and the Legacy Grant will be credited to the student account at the beginning of the semester and will be taken into consideration in the personal payment plan. If during the semester the credit load should change, influencing the tuition, the adjustment of the scholarship amount will be done at the end of the semester.

The Merit Award and the Borealis Scholarships will be credited at the end of the semester after checking that the GPA requirements are met.
