The Deposit is a one-time, refundable, non-interest bearing security deposit required to be paid to the School, and shall be held by the School for the duration of the student’s enrolment. The School has a first right to settle any outstanding international school fees or amounts owing to the School, either during the student’s attendance at the School, or after the student’s withdrawal, using the Deposit.

The Deposit, after deductions for any amounts owing to the School and in accordance with the School’s withdrawal and refund policies, will be returned to parents within 45 days after all withdrawal procedures have been completed.

Payment of the Deposit will not, in and of itself, guarantee a School placement; all other admission and School requirements must be met.

For students who require occasional transportation service, parents are asked to send their request to the School Office at least one day in advance with a payment of 150 per day.

School Lunch Fees

The School co-ordinates with an outside catering service company to provide lunches for students who do not wish to bring a packed lunch to school. Charges will be processed under a separate payment method between parent/guardian and the catering company.

School Uniform

Payment of tuition fees will entitle students to one set of uniforms each year.

Settlement of Payments

Any payments received by the School will be applied firstly towards the Deposit, if not yet settled. Any outstanding payments must be settled according to the School fees and deadlines above.

Late Payment Charge

A late payment charge of two percent (2%) per month, compounded monthly, will be charged on all School fees that are overdue. The School also reserves the right to give the places of students with overdue payment to new waiting applicants, meaning late payments put a child’s seat at risk.

Method of Payment
  1. Bank remittance

    Payment can be made by bank transfer payable to the School’s USD or RMB bank account. For easy identification, please forward a copy of your bank remittance advice with your child’s passport name to our Accounts Office. (See below)

Withdrawal

Withdrawal of a student from YCIS Chongqing is only confirmed upon receipt of a completed, signed Departure Notice Form or signed and dated letter, in advance of the desired withdrawal date. Departure Notice Form is available at the School Office. If a written notice of withdrawal is submitted to the School during a public holiday, it will be deemed received by the School on the first day of School following the public holiday. Any refunds of School fees will only be considered after the receipt of such notice of withdrawal.

Refund
  1. Application Fee:

    An Application Fee is an administrative fee that must be paid to initiate the application review and admission process. The Application Fee is non-refundable.

  2. Deposit:

    While the School reserves the right to deduct from the Deposit any amounts that are owed by the student or the parent/guardian to the School, this right does not diminish in any way the School’s absolute right to otherwise require payment and collection of such amounts through other means, when such amounts are due.

    In order to ensure that the Deposit is returned to the proper party, the official receipt issued by the School when the Deposit was first paid, must be returned to the School before the Deposit can be refunded.

    If an internal transfer is approved and the Deposit is required, the Deposit may be transferred from one Yew Chung International School to another. Adjustment of the Deposit amount may be required, subject to your child (ren)’s School of entry’s Fee Policy.

  3. Tuition Fees:

    The School makes advance commitments related to staffing, purchasing and other resources, based on confirmed enrolment, all of which have financial implications.

    Accordingly, should a parent/guardian decides to terminate a student’s study at the School, it is necessary for the School to be compensated for the early termination of the education services contract between the School and the parent, as commitments would have already been made by the School and there would be an indirect financial impact of implementing changes in scheduling and other arrangements. Depending on the time of year when the student withdraws, as well as when the written notice of withdrawal is submitted to the School, the amount of compensation for early termination required by the School may vary.

    The chart below summarizes how much of the Deposit and Tuition Fees already paid shall be returned to the parent/guardian.

    Fee Type Applicable Semester Actual Withdrawal Date Refund Condition

    Temporary Leave: For temporary leave, the parent/guardian must notify the School in advance, in writing and with reasons for the leave and a scheduled date of return to resume enrolment. There will not be any refund of all School fees for a student on leave. In the event that a student does not resume enrolment on the scheduled date nor notify the School to extend the duration of leave and continues to pay the required tuition and other fees, such a student will be considered withdrawn. If he or she returns later on, a non-refundable Application Fee must be paid again.

  4. Transportation Service:

    The written notification must be received at least one month in advance if the student no longer requires transportation service. The transportation service fees for the month in which the written notification is received as well as the fees for the following full calendar month will not be refunded. The remaining transportation service fees will be refunded. The transportation service fee is charged on monthly basis.

  5. School Lunch Fees:

    Any request for refunds with respect to School Lunch Fees should be made directly to the food service provider responsible for operating the School’s cafeteria.

    For any refund on School fees, the original Fapiao must be returned back to the School. Failure to do so will result in additional tax charges per government requirement.

    Any refund or release of School records is dependent upon the satisfactory completion of withdrawal procedures, the return of all School property, and the clearance of accounts with the School Office.
