Fee due dates

Find out when your fees are due.

You need to pay your fees by the first day of your study. If you enrolled after the first day of the semester or quarter, your fees are due on this date.

International students

If you’re an international student, studying in New Zealand, you need to pay your tuition fees in enough time for your student visa application to be issued, by the relevant start date.

If you're applying for a student visa from outside of New Zealand, you will most likely be required by Immigration New Zealand to pay your fees for an entire year. 

If you’re an international student outside of New Zealand and studying with us online or at a China Learning Centre (CLC), you are not required to hold a student visa and therefore should pay your fees in full by the first day of the relevant semester.

International students enrolled in a full-year course must pay the full year’s fees at the start of their first semester.

For more information about visas, please see Visa information

For further assistance, please contact Immigration New Zealand.
