Tuition Fees

Due to an amendment in the 2002 Universities Act (BGBl. I No. 18/2013), beginning Summer Semester 2013 all Austrian universities require the payment of tuition fees.

Beginning January 9, 2017, please check your tuition fee status for Summer Semester 2017 at (menut item "Tuition Fees")

If you have any questions regarding tuition fees, please come to the Admissions Office during office hours BEFORE PAYING FEES and bring any required documents (residence permit, passport, asylum notification, etc.).

IMPORTANT: The Austrian Student Union fee is not considered a part of tuition fees and must be invariably paid by all students each semester.

If the required fees are not paid in full or only partially paid during the admissions and registration period by February 5 at the latest (grace period to April 30) for Summer Semester or by September 5 (grace period to November 30) for Winter Semester the student will be dropped from studies and/or not admitted to studies.

A new regulation of the obligatory tuition fee for students from third-countries was enacted in a new amendment to the University Act. Apart from certain exceptions (e.g. "Aufenthaltsbewilligung Studierende"), starting on October 1st, 2017, these students are put in the same category as students from EU countries and only have to pay tuition fee if they do not finish their studies within the legally stipulated period of study, given a two-term tolerance period.
In order to administer these new regulations, which can prove advantageous in your case, we need your current residence permit (VISA) as soon as possible, absolutely before November 30th, 2017. You can send us a copy of your residence permit via e-mail to tuitionfee(/\t) Since a change in your personal obligation to pay tuition fee is possible, we ask you to delay your payment until you have been contacted by us.
