									Fee Structure
2010 - 2011
Tuition and other Charges
The annual tuition and other fees are subsidized by the University for Pakistani
students. Overseas candidates are charged the full cost payable in US dollars only. The
University reviews its tuition and fees annually to cover inflation and other cost
increases. Therefore, students are advised to plan their financial obligations for the
course of study accordingly.

For overseas students who have Pakistani or dual citizenship, factors affecting liability
for higher tuition include any one or more of the following criteria:

a) Their parents' residence and source of income during the previous three
   years;
b) Whether the student was educated in Pakistan or abroad during the three
   years prior to the application for admission;
c) Whether the student is eligible for State-supported education overseas;
d) Whether parents are reimbursed educational expenses by their employer.

Foreign citizens and Pakistani nationals who will be required to pay the higher tuition
are advised to plan their financial support from sources available to them before
applying for admission. The University may consider applications for financial
assistance where such students have demonstrated financial need and have
thoroughly explored all other possible sources of assistance.

If the applicant's parents are Pakistani citizens deputed to a government mission
overseas, such students will be charged the fee prescribed for students in Pakistan.
Documentary evidence will however, be required in such cases.

Applicants doubtful of their fee status should seek clarification from the Registrar's
Office before applying.

Successful applicants are required to pay a component of the fee on acceptance to the
programme and the balance over the year of study.

Students defaulting on payments within the due dates may be suspended and/or barred
from classes and examinations until the clearance of dues in accordance with the
University's policies and procedures.

In cases where a student withdraws or is asked to withdraw from the University after
commencement of a term, tuition for the entire term will be charged.

Payments may be made in cash or through a bank draft in favour of Aga Khan
University. Personal cheques are not acceptable.

University Financial Assistance Programme
Since admission at AKU is needs blind, the University operates a Financial Assistance
Programme which ensures that no Pakistani student, resident in Pakistan, who
qualifies for admission to the full time academic programmes at AKU are excluded
because of inability to pay tuition and fees.

Through the University's financial assistance programme, students are awarded soft
loans and grants-in-aid in some instances. The loan is payable in easy instalments
after graduation from the programme. Details should be obtained from the Student
Financial Assistance and Counselling Office.

For the 2009-2010 academic year, about one-half of the students enrolled were
awarded financial assistance by the University.

Assistance is offered on the basis of demonstrated need as evaluated by the University
from data provided by students and their families and other avenues that the
University may deem appropriate. Every student applying for financial assistance
must also demonstrate that he or she has thoroughly explored all other possible sources
of assistance. However, every student is required to make some contribution towards
fees, living expenses and other costs, so as to not totally depend on the University for
Assistance. Continuation of financial assistance is conditional upon yearly assessment
of financial needs.

Financial assistance arranged by the University is intended to favour and encourage
qualified students from families with low income, as well as those from rural and
underdeveloped areas of the country who have no means to pay for their education at
AKU.

Applications for financial assistance for students joining in October 2010 will be
acceptable within seven working days after receipt of the admission letter. Application
forms are available online. These are also available from the Student Financial
Assistance and Counselling Office.
