Once you have enrolled for semesters online, you will be sent an invoice for the relevant semester fees, which must be paid by 31 July for the fall semester and by 31 January for the spring semester.

Module booking access, student ID, certificates

Once payment has been received, you will be given access to book modules, and a valid student ID and proof-of-matriculation vouchers will also be sent to you. Please be aware that it may take several days for actual payment to be received once you have initiated payment. You are therefore advised to pay your semester fees without delay.
