The discount will be reduced from the first year's payment. Detailed instructions on how to pay the tuition fee will be sent along with an acceptance letter. Please notice that applicants admitted to Master's degree are not entitled to early bird discount


Refund policy

If an applicant recieves a negative residence permit decision and based on that is not able to start studies at the beginning of fall semester, the tuition fee can be refunded. In order to be able to get the tuition fee back, applicant needs to send a copy of the negative decision from the Immigration Office to admissions@centria.fi, as well as attach a copy of an original payment receipt and filled 'tuition fee refund' application. Also, the applicant has to be able to prove that he or she has applied for the residence permit well in time (as soon as possible after receiving the admission letter and paying the tuition fee), to be able to start the studies at the beginning of his or her starting semester.

Applicant is not able to apply for a tuition fee refund if he or she has withdrawn the residence permit application himself or herself and that way interrupted the residence permit process and forced the Immigration Office to abort the application process.

Tuition fees will not be refunded after the study year in question has ended.

Also tuition fee will not be refunded in case the student has started his/her studies online.
