Tuition fees: special situations

  • If you are taking two programmes in The Netherlands , which are both covered by the same statutory tuition fee, you have to pay the statutory tuition fee only once.

    Make sure that you ask for a “Proof of Payment of Tuition Fee” (“Bewijs van Betaald Collegegeld”) in time from the Dutch institute to which you paid the statutory tuition fee and send it to: Erasmus University Rotterdam, Department CBI, Antwoordnummer (Freepost) 2791, 3000 VB Rotterdam or hand in the BBC at Erasmus Student Service Centre before the start of the study programme . Do not forget to mention your name and student number.

    Please note that you are only eligible for a reduction or exemption if you pay the statutory fee at Erasmus University as well as at the other institute. Make sure that we receive the BBC before the start of the study programme.

  • You have to pay Erasmus University the full amount owed in case  you do not qualify for the statutory tuition fee.  

  • You have enrolled as a student at Erasmus University Rotterdam for more programmes at different fees. You will only be obliged to pay the tuition fee once, at the highest rate.

  • You enrol at Erasmus University Rotterdam in the same academic year for a Bachelor’s degree programme, followed by a Master’s degree programme, to which different institutional fees apply: you will be required to pay 1/12 of the fee monthly that applies to the Bachelor’s degree programme and, from the start of the Master’s degree programme, 1/12 of the fee of the Master’s degree programme.

  • When you receive word from Studielink that your registration is complete and that you should pay a certain tuition fee for your registration, while based on newer information Erasmus University Rotterdam (EUR) finds out you should pay a different type of tuition fee tariff at a later time, EUR can make interim changes to the tuition fee you're required to pay for your registration.
    Usually, such an interim change stems from a delay in the processing time of newly achieved diploma's (in Studielink). This process should take up to six weeks to complete, but it can take longer. Thus, it can take six weeks or longer before EUR notices any changes in your certification, and make the interim changes in your tuition fee tariff that reflect this new information. Once such a change is made, you'll be notified via Studielink.

    Example of an interim change (tariff increase):
    EUR can increase the tuition fee you must pay for your registration when you're about to achieve a bachelor's degree at the time you register for a bachelor programme at EUR, but are already admissible based on another diploma you achieved previously. EUR can then admit you based on the previously achieved diploma. Yet once EUR receives new information on the bachelor programme you recently completed and it becomes clear you in fact registered for a second bachelor programme, the tuition fee you're required to pay is changed from the legal tuition fee tariff into the institutional fee tariff. You will then receive a message concerning this change via Studielink.
