Fees and payment
We accept the following credit cards:
- American Express
If you indicate on your application that you would like to pay by credit, Continuing Studies will send you an email message with a link to an online payment form. Once your payment has been processed you will receive a receipt to confirm payment.
Important: credit cards often have limits on international transactions, so your payment could be delayed or unsuccessful because of this limit. Please check with your bank first.
