Payment Terms

1. An application fee of SEK 1500 (1 child), SEK 3000 (2 children), SEK 4500 (3 or more children) is payable at the time of initial application. This fee is a one off payment and not refundable.

2. Once an offer of a place at the school is made, an invoice for the Enrolment Fee will be sent. Payment of this secures the place. A failure to pay this invoice within the stated time will result in the loss of a place. This fee is a one off payment and not refundable.

3. To obtain the reduced fees outlined in the Fees Schedule, families must be registered with the Swedish Taxation Authority and have a valid home address in Sweden. This enables the Tax Authority to issue a personal number which is required for AIS to be able to obtain subsidies.

4. It is the parent/guardian’s responsibility to notify the school and the Tax Authorities of any change of address in Sweden, as this may also affect the issuing of subsidies to the school. Failure to register with the Tax Authority or update relevant information, e.g. change of address, may result in the school not receiving the appropriate subsidies. Parents/guardians will be liable for the resulting shortfall.

5. Pupils who enrol mid-term, e.g. after Easter and after October break, will pay 50% of the term fee.

6. American International School will invoice twice a year with 50% of annual Tuition Fees due per term. For existing parents, invoice will be sent for payment as follows:

Term one – Payment by April 30th

Term two – Payment by November 30th

Tuition Fees include – all lunches and school trips

Tuition Fees include – all lunches and school trips

7. All invoicing will be done electronically. It is therefore essential that the school is provided with correct invoicing information. Where a company will be paying the tuition FEES the school requires the following information:

  1.  The invoicing address (which may be different from the company’s Swedish address).
  2.  The e-mail address of the person responsible for processing the invoice.
  3.  Any relevant references to be included on the invoice e.g. family name, PO number etc.

8. All outstanding tuition fees must be settled by the due date shown on the invoice. If outstanding fees have not been settled by the due date, placement at the school cannot be guaranteed for the following term.

9. A late payment fee of SEK 500 will be added if invoice remains unpaid after the due date. If an additional reminder needs to be sent, an extra late payment fee of SEK 2500 will be added.

10. The Board of Governors reserves the right to adjust these fees as necessary.

Government Subsidies

Children, who turn 6 by December 31 of their current school year, and children over the age of 6 are eligible to local authority funding which is paid by the kommun (local council) to the school.

Please note that fees for children who are not registered with their local kommun (i.e. who do not have a Swedish personal number) are substantially higher than those listed above.

To obtain this subsidy, children must have a Swedish personal number which is issued by the Swedish Tax Authority. Upon enrolment, the school should be provided with the personal number and the school will then apply for the subsidy.

Sibling Discount

American International School offers the following Sibling Discount:

Entitlement – Tuition fee
Third Sibling – 5% discount
Fourth and subsequent siblings – 10% discount

The discount is deducted from the youngest sibling and is only applicable while 3 or more children are attending school at the same time.

Refund Policy

Tuition Fee is non-refundable and payable in full even if a student only attends for part of the school year. There is no refund if a student leaves before the school year ends.
