PAYMENT OF ACCOUNTS (for residency learners)

Learners must have arrangements to pay their account in full at the time of registration. No learner will be admitted without a viable plan for payment. This may include payment of their semester fees in full on registration day or fifty percent deposit of tuition, boarding and accommodation and full fees for room and key deposit, registration, learner Body fee with written guarantees from one or more sponsors which include specific dates on which payment of any outstanding fees will be paid within the semester. Outstanding amounts are to be settled in three equal monthly instalments on 1 April, 1 May and 1 June for the first semester and 1 September, 1 October and 1 November for second semester. If such a guarantee is not honoured, (I) a penalty of R100.00 per month shall be added to the account of the learner for each month the account is not up to-date. If the account is not yet settled after 1 May for first semester and 1 November for second semester, (II) the student will not be allowed to sit for exams. Results and certificates shall not be issued to any learner whose account is not settled. If any learner plans to pay part of the fees through work bursary money, he/she will be required to sign an agreement form promising to work for the agreed amount. If such a promise is broken, that learner will be required to pay in cash the remaining amount due, failure of which (I) or (II) shall apply.

Sponsored Learners will be required to provide the Vice-Principal for Administration with a completed form from the person, church, or organisation that is providing the sponsorship. An agreement will be entered into. If the agreement is not honoured, (I) or (II) will affect the learner.

Textbooks
Students may order textbooks in the Administrator’s Office before the beginning of each term. Every effort is made to keep their prices as low as possible. These books may be purchased on cash basis only. A learner may need ±R 2 200.00 per year depending on the specific courses taken and the current cost of books. Learners are expected to purchase a textbook or study guide for each module for which they register.

This form is to be completed and returned to Administrator. When all application documentation has been received and favourably evaluated, the bursary application will be submitted to the Africa South Field Bursary Committee for consideration of a bursary grant. Bursaries are granted for the total period of study equal amount to be paid toward tuition for each term required for completion of the programme of study.

Scholarships

These are available for returning full time learners only. They are based upon academic performance and are awarded, upon decision of the Senate, at each graduation service, toward the following year’s studies. The scholarship will be awarded once off during the first semester of the following year:

  • Logos — for 4 returning learners with a CGPA of 3 (80%) or above
  • Agape – for 4 returning learners with a CGPA of between 2.5 and 3 (73-80%)
  • Karis — for 2 returning learners who have attained the most improvement in their studies
  • Koinonia — for 2 returning learners who have shown diligence (careful and persevering effort) in their studies


Work Study Bursaries

Limited learner employment is available to assist residence diploma learners in paying their accounts. It is advisable that learners seek part-time employment in the nearby residential and commercial centres.

Should a learner be unable to acquire such employment, application must be made through the Vice Principal for Learner Services for employment on campus. Various types of work are available, e.g. cleaning, construction, maintenance, kitchen, etc. If work on campus is desired, please state your qualifications and needs upon application.
