Admissions

After reviewing information concerning our academic and social programs, admissions requirements, and—more generally—what benefits are realized by those who join our exciting and dedicated community here in beautiful Salzburg, Austria, you may decide you would like to apply for admission. 

Be certain, first, that all of your most important questions have been answered by our competent and very experienced staff of administrators. Then, follow the steps below to successfully submit an admissions application for review.

We do not have an application deadline and application materials can be sent in at any time. 

If you require a visa to enter Austria, you will need to obtain a student visa from the nearest Austrian Consulate to your place of residence before arriving for the school year in September. Since this can take up to 8 weeks, it is suggested that the application be submitted before the end of June.  For application purposes, copies or scans of transcripts or other official documents are sufficient.  Please do not send original documents as a part of your admissions application.  Upon acceptance, original, certified transcripts will be requested and filed in the office. 
 
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us at any time; we’d be pleased to assist you and answer your questions.

Additional Costs

Capital Assessment Fee: A fee of €2,500.00 is assessed to first-year students.  This is charged singly per family if more than one child is enrolling.  

Incidentals Account:  All full and five-day boarding students are required to have a personal incidentals account funded at € 1,500.00 with the school to cover additional personal expenses that might occur during the school year. This is not a fee, but money set aside for the individual student and used for pocket money distribution, at-cost electives, laundry, sports, or activities fees, travel money, etc., and is managed by the school’s accountant.

Other Possible Expenses

Sports Team Membership Fee – Students who are involved in the volleyball, soccer, and basketball teams at AIS-Salzburg pay a €100 membership fee per team they participate in. These funds help cover the costs of uniforms, materials, tournament hosting and organization, rental of facilities, and some of the travel
costs.

Laundry Charges (Boarders only):  Laundry is done for all full-and 5-day boarders by the school cleaning staff and a charge of € 75.00 per trimester is charged (€ 225.00 for the school year).

Visa & Local Medical Insurance (Boarders Only):  All costs associated with the application for and renewal of student visas through the Austrian authorities are passed on to the parents or guardians.  For those who are not EU citizens, the Austrian government requires the purchase of a local medical insurance policy before granting the 9-month student visa.  The cost of this insurance is approximately € 1,200.00.

Elective course fees: All students at AIS-Salzburg must enroll in at least one elective course each trimester. Although the tuition covers all costs for most of these courses, there are some that require additional financial coverage. These include individual tutorials in German and individual music lessons. These charges can be deducted from the students’ incidentals account or paid directly to the school accountant.

Payment Schedule

When parents and students are informed of acceptance to AIS-Salzburg, invoices for the appropriate tuition and fees are sent by the school accountant. The tuition deposit (approximately 25% of the total tuition and fees) must be received by the school within 30 days of the invoicing date. All further tuition payments must be completed before September 1 for all full-and 5-day boarders. Day student tuition is paid trimesterly with rates due on the first business day of each new trimester.

The school reserves the right to charge interest at a rate of 5% and a processing fee on all overdue invoices and to deny the student’s right to attend classes, participate in school-related activities and functions, remain resident in the school’s dormitories, receive official school reports of progress and transcripts, or remain on the school’s campus should tuition not be paid in due time.

Upon acceptance of an admission offer through the submission and reception of a signed Admission Agreement, the parents or guardians agree to abide by the financial, withdrawal, refund, and dismissal policies of AIS-Salzburg.

Tuition Policy for Boarders Restricted From Travel For The Fall of 2020

For boarding students who have been accepted and have made a down payment, yet are unable to travel to the school because of government restrictions, tuition will be revised based upon eventual enrollment and residency at the school. On a weekly basis, such students will be charged the day student tuition rate as published in the AIS-Salzburg brochure for the 2020-2021 school year. This weekly tuition will be covered by the previous down payment received so that no further tuition payments are required unless this period of restriction from travel extends beyond the end of the Fall Trimester (November 27, 2020). As soon as restrictions are lifted and the student arrives at the school, a new invoice will be calculated based upon the number of weeks of online instruction plus the remaining year as a full boarder at the respective rates. This payment must be made upon arrival and the start of residency.
