Tuition Fee Payment Deadline
Once you have been accepted into one of its programs, The Faculty of Humanities requires its applicants to settle the payment of the tuition fee for up to one semester in advance.
Newly admitted students must pay the tuition fee 14 calendar days after receiving a Letter of Acceptance. Once the sum of your tuition fee has been credited to the university's bank account, you will receive a Confirmation of Payment, which might be needed during the process of the visa application. Please note: issuing the Certificate of Payment might take 10 working days.
 
After the first semester, the payment deadlines are as follows in the case of continuing (old) students:
  • Fall semester: 15 October

non-EEA nationals
If you require a visa to come to Hungary for the purpose of studies, we strongly recommend you transfer the tuition fee for the first two semesters to the university's account as soon as possible after getting accepted. 

EEA nationals
If you are an European Economic Area (EEA) national, the Faculty requires you to pay for the tuition fee up to one semester in advance. As soon as you transfer the tuition fee, and have met with one of International Student Advisors to set you up, you will be able to register for classes in line with the university's registration schedule.

Important notice: Please only transfer the tuition fee to the university’s account after you have been accepted into one of our programs. You will receive a Notification of Payment, which will provide you with further instructions on the payment procedure. Do not pay until you have been officially accepted into the program.

Paying tuition fee for Foundation students: According to the Academic Regulations of ELTE (353. §, ad 131. § (9), (4) 803) Foundation students must pay the tuition fee for the first semester until registration.
