Students enrolling without any such agreement must pay a fee of:

US$1000 dollars (one thousand U.S. Dollars).

However, when paying before May 18th, students will be granted a US$50 (fifty U.S Dollars) reduction on the program fee*.

If you make the payment after the established date, you will be charged an additional 20% penalty from the program fee. 
We cannot issue any refund once the payment has been done.
