Fee for New Admissions

For new admissions, a fee equivalent to 5% of the Annual tuition fees will be due upon acceptance of the Offer Letter and confirmation of enrollment in the applicable academic year.

This fee is non-refundable/non-transferable but adjustable against the first term tuition fee once the student joins the school. This fee is refundable if the parent gives notice of withdrawal before the beginning of the academic year, as per ADEK policy.

Re-enrollment Fees 

To secure a seat for the next academic year, parents are required to pay a re-enrolment fee.

This fee is non-refundable, but it is adjustable against the first term fees.

Please note, students who are unable to be registered with the Ministry due to missing required documentation, or students with an outstanding fee balance, will not be able to re-enrol for the next academic year.

Methods of Payment

Payment of the first term’s fees is due on or before the first day of the academic year.

We accept the following methods of payment:

  • Cash
  • Current-dated cheque (made out to GEMS World Academy, Abu Dhabi)
  • Credit card
  • Wire transfer (please contact our accounts department for details)
