Basic School Fees

The fees are subject to change depending on conditions and situations. They include the fee to be paid to our Institute for the normal running of the school, and the affiliation fee to be paid to UPS.

The fees to Don Bosco Institute of Philosophy includes admission fee, tuition fee, library fee, school administration fee, and maintenance fee. It is to be paid in three instalments, besides the Admission Fee. Unless there are very serious reasons approved by the Dean of Studies or the Academic Board, we do not accept new students if they arrive two weeks after the academic year begins.

After the purchase of the Admission form and the verification of credentials, the candidate will be allowed to sit for the entrance exam on one of the days allocated for the purpose. In case of failure, the candidate can still try only once again in any of the following academic years.

The Admission Fee (N10,000) for all new students is to be paid by the beginning of the academic year (by 2nd October 2019). There are two fees to pay: to DBIP and to UPS. DBIP fees are to be paid in Naira (Year I & II: N 140,000, Year III: N 149,000). UPS fees (€ 105 for year I and II, € 130 for year III + 500 N for bank charges) are to be paid in Euro to avoid any damage to the Institute or to the student because of the fluctuation of Naira.

For the academic year 2019-2020, fees and deadlines for their payment are as follows. Fees in N to DBIP don’t include the fees to be paid to UPS in € by bank.

Non-payment of any fee bears as consequence the suspension or dismissal from the Institute, unless the Dean of Studies may grant some concessions.

If UPS fees are not paid by the deadline, the name of the student will be withdrawn from the list of students sent to UPS for yearly registration.

If any fee remains unpaid at the end of the academic year, the student will not be allowed to continue in the following academic year, or, in case he is a third-year student, he will not be admitted to the Long Essay Defence and Comprehensive Exam. He will not receive documents and certificates of any kind. The payment of the debts annuls the measures mentioned above.

Other Payments

The payment of the school fees according to the deadline gives right to one copy each of the following documents: ID card, each Semester Results Sheet, DBIP final Transcript, DBIP Certificate, and UPS Bachelor Diploma. The request of further copies and of other documents and certificates will be subject to fee as follows.

At the expiry of the three years foreseen for the curriculum at Don Bosco Institute starting from the enrolment date, the student is supposed to submit his ID card by the Graduation day and he is no longer considered a regular student at DBIP, either he graduated or not. If not submitted, a penalty of N 5,000 will be asked before withdrawing the certificates.

Therefore, he has no longer the right to make use of the Institute premises (library, class rooms and computer lab).

In case of resit examinations or rewritten term papers, the student must pay a fee of N 2,000 and N 1,000 respectively, or the amount necessary to cover up all the expenses to be given to the lecturer if the number of students does not cover up the expenses.

A student may be charged with a special fine of N 10,000 in case the term paper presents a serious degree of plagiarism (copying from not or wrongly or partially acknowledged source for the explicit scope of deceiving the lecturer about the true authorship of the paper).

Additional costs will be asked also in case of change of supervisors (N 4,000 and N 2,000 for the two of them), and repetition of the Long Essay Defence and the Comprehensive Examination (minimum of N 2,000 each, or to cover up all expenses).

 

If a student extends his permanence in the Institute beyond the three years required, he must pay the whole fee in case he is asked to attend classes again. But in case he intends simply to make use of the facilities of the Institute (library and computer room or study room), he is asked to pay either a yearly fee of N 50,000 or a daily fee of N 500. Finally, in the case the student is only to resit examinations, he is simply to pay the usual fee for resit examinations.
